Austria’s greatest skiing paradise, Ski amadé is a unique destination. Where else can one ski pass hand you access to up to 760 km of unrivalled slopes, 270 modern lifts and 356 perfectly groomed runs, spread across five breath-taking resorts?

Whether you want to ski, dine on fine food and wine, or discover your Zen amid a mountainous panorama, this is the place to head to this winter. Its many joys are set over five regions: Salzburger Sportwelt, Schladming-Dachstein, Gastein, Hochkönig and Großarltal. Here we explore just some of the many must-dos.

Across the Ski amadé region there are an unparalleled variety of experiences: snow parks for beginners and pros alike, and fun slopes and funcross for the kids.

For a truly breathtaking ski experience, take a cable car into the amazing mountain world of Salzburger Sportwelt, which boasts 210km of slopes and five dramatic valleys. Here, whether you’re a classic carver, freestyler or half-pipe pro, every mountain enthusiast is catered to across the region’s perfectly groomed pistes and activity-packed funparks, while 200 rustic huts serving delicious Austrian cuisine will help fuel you between sessions or provide the perfect après-ski treat. It’s also a popular area for the hardcore skier, thanks to its 12-peak challenge, which ranges from Grafenberg at 1,702m to the Gamskogel at 2,188m. You’ll even get a trophy if you complete the whole tour – no matter whether you did in one day or throughout your holiday.

The Salzburger Sportwelt is also perfect for families. There is a variety of fun slopes, beginners slopes as well as kids parks, such as the Fichtelland at Radstadt-Atlenmarkt. For the little ones who want to become pros, there are numerous excellent ski schools available with English speaking ski instructors.

While off-piste, a wealth of charming adventures await, from romantic horse-drawn carriage rides through the snow, to breathtaking balloon rides above the snowy mountain ranges around Filzmoos – two must-experiences you’ll remember forever.
