Ski touring / snow shoeing near Vienna

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi everyone,

 

A friend and I are going to Vienna in February 2013 for 1 week.  We hope to be able to get away to the mountains for a few days.  We are both average skiers (no backcountry or powder experience though).  We would like to get our first experience of skiing / snow shoeing in the Alps.  Does anyone know a good guide / good town to head to, or what our first step should be?

 

Thanks in advance for any advice,

 

Dave

Try www.ski-Austria.com if nobody has any personal knowledge of where best to go.

It is a tricky one because snow that side of Austira can be unpredictable. Resorts are listed below showing distance from Vienna. I would look on skiclub.co.uk for resort reviews and on www.wtss.co.uk as an additional resource. These are not the well known Austria resorts but should be fine for what you want. 1:00 from Vienna Muggendorf Puchberg am Schneeberg Reichenau an der Rax Schottwien - Maria Schutz Semmering Semmering - Hirschenkogel St. Corona am Wechsel Ski Resorts within 1.5 hours of Vienna Airport 1:30Hauereck / Waldheimat Langenwang Lilienfeld Mönichkirchen Mariensee Pezinská Baba Spital am Semmering - Stuhleck St Aegyd am Neuwalde Ski Resorts within 2 hours of Vienna Airport 2:00Aflenz Kurort Annaberg Brand-Nagelberg Hebalm Hochoetz Mariazell Mitterbach am Erlaufsee Präbichl Puchenstuben Sommeralm St Jakob im Walde St Radegund bei Graz Waidhofen an der Ybbs Ski Resorts within 2.5 hours of Vienna Airport 2:30Altenmarkt-Zauchensee Dachstein West Gaberl Goldeck Hirschegg - Salzstiegl Hochschwab Hohentauern Hollenstein an der Ybbs Lackenhof am Ötscher Losenstein Mariahof Modriach Pyhrn-Priel Rieseralm Spital am Pyhrn St Wolfgang am Zirbitz Staré Mesto Pod Snezníkem Trahütten Velké Mezirící Weinebene Windischgarsten Závada Špičák Ski Resorts within 3 hours of Vienna Airport 3:00Altenmarkt Barenalm Gmunden Grünau im Almtal Göstling-Hochkar Hinterstoder Klippitztörl Makov Mariborsko Pohorje Mikulov - Bournák Poruba Skalka - Krahule Src Marela
