The Upper Austria/Salzkammergut region
The Salzkammergut is a place to enjoy at leisure. No matter whether you are seeking relaxation and simply wish to unwind, or whether you would rather engage in something more energetic - you are sure to find what is right for you. Natural scenic beauty, friendly people, vibrant traditions, a rich cultural landscape and interesting sights are the ideal ingredients for the ultimate holiday experience.
During the winter months there is access to many ski resorts all within 20 mins drive,the largest of which is one of Austria’s best kept skiing secrets www.dachstein-west.at, which is great for intermediates, with limited access for beginners however ski school is available (my wife is a learner and was very impressed with the instructor's, also great for kids wanting to learn and was voted last year as one of the best ski resorts for families in Europe). Annenberg one of the villages that make up the area is home to Marcel Hersher the current ski world champion and you can try out his slalom run and speed run in the village.
The other less well known resort near Bad Aussee is www.loser.at , www.tauplitz.at are not as big but still has some great skiing with excellent views of the Dachstein mountain range and a good ski hire and school available.
For the real ski expert the www.Krippenstein.at ski area (nr Obertraun) also 20 mins away has the best off piste skiing according to several ski commentators in Europe and a brand new cable car will be open for the 07/08 season.
For the more adventurous the international ski resorts of www.schladming.at, www.obertauren.at, www.badgastein.at and www.flachau.at are 1 hrs drive away with access to the third largest ski area in Europe www.skiamade.at. I have put some videos of the area on youtube under the resort name that I have taken when skiing there, check out 'sking in loser' and you can then look at the other videos I have done.
If you want a break from the skiing then visit Salzburg for the famous Christmas Markets or the ones held around the lakes in St Gilgen, St Wolfgang or Halstatt.
The area of Bad Goisern is transformed into a Mountain Bikers paradise and in July they host the world famous Salzkammergut Trophy (part of the World Mountain Biking Championships and the hardest circuit in the world). Hiking is excellent in the area with well marked out trails at the back of the hotel.
