The chalet-style village of Niederau, in the Austrian Alps, is a favourite ski resort for beginners and intermediates. The resort is quite spread out, but accommodation is mostly within a five-minute walk from a main ski lift. The ski resort offers a picturesque atmosphere within the Wildschonau valley and is considered one of the Tyrol’s loveliest and most unspoilt valleys. The link over to Alpbach gives access to the Ski Juwel’s full 145km of runs which are all covered by the ski pass. This can be accessed via the free ski bus which takes you to Auffach.
For après ski, Niederau has a relaxed vibe with a few lively bars around the gondola base station.
For beginners there are wide nursery slopes ideal for families with small children. The ski schools are also excellent in Niederau (with English speaking instructors) as well as the childcare post skiing.
Experience skiers or snowboarders will probably need to adventure over to neighbouring Auffach (via the free bus) for more challenging terrain.
The ski resort of Niederau is ok for snowboarders, but they should watch out for a few flat sections.
