When you think of skiing holidays; Austria is one of the first destinations that spring to mind, because it is home to some of the most famous ski holiday destinations in the world.
Most Austrian ski resorts are mainly traditional, picturesque villages that have expanded to meet the needs of skiers. This means that ski resorts in Austria usually have charm and ambience in abundance, but lack the convenience of the ski-in, ski-out accommodation of purpose built ski accommodation. However, excellent ski bus and ski lift systems mean that getting on Austria's ski slopes is still easy.
