Austria Ski Weekends & flexible, tailor-made Short Ski Breaks
Snowscape offers ski weekends and flexible short breaks to Austria. We have extensive local knowledge and our tailor-made service aims to match your requirements with our resorts and hotels to ensure you enjoy maximum skiing time with minimum hassle.
Much as we would love to, we do not promise any date, duration, hotel or resort. We do, however, know what works, understand the limitations of short stay availability in Austria and have excellent relationships with hotels that offer us just the right balance of flexibility.
Our packages usually include the accommodation and airport transfer element to which we or you can add flights. We offer a wide choice of Hotel options including Luxury Spa Hotels and we can pre-book lift passes, hire, private lessons or guides in advance.

Planning your Ski Weekend : Where to go?
The resorts of the Kitzbüheler Alps region (Fieberbrunn, Kitzbühel, Kirchberg and St Johann in Tirol) offer a great variety of skiing, the best choice of flexible hotel options and resorts close to a number of airports. From Salzburg, Zell am See and Kaprun have some great short stay options whilst Saalbach-Hinterglemm is more limited. Innsbruck offers the best access to Stubai (Austria’s largest glacier resort, short transfer), Sölden (Big skiing, big après-ski, limited short stay options) and St Anton (very limited weekend options and premium prices).
Unfortunately, the bigger and more well-known the resort, the less flexible hotels are likely to be and this is certainly the case in the likes of St Anton and Ischgl where most hotels book out Saturday-Saturday.
When to go?
Almost without exception, hotels only accept 7-night stays in the high season (New Year, February School holidays). For the best ski weekend availability, aim for pre-Christmas, January, early February, March and April. You may want to consider arriving on a Saturday or Sunday for 3 or 4 nights rather than over a weekend. A Sunday-Wednesday break, for example, offers less crowded slopes and keener prices. The more flexible you are, the more Hotel and Resort options are available.
Getting to Austria : Flights and Airport Transfers
Salzburg, Innsbruck and Munich (Germany) are the main gateway airports to the Austrian Alps. Salzburg and Innsbruck offer the shortest transfer times however, Munich offers the best choice of flight times, in particular, late flights home on your last day for max skiing time. Our packages usually include Accommodation and Airport Transfers. We offer either shuttle or private small group minibus taxi or coach transfers that ensure waiting time is kept to a minimum. Transfers by train or hire car are also an option albeit more time consuming. We can advise on the best flight routes, times and fares or you are welcome to book your own flights.
