Skiing in Austria
In the early 1920s, an Austrian ski instructor named Hannes Schneider caught the eye of a filmmaker and became the star of a documentary on skiing. The film became an international hit and Schneider’s method of skiing, known as the Arlberg technique and which his ski school taught at the St. Anton resort, became the template for modern-day ski turns. So it’s no wonder that Austria has become synonymous with the world of skiing and snowboarding. But Austria is more than simply having fun in the snow; it is the land of Gemutlichkeit, which is a German word meaning, among many things, “geniality”, “friendly” and “hospitality”. You will have no trouble finding Gemutlichkeit at any one of Austria’s 434 ski and snowboard resorts; they know how to show a visitor a good time, both on and off the slopes. With 2,543 lifts and 7,189 kilometers of runs, Austria more than a lifetime skiing, both on- and off-piste, to explore: Ski Amade, in the Salzburg area and named for its most famed local, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, is a network of 28 small resorts and villages with 860 kilometers of runs accessed by 278 lifts and buses; Ski Arlburg, just west of Tyrol, is the home of the St. Anton, Lech and Zurs resorts; SkiWelt, in the Tyrol, is another large network of small resorts with 90 lifts and 284km of runs, and Kitzbuhel, another Tyrollean resort, has 51 lifts and 510km of runs.
