Austria, The Ski Juwel Area
Ski Alpbach!

Its traditional wooden farmhouses are set against the backdrop of the Gratlspitz peaks. The resort has won awards for being “Austria’s most beautiful village”, and having the “purest air” in the country A gondola links Inneralpbach with the Wildschönau ski area, giving beginners and intermediates an even wider selection of runs to choose from.
