There are several good reasons why Salzburg attracts winter sports enthusiasts from all over the world. The federal state has a particularly high density of ski resorts but that's by far not all. The quality of the winter sports offers at the ski resorts meets the very highest standards, and the lifts are among the most modern in the world. Another plus: The winter season is particularly long. It lasts the longest at the glacier ski resort on Kitzsteinhorn, where skiers can enjoy practising their turns on natural snow until well into the summer. Salzburg is also home to Austria's largest ski resort alliance, Ski amadé, which includes the popular Snow Space Salzburg ski resort.
Winter sports highlights on Salzburg's slopes range from freeriding to nighttime skiing. Away from the slopes, the federal state of Salzburg has a lot to offer as well, though. How about an adrenaline rush while ice climbing in Rauris? The fairytale feeling of winter hiking through one of Salzburg's national parks? Deep relaxation during a wellness break at one of the numerous thermal spas? Or a heaping scoop of culture in Mozart's birth city, Salzburg, at the famous Salzburg Christmas Markets or in the beautiful Silent Night town of Oberndorf?
