    A picturesque lakeside resort with winter activities for all

    In the heart of the Austrian Lake District, St. Wolfgang provides a stunning Winter Wonderland setting perfect for beginner to intermediate skiers and non-skiers alike. The village with its cobbled streets is nestled at the foot of the frozen lake providing a touch of magical Narnia to your skiing experience. Both of St. Wolfgang’s ski areas are reached by bus (45mins/1hr 30mins) with spectacular views on route. The ‘winter paradise’ package is a must for a full winter wonderland experience jam packed full of snow activities.

    Ski information

    Ski Information Beginners

    St. Wolfgang is a beginner's paradise. The Postalm has an extensive range of easy slopes on which to gain confidence (on occasion, lessons may also be taken on the Puchberg nursery slopes just outside St. Wolfgang). Complete novices will enjoy learning with our special 'First Time’ packages.

    Ski Information Intermediates

    The Postalm is ideal for improving your skiing technique in very picturesque surroundings. Dachstein West (Gosau) is also well worth a visit for a day or two. It is a large, more challenging area, primarily made up of red runs.

    Ski Information Advanced

    Skiing for experts is limited on the Postalm. However, there are some great runs to tackle in Dachstein West (Gosau), with 141km of piste.
