Altenmarkt - Skiing in Austria

Endless skiing made in Austria

860 km of piste, 270 lifts and 25 resorts in five regions, all available on one lift pass and just a snowball´s throw from Salzburg .

This is skiing that brings music to the heart. Not only is it skiing on a grand scale, but there is no other snowsports region anywhere that is so easy to get to.

Salzburg is served by numerous flights from the UK , including budget airlines, and from the airport you can be at Apartments Hilton in less than an hour.

Each area - Salzburger Sportwelt, Schladming-Dachstein, Gastein, Grossarltal and Hochkönig - is massive in its own right.

It is almost impossible to ski them all on the same holiday - but you can try! It´s certainly possible to try several areas, as ski buses connect them with each other and with Salzburg .

This is skiing and boarding for all levels, and for all the family, from large lift-side nursery areas to tricky, testing black runs. In between are hundreds of kilometres of the best cruising in the Alps . Long runs served by some of the most modern lifts anywhere - state-of-the-art gondolas and six-seater covered chairs.

  • Find your favourite slope! There are 356 piste, covering 860 km, offering perfect conditions for everyone and at all levels.
  • For exquisitely groomed piste each day, a 250-strong team works each night using 125 of the most modern snowcats.
  • 200 ski lodges and mountain restaurants are perfect for everything from unhurried breaks to lively parties.
  • Here snow is almost guaranteed! That's because of the ideal local microclimate, and slopes up to 2,700m.
  • To provide the best snow conditions all season, 80% of all piste can be covered by artificial snow.
  • in the past six years € 320 m has been invested in world-class amenities and, of course, the best snow!

From your hotel direct to your favourite piste! Are you a powder enthusiast or a pleasure skier? The World Cup village of Zauchensee is the highest ski resort in the Salzburger Sportworld. Stylish 4* hotels, a wide range of gastronomy and the impressive World Cup Arena make for a pulsating ski resort in the midst of the beautiful mountains. Direct and fast access with modern lifts to the peaks of Gamskogel, Rosskopf and Tauernkar with their varied pistes, make this ski resort fit for the winter Olympics.

The World Cup Arena is your entry to the ski circus. An escalator takes you up to the lift base stations which fan out to piste for every level. At the end of an eventful day, you can return to the arena and relax in a cosy café or join in with the après-ski fun. Do you want to test the latest model of carving skis or have you forgotten your goggles or lost a glove? Don't worry! The arena boasts its own in-house sport shop!


Apartments Hilton

Quietly situated on the edge of town, apartments Hilton is only a two minute walk into the town centre of Altenmarkt, this unspoilt, traditional little town has everything to offer from Supermarkets, bakeries, bars, restaurants, cafes...to chemists, banks, sports shops, clothes shops and not at over inflated prices, you would expect to pay around 3 euros for a beer and 6-8 euros for a pizza and it won't cost you much more to eat in the mountain restaurants!

There is a regular ski bus service, a short ride will take you into the heart of the 'Ski Amade' region and again it is a level two minute walk away. Although this area is relatively unknow to British skiers most of the locals speak very good english and are very friendly and welcoming.

There is also the posibility of skiing on the 7th day as many UK flights leave in the evening, at Apartments Hilton we also offer you shower & changing facilities so you can freshen up for your flight home.
