Austria has few peers as a year-round holiday destination, with plenty of winter sports in the Alps, some of the most impressive and overblown architecture in Europe and an unrivalled musical tradition that even The Sound of Music couldn't sully.

The following link will lead you to the website of the Austrian Snowsports Association.

When it comes to Austria ski resorts, visitors know they will get wonderful snow, steep slopes, sweeping runs, and powder chutes during the winter season, plus year-round snow on the glaciers.

Powder Skiing Lech (Austria) Over 500kms of skiable terrain, it would take years to cover even half of it. The snow is deep and terrain in steep.

The main attraction of Hintertux is obvious – its glacier. It is not only extensive, it arguably has the most challenging and interesting runs on any lift-served alpine glacier.

Note that snow and weather conditions can vary significantly in the mountain environment especially in the summer months. You need to be prepared to perform at your best in a variety of snow conditions.

Hintertux is a village at the end of the Tuxertal valley, a side valley of the Zillertal Valley, Tirol, Austria. It is part of the municipality of Tux, which encompasses the entire valley.

Hintertux is famous for its glacier skiing area, usually marketed as "Hintertuxer Gletscher", but actually located mostly on the Gefrorene Wand (German for "frozen wall") and partly on the Riepenkees glaciers. The highest of the 22 lifts in the area reaches 3250 m of altitude.

The Stubaital is an alpine valley in Tyrol, Austria. It is the central valley of the Stubai Alps. The Ruetz river flows through the valley. This 40-km long valley runs southwest from Schönberg im Stubaital, near Innsbruck. Below Fulpmes, the towns lie on terraces above the Ruetz on either side of the river. At Fulpmes the terraces merge to form the valley floor. South of Neustift im Stubaital, the main valley continues as the Unterberg and the tributary Oberbergtal branches to the north. The ÖBB operates from the 16-MW hydroelectric power plant located in Fulpmes. The cinema in Fulpmes still uses the oldest film projector in Austria.

Please meet your Trainer at 8.30am on the morning that your course starts. The meeting point will be the ticket office at the Base Station.

Trainers will be wearing a BASI branded uniform.
