Winter in Alpendorf
Alpendorf acts as the entry point into the vast Salzburger Sportwelt ski region that includes the villages of Wagrain, Flachau, Zauchensee and 6 others! In total it covers some 270 lifts and forms the backbone of the much larger Ski Amade region. The ski area offers a wide variety of pistes and is well suited to groups of mixed ability. Beginners will find lots of confidence-boosting pistes that are well groomed and maintained. More advanced skiers will find some easily accessible off-piste that is often left un-tracked for two or three days after each snowfall! Opened only in 2015, the new single-span cable car above Wagrain has transformed the ski area making much of the area accessible without the need for any bus transfers.
