St. Wolfgang

The Austrian Ski Resort of St. Wolfgang has direct access to 10km6 miles of downhill skiing, with 18 individual pistes, served by 9 ski lifts.

The skiing is at relatively low altitude, so snow cover can be variable.

There are three Airports within two hours drive, so ski weekends, snowboard breaks and short ski holidays to St. Wolfgang are perfectly feasible. Munich Airport and Salzburg Airport are just one hours drive away, in good driving conditions, so you can be on the piste quickly.

Skiing in St. Wolfgang

The Postalm is a family ski area with trails between 1200 and 1900m above sea level. A new quad chairlift was recently installed, giving an extra bit of speed and comfort to the area which previously just had T Bars.

There are some 17km (11 miles) of trails predominantly easy blues making this an ideal spot for first timers to learn in a beautiful, unpressurised environment with a friendly ski school. For complete beginners here are in fact nursery slopes at Puchberg right by St Wolfgang but these may not had adequate snow cover due to the low altitude early and late in the season.

Intermediate and advanced skiers may enjoy whizzing around the slopes for a few days but are likely to want to take advantage of the Dachstein West area pass which includes half a dozen ski areas in the region adding up to 140km (87 miles) of trails between them. The largest is at Gosau which boasts some 50km (31 miles) of runs up to five Kilometres long and more challenging terrain than the Postalm. It is an hour's ski bus ride away however.

There are some 60km of cross country trails in the area.

Snowboarding in St. Wolfgang

Snowboarding is limited on the Postalm, although the new quad chair is a better way to get up the slopes than the T Bars. Thanks to a good local snow school its not a bad place to learn boarding however.

Those in search of more park life should probably head further afield however. Gosau, an hour away on the ski bus, offers a park complete with half pipe.

St. Wolfgang Aprés Ski

No visit to St Wolfgang is complete without a drink (or possibly a meal or indeed an overnight stay) in The White Horse Inn, made famous by the Benatsky and Stolz operetta. Indeed the resort organises a regular operetta evening for you to enjoy the full effect.

If you just fancy a traditional après scene however, the Kap Horn and Kraftstoff Bars are both usually popular. The Tanzlokal Kellerstüberl is the village disco.

Other apres activities can include skating on the frozen lake, traditional bowling, sleigh rides and snowshoe walks. Weekly trips are organised to the casino in Salzburg.
