Winner of “best groomed pistes” and voted the best ski resort in Austria 2015, the Salzburger Sportwelt Ski area has developed into one of Austria’s premier ski regions. Offering over 350km of beautifully groomed piste, the area offers an amazing choice of interconnected skiing made up of three areas, Flachau, Wagrain and St Johann-im-Pongau.

To get the most out of your tour we will ensure that your group will visit each of the areas during your stay by planning a provisional ski timetable based on the current snow conditions. Our ski school partner will be working towards the beginners in your group being able to ski from Flachau to Alpendorf all in one day. A massive achievement for the first timers.

Let it Snow!

The area boasts one of Europe’s best snow records. The resorts central alpine position ensures that whenever a snowstorm arrives in the Alps, from either the South or the North, it is going to fall on the slopes of the Sportwelt area. The season starts in early December and runs through until late April.

The Salzburger Sportwelt invests huge amounts of money annually in the comfort and technology of their 270 modern alpine lifts and cable cars. The resort is covered by over 1000 snow canons, improving the reliability of snow cover and therefore maximizing your ski experience.

This area excels at providing après-ski for school groups offering possibilities including billiards, bowling, swimming at Aqua Salza Fun Pool and Therme Amadé, a visit to Salzburg, Ice-cream and pizza nights and mini golf. There are also many shops, cafés and bars.

Perfect for Beginners, Improvers & Experts Alike

Students will be totally spoilt for choice with the sheer volume of pistes and slopes in this incredible resort.

Most groups will head up the 6 seat high speed Gondola to the Gondl Stubn meeting point. From there, groups can enjoy the wide runs down from the Hirschkogel top station or head over to the superb beginners area at the Kreisten Alm restaurant. Once up and running the groups can really take advantage of the long red and blue runs that spread out from Hirschkogel & Sonntagskogel peak and enjoy the two-valley ski safari over to the town of Wagrain. Intermediate skiers can explore the whole area as the wide variety of red runs offer great opportunities for a young person to improve their skiing skills. Advanced skiers, will find that the area is not without its challenges; not least the 6km run from the Griessenkar ridge in Flachau.
