Austria’s Activity Galore  for the Winter Holidays

Austria’s government and its tourism industry are working hard to ensure that the 2020/21 winter holidays are both safe and enjoyable for visitors, with a myriad of guidelines and measures in place from the gondola to the ski lesson, to the alpine hut and spa. Alongside the introduction and observation of COVID-19 protective procedures, Austria continues to offer guests outstanding winter holidays. Across the provinces of SalzburgerLand and Tirol, new experiences and infrastructural updates abound for the 2020/21 winter season to ensure that holidays in Austria are as safe, worry-free, and enjoyable as possible.

Winter holidays are sublime in SalzburgerLand. In total, this Austrian state is home to 1,140km of blue runs, 1,305km of red, and 305km of black – all accessible with the Salzburger Super Ski Card. Off the slopes, cozy mountain huts, Christmas markets, horse-drawn sleigh rides, toboggan runs, snowshoe hikes, and ice climbing await eager holidaymakers. There are updates aplenty across the province this year, with a new “Panorama Link” ten-seater gondola connecting Flachau / Wagrain and Flachauwinkl / Kleinarl, creating one of the largest winter sports regions in Europe. St. Gilgen on Lake Wolfgang introduces the Zwölferhorn eight-seater gondola, adding a restaurant to the lift’s mountain station. For those eager to try out the latest accommodation:

408km of SalzburgerLand’s pistes are available via Zell am See-Kaprun with the Ski ALPIN CARD, which grants access to the Schmittenhöhe, the Kitzsteinhorn Glacier, and Skicircus Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn. In this beautiful region of lakes and mountains, guests can test the latest ski models and join special workshops during November’s ‘Snow-How-Days’. Furthermore, from 11th – 13th and 18th – 20th December, holidaymakers can take part in the “Digital Winter Opening Schmittenhöhe”. SalzburgerLand is also home to the high altitude Obertauern, with its long November to May season and one of Europe’s steepest mogul slopes, the Gamsleiten II.
