Skiing/BoardingSkiing in Alpendorf

The ski resort is fairly small, but has excellent links to surrounding ski resorts. It is part of the Ski Amadé region, located in the Salzburg Sportwelt section which has a number of snow-sure ski resorts. This means that you can have access to 114 pistes and approximately 33km of runs, from Alpendorf, so if you never want to ski the same slope twice then this is the place for you! Alpendorf is particularly popular with beginner and intermediate skiers and whilst there is not so much choice for the expert skier, the slopes that are available are of an excellent quality and are fairly quiet so you can ski in peace. Skiers can also vary their ski experience by trying some cross country skiing as an alternative to the slopes.

The ski lifts are of an excellent quality and can connect you to Europe’s largest ski and snowboard network via The Amade Ski Alliance, which allows you to use ski lifts in 28 of Austria’s ski resorts! The lifts in the local ski area are fast and modern with an ability to move 56,000 people in an hour. This is excellent for skiers as it reduces waiting time, allowing you to spend less of your day queuing and more of your day on the slopes!

Alpendorf is also extremely popular with snowboarders, with terrain parks that contain half-pipes, gap jumps, rails and many more ‘boarding delights.

Alpendorf Apres Ski

The Austrians are known for hosting the best après ski and there’s an excellent selection of after ski activity to suit everybody’s tastes, whether you fancy a drink in a mountain hut or a dance in a bar. You’ll find five traditional mountain huts to enjoy a drink in and numerous restaurants where you can spend a pleasant evening. Après ski is a great way to mingle with fellow skiers and get to know the locals; it’s one of the best parts of skiing!

The Après Ski Bar is a hut that always offers an excellent night out. It’s is located directly next to the ski lifts making it an ideal place to start drinking once you’ve finished on the slopes. Every Thursday evening from 8pm the bar plays dance music and often has guest DJ’s so party goers are guaranteed a great night out. Friday evenings start early, with skiers attending an après ski party that starts at 3pm and goes on into the night. This is a great place to end your week of skiing dancing the night-away with fellow skiers!

Alpendorf has a number of great restaurants if you fancy a quiet winter warmer and some hearty nourishment rather than a full blown night out - there is nothing better than a good meal to warm you up after a day of skiing. There are plenty of restaurants to choose from suiting a variety of taste and Austrian cuisine is well worth a try!The majority of the restaurants are family friendly and will cater for children. If you fancy an intimate, romantic evening then Hotel Oberforsthof provides award winning fine dining and an atmosphere to match. Buchauhütte is an amazing mountain restaurant with wonderful views and delicious food. The restaurant works on a self-service basis and is a great way to spend a quiet evening whilst at the resort.

There are plenty of other activities to keep non-skiers entertained while the rest of your party is on the slopes. There are plenty of sporting facilities in the resort, so whether you are interested in football or tennis there will be something to suit you. If you fancy a relaxing day, there are some great options: the Diesel Cinema screens films in their original language every other Thursday so is a great place to go with the family and watch the latest blockbuster. Many of the hotels offer spa facilities so non-skiers can spend the day being pampered and join their party relaxed and rejuvenated in time for some après ski fun!

Best time to ski Alpendorf

When is the best time to ski Alpendorf?

The ski area is at a slightly lower altitude than your average Austrian ski resort meaning that snow fall cannot always be guaranteed but to tackle this, high-performance snow-making facilities are used to produce excellent quality snow throughout the ski season. If you’re booking a holiday well in advance, opt for early season or wait for a last-minute deal when the snowfall has been amazing - when the snow is good, it’s really good.
