ISCHGL, AUSTRIA

Thanks to its snowsure slopes, it’s easy to see why Ischgl’s one of the top Austrian ski resorts. Most of the terrain’s above 2,000m, so there’s room to ski crisp corduroy well into spring. It’s excellent for intermediates, with 238km of long, wide-open runs to explore – a favourite is the Duty Free Run, a 12km blast on linked reds from the Palinkopf peak down to Samnaun in Switzerland. For experts, there are tricky blacks and heaps of off-piste to tempt too.

Stay one week, half board, at the 4 Hotel Seiblishof from £1,126 per person when booked online (based on two sharing), flights from Birmingham to Innsbruck and transfers (price given is for departure on 2nd April 2022).

Direct flights available from all major UK airports.

OBERGURGL, AUSTRIA

Up at 1,930m, Obergurgl’s one of the highest villages in the Alps and has one of the longest ski seasons anywhere in Austria. This centuries-old village was around long before the lifts arrived, so it’s got a really authentic alpine feel – picture wooden chalets clustered around an 18th-century church.

The 122km ski area packs in lots of variety, from snowsure beginner areas to tree-lined trails and wide-open pistes that intermediates will love. It’s also known for having quiet slopes and an excellent ski school, so it’s one of the best resorts for families too. Eager to stretch your ski legs? Hop on the Top Express gondola to explore the slopes around the neighbouring hamlet of Hochgurgl. Or to really make the most of lift passes, take the free bus to Sölden, which has two glaciers in its ski area.

Stay one week, half-board holiday at the 4 Hotel Alpenaussicht from £1,652 per person when booked online (based on two sharing), flights from Edinburgh to Innsbruck and transfers (price given is for departure on 2nd April 2022).

Direct flights available from all major UK airports.
