Ski Areas near Salzburg City
Skiing in the Salzkammergut Region
Skiing in the Salzkammergut means fun and action for the whole family. In winter the meadows, grazing slopes and hiking paths that attract hikers in the summer turn into ski pistes of varying difficulty. The snow transforms the mountains into action-packed vibrant winter sport resorts and the whole atmosphere changes in anticipation of a great winter season. The best thing about the ski resorts in the Salzkammergut: they're not as crowded as the some of the major ski resorts and yet offer excellently prepared pistes, great snow conditions and a well organised infrastructure. The cosy mountain restaurants serve wholesome Austrian specialities, just the thing for hungry skiers. There are several excellent ski areas near Salzburg City within easy driving distance of the Garden Hotel Sonnleitn such as Hintersee-Gaissau, Postalm and Zwölferhorn.
