The apartment is located in the ski village of Alpendorf in the Apartment chalet of "Ciovo". The apartment has modern furniture and is well equipped for self catering. A ski and boot room is located in the ground floor, which has a door direct out to the carports and onto the ski area, which can be accessed approximately 100m from the apartment.
The Alpendorf ski Area, is serviced via a modern heated chairlift and a gondola. The ski area extends to Wagrain and onto Flachau, giving a good variety of open pistes, tree lined runs, fun-parks, and beginner area. The area has an excellent snow record and an extensive snow making system to ensure a good base is established. Alpendorf is part of the Ski Amade ski area, which covers over 850km of piste and 270 modern lifts. New for 2013 / 14 season are 2 new chairlifts and the G Link Cable car, which links the Alpendorf area continuously to Flachau. As part of the development the many of the runs have been widened, including the main run down to Alpendorf.
Alpendorf is centrally located in the Ski Amade area, enabling fantastic variety within a 30min drive to other areas such as Schladming, Bad Gastein, Zauchansee, and my personal favourite Muhlbach (shhhhh it's a secret).
The village of Alpendorf is a beautiful Alpine resort, providing a variety of restaurants, bars, ski shops and ski schools. The apres ski bars are an experience not to be missed.
The apartment is managed by an experienced UK skier who will arrange to meet you with the key and I'm sure can offer great advice on where to go for the best conditions.

Visitors to the area will enjoy fantastic alpine scenery in summer and winter. Travelling south from Salzburg, the landscape changes dramatically from the flat plains of Germany to the classic dolimitic alps of Austria. Salzburgland is towards the eastern end of the alps, and thus enjoys reliable winter climate without having to venture to high altitudes. This allows many of the ski resorts to be located within and through rural villages giving the classic alpine atmosphere.
Salzburgland runs from the Northern edge of the alps, making the area easily accessible from South Eastern Germany and the city of Salzburg.
Alpendorf can provide all essential ski services, including rental, ski schools, a local shop, bars and resturants. The main town of of the area St Johan is located 3 km away and offers all key amenities you'd expect in a large town.
During winter the focus is on downhill and cross country skiing, with a range of associated events and apres ski activities. During summer this area is central to many of the main tourist attractions, such as the icecave, castle and falconary centre at Werfen and the Lichtensteinklam Gorge.
