St Wolfgang is the perfect place for beginners.
St Wolfgang prides itself on being a family orientated ski resort and if you are new to skiing and want to learn in a relaxed, friendly environment then be sure to book your next, or first, skiing holiday in St Wolfgang.
Located on the Wolfgangsee Lake, it is one of the most beautiful locations in Austria, the landscape has hardly changed for several hundreds of years and the village maintains all its history and natural beauty. Only two hours away from Innsbruck airport, which is less than a two hour flight from London, it is the perfect distance for a weekend break or for a longer holiday to really polish off your skiing skills.
Who should book a skiing holiday in St Wolfgang?
St Wolfgang is not best suited for expert skiers as the local terrain is not all that challenging. It is possible to travel to the Dachstein West area for demanding slopes, but St Wolfgang itself is more appropriate for beginner or intermediate skiers. St Wolfgang has 18 individual pistes that are set between 1200 and 1900metres above sea level, giving you great views across the valley from the mountain. Several of the pistes have dedicated nursery areas for those new on skis, and the trails are predominately made up of blue runs one you’re ready to tackle them.
There is a great ski school for adults and children that will help you learn the techniques needed to get you down the mountain safely whilst having fun doing so. The ski school does offer snowboarding lessons, but again, due to the nature of the slopes, only novice snowboarders would be suited as there is no board park.
There is a wide variety of different ‘goings on’ in the town of St Wolfgang including ice skating on the frozen lake, sleigh rides and snow shoe walks. All of which are sure to entertain the family and can be done in the evening or during the day if you fancy a break from skiing.
In the evenings there are a range of restaurants to choose from, many of which serve traditional Austrian cuisine, but if you’re travelling with fussy eaters, there are many that serve a range of foods to suit all tastes, as well as offering children’s menus.
For those of you holidaying without children and happy to stay out a bit later, there is a selection of bars in the main town that have a relaxed approach to apes ski. Or if you fancy a bit of a trip book yourself onto one of the town’s weekly trips to Salzburg’s casino to try your hand at gambling.
