Set in the beautiful Austrian Alps the vast area of Ski Amadé awaits. This skiers’ paradise stretches across 2 federal states (Styria and Salzburg) and comprises of 5 regions, 25 resorts, 270 modern lifts and cable cars and a staggering 760km of perfectly groomed slopes all combined under one lift pass.

In the heart of Ski Amadé lies the picturesque Salzburger Sportwelt that has seen a brilliant improvement for the winter season 2021/22. The new 10-person Panorama Link cable car is now connecting the Grießenkareck mountain with the Shuttleberg in Kleinarl-Flachauwink bringing together the 3 renowned ski areas of Snowspace Salzburg, Shuttleberg Kleinarl-Flachauwinkl and Zauchensee-Flachauwinkl meaning that our groups staying here can now enjoy a fantastic 210 km of interlinked pistes and 70 modern lifts with snow security from December until Easter. The huge choice of ski slopes caters for all abilities from a complete beginner up to expert skiers.

Wherever you base yourselves here, there’s plenty to look forward to in the evenings as well, from quizzes and ice-skating to slides and whirlpools in the two local waterparks.

Skiing

Our Wagrain groups can find their feet on the beginner runs while intermediates hop on the Flying Mozart gondola for access to the upper slopes, where the futuristic G-LINK lift connects the two mountain peaks Grafenberg and Griessenkareck. Groups staying in Alpendorf will enjoy its wide blue and red runs and soon progress to other areas in this large resort.

end faq



Stayed as part of a secondary school trip with a load of kids, and must say it was an ideal hotel / resort. The hotel is about 200 meters from the chair lifts and drag lift. It is possible to ski back to the hotel.
