Ski holidays in Lofer

Lofer is a small picturesque village with a pedestrianised centre, located within the province of Salzburgerland, on the border with the province of Tirol.

The Loferer Alm has a good snow record and tends to hold its snow well into April and although it is virtually unknown on the UK market it is very popular with the Austrians. Lofer is one of those little gems that hopefully the masses don't find out about!

The village is very proud of their ski shuttle, a small colourful train, that runs every 20 minutes between 08.30 - 1800, to and from your hotel to the gondola and children's and beginner‘s area. The skiing is perfect for intermediates and beginners, with wide open and well-groomed pistes, and for the advanced skiers among you, there are some challenging off-piste runs. The main village gondola will whisk you onto the slopes in no time and once you are up there the dramatic mountain scenery is sure to impress you, while refreshments can be taken at one of the rustic mountain hut restaurants to be found on the piste.

Activities are mainly centred around the ski school and the ski school director, Herr Herbst and his instructors, who all speak English, will entertain you with a variety of activities on offer each week, including tobogganing, curling, après ski parties and regular fireworks displays.
