This landlocked state in Central Europe has magnificent alpine scenery, fairytale castles galore, river-speckled lowlands and outdoor thrills to satisfy everyone from hikers to hang-gliders.
It’s also one of Europe’s winter sports capitals. This is particularly true for skiing and snowboarding holidays, with a glut of great ski resorts awaiting – including some of the cheapest Alpine resorts going. Everything from lift passes and instruction to dining and pints generally costs less than in France or Switzerland.
A gateway to the Arlberg region, St Anton is supposedly where Alpine skiing was invented, as chronicled in the Museum St. Anton am Arlberg which is housed in a handsome chalet.
A vast network of trails is available via multi-passes, and lifts and terrains are slick and well-maintained. In all, there are 340km (210 miles) of pistes, plus some 200km (125 miles) of off-piste thrills.
Much more old-fashioned (and as pretty as ski resorts come), Kitzbuhel’s low altitude means that visitors come here more for glamour than for challenging ski or snowboard runs – although there is the Hahnenkamm, a fearsome World Cup downhill. Once a silver mining centre, Kitzbuhel now contains marvellous frescoes alongside plenty of slopes and networks.
Then there’s Mayrhofen, with its Vans Penken terrain park which has ski sectors for children, intermediates, advanced and pro riders. It’s also home to the sheer “Harakiri”, a vertical drop of 375m of groomed slope – once at the top, you’ll understand why it’s nicknamed Harakiri, after the Japanese term for ritual suicide. Meanwhile, the après scene is buzzing and packed with options.
It's older than you might think, skis are just the beginning of the fun and... what's North Korea got to do with it? You may be a a pro on-piste but we bet you didn't know these ten facts.Read more about 10 things you probably didn't know about skiing

*ATOL (Air Travel Organiser's Licence) is a financial protection scheme for package holidays: It provides support to consumers in the event their holiday provider collapses. Booking with an ATOL holder ensures that you won't be left out of pocket and you won't be left stranded abroad. All package holidays compared using TravelSupermarket are protected by ATOL.
ABTA (Association of British Travel Agents) offers similar cover for packages booked with its members. However, while ATOL predominantly covers flight-based packages, ABTA covers non-flight based holidays (such as rail and cruise) and linked travel arrangements. If you are unsure whether or not your trip is covered by ABTA, check with your provider.
