St Wolfgang Ski Resorts & Holidays

GENERAL

Set right in the heart of the Austrian Lake District, St. Wolfgang provides a beautiful setting for a 'Learn to Ski' or 'Winter Paradise' holiday. The Postalm alpine plateau, reached by a spectacular ski bus ride (35 mins) through gorges and around hair-pin bends, has an excellent snow record. Alternatively, ski buses also enable you to explore the ski area of Gosau (1 hour). St.Wolfgang has lots to offer other than skiing (see our 'Winter Paradise' package) making it an ideal choice for groups of skiers and non-skiers - and if you choose to travel on the 17/12 you can enjoy the delights of "Advent in St. Wolfgang" and nearby Salzburg's Christmas Market.
