Skiing/Snowboarding somewhere in Austria November?
Posted November 11th, 2012 - 10:45 pm by from Perth, Australia (Permalink)
Gruss Gott! I am hoping someone can help me out with some info on skiing in Austria.

I am currently in Austria visiting some relatives. While in Austria (the home of winter sports) i would really love to find some snow to ski or snowboard on. Being from Australia, we don´t see snow very often, and I have only been a couple of times, so this would be pretty special for me.

I´m staying near Vienna atm, in NiederÖstereich, and unfortunately there is keine snow or keine burg here. I have to be back in London by Nov 26 to fly out. Would I have any chance of finding snow anywhere anytime before this? I have heard Tirol is a good area, however I am not sure about the best towns to stay.. Also I am pretty low on funds at the moment, so I don´t know if I could afford to stay in a resort or anything like that.. If anyone near some skifields could host me that would be amazing! Of course I would return the favour by hosting you at the beach in Sydney and take you out for a surf :)

Hope to hear from someone soon!

Hey,

I am from Lower Austria and I usually go to Schladming for skiing.. it might be a more expensive than Tirol but it only takes about 5 hours by train and the world cup 2013 is going to be there :)

It's a nice and famous place and you can already ski there.
There is a youth hostel http://www.jufa.eu/unterkuenfte/jufa-schladming.html

If you can't find a host or someone who can offer you more information about Tirol..

regards,
Nici

Thanks for the info Nici!

So I have extended my flight dates and now have until Dec 3 to find some snow.

I am heading up to Vienna tomorrow from Bosnia and will stay there with family for 2 nights probably.

After that I would like to set off and find somewhere to try and ski!

If anyone can reccommend somewhere, host me, or is keen to come and watch me make a fool of an Aussie on skis or a snowboard, let me know!

cheers guys,

Alix.
