Why Ski Lilienfeld?

The famous resort of Lilienfeld is regarded in skiing circles as one of the most important areas of all, this having been the site of the very first slalom race over one hundred years ago. As such an historic place it is no surprise to find a comprehensive and interesting skiing museum here, as well as many other attractions. Unlike many such resorts Lilienfeld is not home to a great variety or quantity of pistes but does boast excellent skiing, and the town itself is well worth a visit for its beauty and historical importance. This region of Austria is among the most picturesque, being as it is in the midst of the Alps, and is very popular all year around.

Skiing in Lilienfeld

Lilienfeld remains a somewhat exclusive resort thanks to the limited but often invigorating skiing, and with only 11km of pistes available is very much an acquired taste. This is not to say the region is lacking in excitement, however, as anywhere that can boast a slalom course deserves respect. With direct access to the pistes from the town itself via a lift that can take one thousand people an hour – more than adequate for the region – the access is very good, and the four pistes are all interesting and much revered.

Lilienfeld can also provide its own snow thanks to the use of 15 snow cannons that produce natural snow on 5km of the slopes. This can be useful as the low altitude can lead to variable snow conditions at times. The resort is also favoured by snowboarders who enjoy the slopes to a great degree, and is rated as reasonable for beginners. The lack of variety may put some people off, but the exclusivity of the resort is a major draw.

With a highest lift point of little over 1100m Lilienfeld is unusual in being at such low altitude, and the resort itself lies at less than 400m. The downhill drop is a maximum of 740m and is considered an interesting and somewhat challenging run. Lilienfeld is perhaps best favoured by the experienced skier, especially with regard to the 4km of cross country runs that are worth checking out.

Location and Access

As an exclusive resort Lilienfeld offers decent access and is easily reached by road from the nearest cities such as Salzburg and Vienna. Austria is a pretty country with plenty of attractions, and the town is within one hour’s drive – in good conditions – of the airport at Vienna, making it ideal for short breaks as well as longer vacations.


The relatively small size of the skiing area and the town itself makes for a friendly and welcoming atmosphere, and the hotels reflect this. There are a handful of hotels in Lilienfeld itself that offer decent accommodation and the town also boasts some nice restaurants and bars, while the surrounding area is home to some pretty towns and villages that also attract visitors.

What to Pay

Lilienfeld offers surprisingly good value in terms of accommodation with a four star hotel available from €70 per night, and there are some very impressive chalets in the region suitable for larger groups.
