Ski chalets Austria - for charm and tradition

Ski chalets Austria - check availability and prices

Austria is a place that once skiers have visited, they often don’t want to go anywhere else. The villages are traditional, the scenery outstanding and the locals are friendly and welcoming. If you need any persuading, the film 'Chalet Girl' could help encourage you to try Austria; the film was shot in St Anton am Arlberg.

There is something to suit everyone in Austria, from family skiing in Obergurgl to the best après ski in the Alps in St Anton. Whilst Austria is not as high as some of the French resorts, the snow in Austria tends to be much more consistent with a colder, continental climate compared to the French Alps. The Arlberg region for example averages over 7 metres of snow a season so there is plenty of skiing right through until mid April.

Chalets in Austria are less plentiful than in France and as such there are only a few resorts where chalet accommodation is available. Most of the chalets in Austria centre around the Arlberg region - St Anton (the vast majority of chalets are here), Lech and St Christoph. A few more Austrian resorts where chalet accommodation is available are Ischgl, Obergurgl and Mayrhofen.

A lot of chalets in Austria tend to be former guest-houses and as such the bedrooms are often quite spacious with nearly all of them having en-suite facilities. A downside to these properties is that quite often they don’t have a proper living room and instead tend to offer only a dining room and maybe a small bar area. Smaller chalets in Austria are quite hard to come by outside of St Anton and tend to be chalet apartments rather than stand alone chalets. However, there are barely any of the 1960s brutal apartment blocks that dominate some French resorts. Austrian resorts seem to have made a big effort to keep all new buildings in a traditional style which definitely adds
to the resort atmosphere.

Chalets in Austria range from fantastic value accommodation to the super luxury – some of the chalets in Lech are the most expensive on our site! However, the recent growth of chalet hotels in Austria has meant that there are some great mid-market options available. These properties are former hotels so often have facilities such as swimming pools, wellness centres and plenty of space to relax. Additionally, some of these chalet hotels have bedroom suites which are perfect for families.

Package holidays to Austria tend to be slightly more expensive than in France, due to the lower number of tourist beds, but once in resort, Austria can be very good value. With some of the biggest ski areas in the world, outstanding off-piste skiing and great value on-mountain dining we thoroughly recommend booking a ski holiday in an Austrian chalet.
