    What do you want to know about it?

    There are mountains and snow...
    The views are absolutely spectacular.
    Best months to go are Dec, Jan and Feb.
    Innsbruck is a popular centre to base yourself in.
    There are plenty of hotels in the mountains that might be better if you rent a car. over 7 years ago

    I found the Zillertal region was fabulous. You could buy one lift ticket & virtually ski a different mountain every day. Each mountain has several hundred kilometers of piste. From this region (I stayed in Hippach) you travel up and down the valley by train and/or bus (all available if you have the whizz bang all inclusive ski pass) to access the different mountains.
    With this pass, you can also ski a glacier.
    When I went to this region I was traveling by public transport, and everything was easily accessible.

    Also around the region of Innsbruck is pretty good. A little out of Innsbruck is Seefeld (still within the region of Tirol), I also found that there were several mountains within a short drive from where I was staying, and again, I skied a different mountain almost every day of the week.
    We were about half an hour form the border of Germany, so were able to spend some days skiing in Austria and other days in Germany, within an hour drive we had access to Germany's highest slope, Zugspitze, which was absolutely AMAZING!!
    Though a little frightening, from the cafe I observed 3 helicopter rescues!!
    This region I had a car, and am not able to comment on how easy it is to get around with public transport, but again you can buy a ski pass that covers several different mountains.

    Absolutely FANTASTIC skiing!!!! over 7 years ago

    There are more than 600 ski resorts in Austria ranging from small villages with just a couple of lifts to big commercial ski resorts. If you are going early or late in the season then you will want to go to a resort with a high altitude to guarantee the snow conditions. Most of the more popular resorts have a very modern lift system meaning minimal queues. Most also offer amazing toboggan/Sledge runs which are fun for all.

    The food is good the people are friendly and the Apres Ski is the best found anywhere in Europe. The cost is also reasonable by comparison to other western European ski resorts like France and Switzerland.

    Go there and you won't regret it it is quite simply amazing. almost 5 years ago

    I always liked http://www.skiamade.com/en/winter in Salzburg because it is the biggest ski-area with one ticket.
    It is not the cheapest, but skiing itself is expensive - but fun.
    A smaller area but still fun (and the view on the top, you have it everywhere!!) http://www.saalbach.com/
    Very good, still a too big area if you are only for one week
    You have young people and party in every area!!
    You can go to hotels - most have a bar in the cellar - like a party pub. Or you just follow the mob :)

    In Schladming http://www.skischladming.com/ there is the Night-race at the worldcup - also very good area and experience - skiing at night with floodlighting - amazing :) over 3 years ago
