For snowboarders, the conditions are good enough for the ISF World Pro Tour to have been here. But more than that there's great off-piste here, a lot of which is completely untouched for days! This provides a lot more challenge for advanced and expert skiers. There are also 100kms of cross-country skiing trails to allow you to explore the surrounding area.

Apartments can be a great idea on a ski holiday. They often work out cheaper than a chalet and many of the newer developments include amazing facilities that would rival any hotel including swimming pools, saunas and even spa facilities.

Alpbach itself has a good number of beautiful tyrolean chalets and apartments but hotels are more popular in this resort. That said you might want to check out Gastehaus Larch which has some good self catering apartments and offers bed and breakfast accommodation.

Are Apartments Really Such a Good idea?

As we have said they can offer very good value for money. But even if you are looking for luxury don't discount apartments as many are now architecturally designed and a million miles away from the awful concrete apartment blocks that have blighted many purpose built resorts.

In addition apartments can be a great idea if you are travelling with other families or in a large group. If you all stay in the same apartment block you get to be together but will have more space and independence than you may have in a chalet.
