Winter is on its way and what better place to enjoy all that this season has to offer than in Upper Austria: Pine and spruce of Muehlviertel’s mighty woodlands are dusted with luxurious snow, the gorgeous mountains of the country’s south and south-east are covered in white... And once the snow flies, it’s time to grab your skis or snowboard and head for the hills.
You are looking for the perfect winter playground, a place in which to recreate and rejuvenate in a family-friendly atmosphere? Well, Upper Austria’s ski areas are excited to welcome you to the world of skiing and riding. From Hochficht in the North to Dachstein Mountain in the South—Upper Austria's seven Top Ski Resorts shine as family areas, characterized by a spirit of thrift and amiability: All in all, they contain 240 kilometers of runs and thousands of feet of vertical descent. These are the places where snow riders on a budget come to slide, where kids learn to ski, where little ones have fun at licensed daycare centers, and where smiles brighten every day.
One of the best ways to enjoy Mother Nature's wonders is on the stunning network of cross country ski trails. We bring a lot of experience and enthusiasm to your winter vacation, whether it's walking the lovely cleared hiking trails or snowshoeing into a winter wonderland. Is it any coincidence that the classic images of winter are pure Upper Austria?
