    Skiing and Snowboarding in AustriaBy Suzanne Bender Austria has excellent snowfalls, world-class ski resorts, slopes to suit all levels, it's easy to get to and it can also be very affordable if you look around. The largest and most moderately priced area is St. Anton. This is an area that attracts serious skiers that are up at dawn to conquer the mountains.[smg id=98]There are specially designated parks and facilities for snowboarders and countless cross-country tracks. If you are looking for deep powder off-piste (unmarked and ungroomed runs) and almost certain big snowfalls, check out the Arlberg in western Austria. The Arlberg is also the place to go for heli-skiing and heli-boarding.[smg id=99]The five famous ski resorts in the Arlberg region are at the towns of Lech, Zurs, Stuben, St Cristoph and St Anton. There are about 85 lifts that operate here and a single lift pass links the resorts. St Anton is the biggest resort in the Arlberg. Lech is the place to get your handmade boots (which also come in 1/2 sizes!).If you are an experienced skier looking for highly challenging off-piste runs, it is highly recommended you hire the services of an experienced and certified mountain guide. These professional guides know where to find the best snow and the best off-piste. They also know the valleys, passes, mountains, and most importantly, they know the danger spots that should be avoided!Snowboarders should visit in December and January when there is typically a lot of powder snow and fewer people in the resorts. With fewer people on the slopes, the virgin snow is a snowboarders dream. With the Northern Limestone Alps offering some of the best snowboarding in Austria, St Anton attracts snowboarders in droves as the destination of choice.There are permanent road and pass closures in the Arlberg during the winter. It is highly recommended to check local information about road/pass closures that are affected by weather conditions.Looking for the best skiing and []snowboarding destinations?
