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. Access to the piste can normally be gained 120m along the road then onto a pisted track direct to the lifts. The Alpendorf ski Area, is accessed from Alpendorf via either an express heated chairlift and a gondola. The ski area extends to Falchau via the G link cable car at Wagrain installed in 2013. There are a good variety of open pistes, tree lined runs, fun-parks, and beginner areas. The area benefits from being in the Eastern alps and 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.
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). For the adventurous you can ski somewhere new every day with the same lift pass and experience the contrast of high mountain scenery to the perfectly listed runs through the trees, chose from the extensive linked areas to the quieter but equally entertaining smaller resorts.
The village of Alpendorf is a beautiful Alpine resort, providing a variety of excellent restaurants, bars, ski shops and ski schools. The apres ski bars are an experience not to be missed.
The apartment is professionally cleaned between guests and is provided with linen and towels.

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. Ski rental and ski schools can be booked on arrival. Ski school group classes typically start on Sunday and run from 10am (meet at the top of the Gondola) until 1:30 with a 30minute break for lunch. However you can join a class on any day to match your ability or book a private lesson to suit. A selection of trainer lifts operate from the top of the Gondola and there is a nursery for smaller children to let parents get some free skiing. There are a good selection of progressive runs, which the instructors will ensure all levels are capable of enjoying. At the end of the day, there is a choice of the scenic ski run back to Alpendorf or for beginners downloading on the Gondola.
