group ski resorts in Austria
Austria has the best après ski in Europe and with high fairly snow sure resorts, it is a good choice for younger groups although the resorts do cater for all types of skier and has the skiing to keep everyone engaged.
The Austrian resorts have retained traditional charm and with superb service and friendliness combined with some of the best in resort value in Europe, they are a great choice for group ski holidays. Our top picks are: St Anton, Kitzbuhel and Mayrhofen.
Kitzbuhel is arguably the most famous and trendiest resort in Austria, perfectly groomed slopes, a top snowboard area and exciting off-piste and cosy mountain huts for that all important catch-ups with Gluhwein or hot chocolate. It is a lively town, larger than most resorts and therefore offers a lot by way of facilities, entertainment and nightlife.
Mayrhofen has an attractive Tirolean village centre, true to its history, a lively nightlife, including night time sports events, like tobogganing. The ski area is across two mountains, the Ahorn and Penken and also includes 3 other resorts and the area is quite extensive, but you can buy the Zillertaler Superski pass, which gives you access to the whole Zillertal Valley including the Hintertux Glacier and all it 639km of pistes.
St Anton has world famous après ski, with on piste bars, the Moosewirt and Crazy Kangaru, it will be hard to get a better after ski drink anywhere. Considered the birthplace of Alpine skiing, it is safe to assume that the skiing is very, very good, for all levels but especially for more advanced levels. St Anton is part of the Alberg Circus ski area, with 260km of pistes and the best snowboarding in Austria.
