SalzburgerLand, Austria

The SalzburgerLand area covers a number of pretty ski resorts and villages in close proximity to Salzburg. We feature two resorts in the region which are Grossarl and Bad Gastein. The latter is a traditional Spa town (it is not a small traditional mountain village), dramatically set in a gorge with a waterfall crashing beneath the main street. The centre of the resort is impressive with the Spa town heritage and is interesting to explore on luxury ski holidays, but is not easy to get around with small children on account of the topography.

The ski area though is impressively extensive (covering 20 resorts in the Ski Alliance Amade area) and more snow-sure than most Austrian resorts. Unfortunately, the four different sectors are not well linked, and without a car, the skier is reliant on the bus or train services. However, if you have the patience, the resort and the slopes have a lot going for them for luxury ski holidays. Good, atmospheric mountain restaurants, interesting pistes, lively nightlife and there's plenty to do for the non-skier.
