Kitzbühel

“One of the largest ski resorts in the world, rich with Austrian history and a traditional approach to skiing. From a gastronomical perspective, the food and beverages are of a traditional Austrian nature. The Apreś Ski scene is phenominal. There are dozens of bars and clubs in and around the Kitzbühel village. Transport to and from Kitzbühel can be presented with challenges as the directions...” --RichardW1995

Lech-Zurs

Lech-Zurs

“This used to be my 'home' mountain when I lived still in Europe: went to ski there once or twice a year for 1-2 weeks for 25 years. Went back last year (living in Canada now since 4 years): it is still a magical place. Contrary to northamerican resorts and some French resorts, this place has a history: plenty of atmosphere. As the terrain is really big and varied, you can pass a day of skiing...” --Pieter

St. Anton

St. Anton

“ All right, I wrote the copy for the description above, but didn't get around to rating the place when I added St Anton to Epicski's data base, so I'm reclaiming my original text and adding a few recollections: The draw: some of the best frontside / sidecountry terrain in all of Austria, amazing Alpine vistas, and a reputation for the best Apres-Ski scene in the Alps. Expect lots of...” --Veloscente

Kuhtai

“ Compact little village, great for families, if you want a few beers after skiing, dinner at the hotel and a quiet night. There are a couple of bars and a small nightclub. The buffet dinner at the Hotel Mooshaus is excellent. The lift-served ski area is not massive, but there are great opportunities for touring. One nice little mini tour that we did, involves hiking up to, and skiing down,...” --Martin Bell

Heiligenblut

Heiligenblut

“My favorite hill. Heiligenblut is not the biggest place and it can be a bit difficult to get to, but it is so beautiful there that it will take your breath away. It's really two mountains, with the second accessible by a small underground train. The on-mountain huts with food and drink are a nice touch, and provide excellent food with warm, friendly service. They really groom well there,...” --Tervizeks

Zillertal Valley

Zillertal Valley

“The Ziillertal valley is a highly enjoyable place to ski and great value, but you need to be aware of what it is you are buying. Several resorts are connected, being Mayrhofen, Finkenberg, Eggalm. However the stunning Hintertux Glacier, Kaltenbach and Zill am Ziller areas are an annoying bus ride away. This means that a car or a thorough knowledge of the bus timetable are needed to really make...” --Lewn777

Saalbach-Hinterglemm

“ I skied Saalbach-Hinterglemm-Leogang for one day in February 2003.  My experience is from ten years ago and therefore dated, but I'm entering this review because it had none and is a major Austrian ski area not far from Kitzbuhel.  I really enjoyed my lone day there, but do not have intimate knowledge of the resort so take this superficial impression with a grain of SALT, especially...” --Jamesj

Schlick 2000

“ Schlick 2000   First things first, I really enjoyed it there. It's where i learnt to ski and is a great place to learn to ski. This is because there is plenty of beginners slopes to teach you the basics and get used to, then as you get better there is always a slope that can accomodate you. What i mean is as you get better there is always a slope that will challenge you. Once you've...” --jagclarke
