Skiing in Austria for the first time

Created: March 04, 2020

This is the first time I am actually going to try skiing. I didn't prepare for it very well, but I hope I can borrow the equipment in the ski area and attend a beginners course for 1-3 days. Let's see how this will end and what good slopes are for beginners. At least I am sure Après-Ski will definitely make fun.

This is the starting point of our ski holidays from where we want to explore the ski area "Zillertal-Arena."

Königsleiten Dorfbahn 1
Zillertal Arena

It's never too late to learn to ski. In the Zillertal Arena, the largest ski area in the Zillertal, there are many ski schools that also offer an easy introduction for adults. Ski courses usually start on Sunday or Monday and it is recommended to check the times on the websites before. Many ski schools also offer equipment rental - often at a special price with a course. Another possibility is private lessons, which give you more flexibility and direct feedback how to improve faster.

Filzstein Bahn
Good Slopes for Beginners

In my opinion Filzstein offers ideal slopes for beginners. Many wide and long slopes allow you to work on your technique undisturbed and without stress. Especially in comparison to Königsleiten the slopes are not too steep and also not so crowded. You can reach Filzstein easily with the free of charge ski bus (rides every 30 minutes).

Bergrestaurant Panorama-Alm
Ski Lunch with a View

The Alm was an absolute highlight during the daily skiing. When the weather is fine, it offers an amazing view of the Alps and also good food. It is located a bit away from the main slopes and therefore it is not so crowded and the prices are lower. A must-eat: Germknödel or Kaiserschmarrn.
