Ski resorts in Austria
In the middle of the gigantic Sportwelt Amadé ski system, consisting of a dozen villages that together make up more than 850 km of pistes, you’ll find Flachau. This is the home peak of Austrian downhill skier Hermann Maier.

A new ski system has been built in Flachau during recent years, giving them bragging rights to Austria’s most modern ski system. This extensive ski area offers something for every skier. There are slopes in many different lengths, steepness and widths, including off piste skiing. In addition, Flachau has a recognized snow park, the design and size of which are altered frequently.

The best way to reach Flachau is by air to Salzburg and then by bus for another hour (light traffic). Like in most alpine villages, there is, apart from skiing, a range of activities on offer. Everything from luge and ice climbing to snow rafting.

was there in early Feb 2018. tons of snow. had ~40cm of fresh powder on top. skied some great easy to access off-piste areas in Flachauwinkl (the neighboring village). in the ski area the pistes are generally wide and long. overall the ski area does not feel crowded. no lines to the lifts, even though the resort was pretty full. don't miss Zauchensee area.

After three weeks in Flachau in January 2014, I can say: Unbelievable with people on the slopes! Two hours after the opening of the lift
the slopes were clean frame puckelisten. If it were not for the amount of skiers, the slopes would be superb carving backs.
Good: no lift queues! Relatively cheap!

Good place, you should go there when it's snowing so well to get a good offpiste ..

Weekend: 8, 2007.

Spent three days in the Flachau area. Stayed in Kleinarl at the hotel Landaus Lärchenhof which proved to be a really good place with awesome service! However, there is no place to choose if you want to be close to your business life. If so, it's better to live in Wagrain I would think! However, think you should live in Flachau to have the best access to the different systems. The ski buses do not go straight into the quarters, if you say so!

Unfortunately, the lack of snow was very bad. big in Austria's eastern parts at this time, after which the shooting was severely limited! In the whole Zauchensee area (especially Gamskogel top) and in Saukarkopf (between Flachau and Wagrain) there are really good areas with great potential! Especially maybe Saukarkopf, there are really nice areas to explore.

Do not miss: Zauchensee (Gamskogel) and Saukarkopf.
The toilet back in Zauchensee, oh yes!

Do not miss out: The area between Sankt Johann and Wagrain, none other!

Strengths: Mkt. rare with transverses and fats!
                     More untouched snow to us who like this!
Pretty cheap with food and drink.

Weaknesses: Bus communication between the different systems.
If you live in Kleinarl or Wagrain it takes time for Zauchensee.

Yes, you can ignore all Germans, Danes and Dutch on their way to the untouched snow, so you can really enjoy the area. Unfortunately, the ski buses go all the way to the forest, especially in the evenings. However, the taxi is quite cheap.

Was in place in Flachau 5 / 1-14 / 1-07

Must say we were quite impressed by the conditions in the slopes, many plus degrees nevertheless they were top notch!

But as a place, I have to say that Flachau is relatively boring, built in a u because the peasants do not want to drop the ground in the middle!

Musistadel is well worth a visit, live music, good beer, nice coffee and nice people!

Hofstadel after ski bar is a good move on most German, Dutch but it had to go anyway;)

The ride then ....
Flachau is very slippery just as it sounds with beautiful wide carving slopes though a minus when there are too many people !!!

Wagrain feels more sprawling with hefty lifts and half-timbered slopes ...

The gem is Zauchensee, not enough to see the women's world cup
so dumped the nice snow so it got a bit offpist yet!

Flachau is one of the biggest ski resorts I have ever seen. I was there one day under the Sports Act v.7 2003, will never forget the 110 cm snowy snow that lay in the area. I had never been to 40 cm snowy snow in the slopes and 70 cm outside. Although I only managed to score 1/10 of all the bays offered, I have to say that the Flachau visit was one of the best I did on the snowboard road. If not only for the solstice but also, although in Austria, there were at least two parks with really nice pipes and jumps. There's just plenty of Flachau, visit it!
