“Arrive and revive,” nowhere else is this promise as well kept as in Carinthia, in Austria’s sunny south. Carinthia is where wintery dreams come true, in the form of unlimited skiing on wide, groomed slopes and an extensive range of offerings away from the pistes, including ambient and romantic evenings in mountain taverns, delicious Carinthian Alps-Adriatic cuisine, alpine customs and relaxing winter wellness programmes. All of this you’ll find removed from the culture of mass tourism, within a serene southern environment.
Due to its unique geographic location within the Alps-Adriatic region, Carinthia is particularly spoiled by the sun—guests here experience a mild yet snowy winter climate and around 100 hours of sunshine more than the other ski destinations to the west of the Alpine range.
The Carinthian winter is known for its wide array of winter delights. 23 ski areas—some of them up to 3,000 metres above sea level, others well known as family-friendly destinations—ensure that everyone can find the slope of their dreams. Some of the ski areas are known to be among the best, not only in Austria, but also in Europe as a whole. Nassfeld garnered outstanding ratings on a Europe-wide scale from the Bergsport-Portal www.bergfex.at and through a Skiresort.de test.
Learn to ski or get your money back
We’re certain that everyone will get the hang of skiing through courses with the Carinthian ski schools, which is why we offer a money-back guarantee. After a three-day course, absolute beginners will be able to navigate the blue slopes without any difficulty, or your money back. The lessons are offered at a flat rate of 129 Euro including equipment for both children and adults, all with a money-back guarantee.
A safe return to skiing with your own personal teacher
Even if you never completely forget how to ski, people who have taken years off since their last ski trip can feel somewhat uncertain hitting the slopes again after a long break. That’s why the Carinthian ski and snowboard schools offer specialised courses in which trained instructors, in individual and small group courses, teach the newest techniques to those trying to get back on the mountain. The ultimate goal is a return to safe and fun skiing and snowboarding.
Quick and safe arrival
Carinthia can be reached safely and easily by car. Those arriving by plane will find an airport shuttle service available. In addition, attractive flat-rate tickets are offered for arrival by train.
