Resort guide to Wagrain - Austria

Flachau-Wagrain-Alpendorf is the largest of the Salzburgerland Sportwelt ski areas

Wagrain resort guide - a general overview

The interlinked Austrian resorts of Flachau, Wagrain and Alpendorf belong to the wider Salzburger Sportwelt area and together form the largest of the five ski regions making up the total Ski amadé (with a total of 760km of slopes).

In 2013 the G Link modern gondola was opened and this dramatically increased the inter-linked ski area. The ski area was further enhanced with the Panorama Link lift which fully joined the two sides of the ski system with Alpendorf to the west and Flachau/Zauchensee to the east.

There is approximately 100km of blue runs, 170km of reds and nearly 40km of black/expert ski slopes. There is also an extensive network of langlauf (cross country) trails in the main valleys.

The après ski scene in Wagrain occurs immediately after skiing but this is mainly a family ski resort so there is no real nightlife to speak of save the usual smattering of small bars. Flachau which is a neighbouring resort offers a more lively après ski and nightlife scene.

  • The local ski area is quite large (over 200km of slopes) and interlinks well
