Hidden away in Austria is a quiet little resort, perfect for short ski breaks and snowboarding weekends. The fabulous resort of Alpbach is the ideal place for beginners and families.
This pretty village has plenty to offer skiers of all skill levels and is an old British favourite (there is even a British ski club here, founded in the 1950s). This resort is a great choice for those looking for a short ski break for the whole family and maintains a friendly and welcoming atmosphere whilst retaining its traditional feel. It is easily accessible with cheap flights to Salzburg, being about 1 hour and 30 minutes from the airport in a car.
The resort's nursery slopes make it a top choice for skiing novices. The slopes are well signposted so you always know what kind of run you are on. Advanced skiers will find three black runs but it is a resort designed more intermediates, with some fine terrain here.
Based right beside the village, the nursery slopes are handy and benefit from plenty of sun. Alpbach itself is a pretty village made up of traditional chalets which surround an attractive church and graveyard that is lit up at night. In fact it is only when winter creeps in that a new beauty descends on Alpbach.
If you are looking for a short ski break which gives you doorstep access to the slopes, you might also consider staying in the nearby hamlet of Inneralpbach. Inneralpbach offers doorstep skiing along with a hotel offering all the modern amenities you would expect.
If you choose to stay at Inneralpbach then don't miss out on Alpbach's après ski offerings; take a taxi for around €10 (approx £6.70) each way. The resort is home to some great bars and a lively yet informal nightclub.
A good variety of restaurants in and around the resort give you plenty of choice for meals out during your ski break and there is a great choice of off the slopes activities for you to take part in. From swimming to sleigh rides, there is plenty to keep you occupied on a skiing break, whether on or off the slopes.
Alpbach is a fabulous ski destination ideal for a weekend skiing breaks for beginners and families. Book cheap flights to Salzburg Austria online at Jet2.com today.
