St. Wolfgang ski & snowboard holidays take you to a very pretty village which lies beside the lake of the same name. It is not a resort for serious skiers as the runs are more suited to beginners and lower intermediates. There is more challenging terrain in Gosau but that involves an hour of travel by bus. St. Wolfgang is a good choice for parties with non-skiers as they can enjoy the facilities in the village or take a trip to Bad Ischl which is the closest spa town. The resort sits at an altitude of five hundred and forty metres and the highest lift is at nineteen hundred metres. There are no lifts from St. Wolfgang itself. The ski bus takes you to the Postalm plateau where there are twenty kilometres of runs. Gosau adds a further one hundred and forty kilometres to the total but that of course involves a longer bus journey. Postalm has thirty five kilometres of trails for cross country skiers and there is a snow park for boarders.
St. Wolfgang ski & snowboard holidays are ideal for beginners. This majority of runs in this relaxed resort are easy and newcomers to the sport soon find their ski legs. There are nursery slopes just outside the village which can be used when conditions are suitable. The many blue runs and the one red at Postalm are great for improvers but there is little testing terrain. Good intermediates and advanced skiers will need to take the bus to Gosau, a thrilling ride in itself with its narrow mountain roads and hair pin bends. They'll find more challenges there that match their ability.
The St Wolfgang ski season opens in the third week of December and closes at the end of March. The resort has snow making facilities on forty-five percent of its pistes.
