It is one of Austria's most beautiful resorts - the ultimate winter paradise village. The skiing is excellent for beginners and intermediates, with some challenging off-piste skiing for the advanced. The sweeping ski slopes of Alpbach are amongst the most attractive in the Alps.
First time skiers use the excellent wide nursery slope in the village or are taken to the "Wiedersbergerhorn" (a 5 minute bus ride away) where the gondola takes you up to further nursery slopes at the "Horn Boden".
Alpbach is an excellent choice for the intermediate skier. The main skiing access is via the Wiedersbergerhorn gondola, where you can enjoy the long tree lined red runs back to the gondola station or down to Inneralpbach.
The off-piste run down to Hygna (only advisable with a guide) will excite the advanced skier and there are also some black runs to be found on the Wiedersbergerhorn.
Alpbach is a resort fully behind snowboarding, having played host to the ISF World Pro Tour. Enjoy wides open runs, a fun park and 2 half pipes!
