wildschönau In 2013, Auffach and Inneralpbach were linked allowing this excellent ski area to double its available skiable terrain and providing school groups with great value for money. Groups are drawn back year after year by the authentic Austrian atmosphere of Wildschönau. Traditional and unpretentious, all of the villages in the valley offer a genuinely warm welcome to their guests. Beginners find their ski legs on the village-level nursery slopes of Markbachjoch in Niederau or the fantastic beginners’ area by the middle station in Auffach. Before long your group will be raring to go on the gentle, sweeping blue and red runs from the top of the gondola in Niederau. For those with a bit more experience, a wide range of red runs can be found in Auffach providing the ideal playground for intermediates complete with a Snowpark in Schatzberg. You can access this area from the top station of the gondola or you can descend down to Inneralpbach following a red run down to the middle station. For decades, British schools have been coming back to idyllic Oberau, nestled in the heart of the valley. While Oberau is the largest village, you’ll find Auffach offers more of a challenge on the piste as well as the link to Inneralpbach. The Wildschönau valley and Wörgl have a range of good facilities on and off the piste, including bowling and swimming.
