Leogang, An Underrated Ski Resort in Europe

Leogang, An Underrated Ski Resort in Europe

Are you thinking about your next winter ski destination? Looking for somewhere off the beaten track and an affordable great value resort? Consider booking a break to Leogang in Salzburg, Austria. Read an experience of visiting from one of our featured travel writers Avena Davis of what to expect and why you really should book ski holiday to Leogang.


Why Choose Leogang

The skiing and snowboarding scene is something that year on year is becoming a bigger industry and all the more fun. I’ve had the luck of snowboarding down the beautiful mountains of Morzine/Avoriaz and Aviemore, and last March, I also ventured to the hidden gem of Leogang, a small town in the skiing region of Salzberg Austria.

Leogang is one of the smaller less popular destinations in the Alps, but still offers the best of both worlds; an untouched traditional Austrian town with the life and soul  that any happenin’ ski resort could offer. The prices are cheaper here than in other winter ski destinations in Europe in terms of skiing, accommodation, food, drink and going out.

After a tiring day on the slopes, there’s nothing quite like dancing the night away in a snow igloo, sipping warm jäger tea (yes it was as disgusting as it sounds, but it did the job) and being entertained by the skilled boarders and skiers on the snow jumps.


Best Pit Stop

Die Alte Schmiede, a rustic Austrian restaurant at the top of mountain was the most popular pit stop, and with their habitual onion and bacon soup, hot chocolate and endless shots of rum, it was the perfect belly warmer. This quaint restaurant was the hub for all local events, with their weekly fire & ice shows, and late night parties; it brings the nightlife to the charming little town.


What Makes Leogang Special

Like any snowboarding destination, the vibe to the place is infectious, and no matter where you venture for a snow holiday, that’s something that won’t ever change. There’s something about a trip to Leogang that is just pure bliss.

Whether it is staying in the cosy wooden chalets, making fires, and a hearty dinner together with all your family, there really is nothing more perfect. What’s more, a ski / snowboarding trip in Leogang is a perfect option for any type of holiday maker, and from sleigh rides with reindeer and spa treatments for those more indulgent, there is something for everyone.

So, to anyone, from pro skiiers and snowboarder to people that have never been before, keen for adventure and willing to take on a challenge and swap the beaches for the beautiful mountains of Leogang, you’ll never look back!
