If you can not get enough of the speedy wind in your face and wonderful carving turns then the glacier skiing in Austria is something for you. You can ski on your summer holiday not far from our 3 hotels in Wagrain.
Summer skiing is something for the ambitious and those who just can not park the skis until the winter season starts again. It may also be a fun activity for the summer vacation that evokes memories of the winter ski holiday. You will discover that the beautiful views, the glacier and the experience is much the same as in the winter.
However, it is important to mention that summer skiing is characterized by warm weather. The snow is very hard the first two hours after the lift has opened, but already a few hours before lunch the ground gets softer. Most glacier destinations close at lunchtime, depending on the current weather conditions.
