Ski Holidays to Grossarl, Austria

“Perfect for intermediates, Short Ski Breaks and top quality hotels”

Just one hour’s transfer from Salzburg, Grossarl is a traditional Austrian village resort ideal for ski weekends and short, flexible ski breaks. There is excellent skiing locally for beginners and intermediates on the Grossarl-Dorfgastein Ski Area which is also part of the much larger Ski Amade Region offering over 700 kilometres of piste. Grossarl is arguably one of the best in this region for intermediates and families.

The resort is traditionally Austrian with its baroque parish Church, low-key village atmosphere and an impressive concentration of top quality 4* and 4* Superior Hotels with outstanding Spa and Wellness facilities.

If you’re looking for something different from the big name Austrian Resorts, short airport transfers and top quality Luxury Hotels in great locations where flexible stays are welcome, Grossarl could just be for you.

On the Mountain 

The local Grossarl-Dorfgastein Ski Area links Grossarl with Dorfgastein in the Gastein Valley and offers around 80 kilometres of piste in total with snowmaking on 90% of its slopes. Lower slopes wind their way through pretty forests and the area is perfect for beginners and intermediates with some freeride and off-piste options higher up above the tree-line. The Panoramabahn and Hochbrand are the main access Gondolas from Grossarl with a cluster of Hotels either within walking distance or a short hop on the free ski bus.

The lift pass also covers the vast Ski Amade region (270 lifts, 760 km of piste including the main regions of Grossarl, Gastein, Salzburger SportWelt, Schladming-Dachstein, and Hochkoenig) and the nearest resorts to explore are those in the Gastein Valley (Gasteintal) – drop in to Dorfgastein and ski bus or taxi-hop to Bad Hofgastein / Bad Gastein ski area – or Alpendorf (20 minutes on the free ski bus) with its lift connections to Wagrain and Flachau.

There are two local ski schools and the local area also features a Snowpark, Funslope and WiFi hotspots.

Off the Mountain 

No self-respecting Austrian Ski Resort would be complete without its ‘Schirmbar’ (Umbrella Bar) and you’ll find this and the popular Rambazambar at the bottom of the lifts in Grossarl.  Apres-ski is much more low-key than the brash Ischgl’s and Saalbach’s of this World with just a few local café-bars to explore later on and most guests tend to enjoy Hotel-based bars and entertainment.

Other activities include tobogganing, winter walks, ice-skating and snow-shoe walks. Resort Hotels offer pools, extensive Wellness Areas and massage and beauty treatments.

Please note that we do not have local Resort Managers in Grossarl. Our guests enjoy the remote services (24/7 mobile) of our Resort Managers who are based in the Kitzbüheler Alps region.
