Ski Amadé: The Second Largest Ski Area in Europe

Ski Amadé: one of the most under-appreciated but one of the largest ski areas in Europe. 5 principle regions, 23 ski areas, 278 modern ski lifts, 760km of pistes, over 700km of marked cross-country Nordic skiing tracks and named after one of the world’s most famous composers.

Ski Amadé, Austria, is named after the Salzburg-born Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and is the filming location for some iconic scenes of The Sound of Music. Ski Amadé stretches from the south-east of Salzburg to the upper Styrian Ennstal and boasts 25 villages which form five top resorts: Salzburger Sportwelt, Dachstein Tauern, Gastein, High King Mountain Ski Area and Grossarl Valley.

Flachau, a village in the Salzburger Sportwelt resort, is the perfect example to provide an insight into what can be expected from a trip to Ski Amadé this season:

Carefully prepared slopes, efficient cable cars to immaculate pistes and one of the largest terrain parks in Europe: Flachau uses the latest technology to ensure that every aspect of your skiing experience is fun and challenging. Absolute Park, home of Spring Battle, is one of the largest terrain parks in Europe with four different sections and a length of 1.5km.

For a  break from skiing, Flachau offers plenty of other activities, including sledding, winter hiking, horse carriage travels, ice stick shooting, snowshoe hiking, snow rafting, snow sailing and snow tubing.

There’s a selection of huts and restaurants available on the slopes which make great pit stops throughout the day and, after a day on the slopes, there is a wide choice of bars, pubs and clubs for you to either wind down or party late.

The other resorts in Ski Amadé are of similarly high qualities. Whether you’re looking for the rustic charm of Maria Alm, the relaxing thermal springs of Bad Gastien or the fresh powder in the snow-sure Schladming-Dachstein, you can find exactly what you’re looking for this year in Ski Amadé.
