One of Austria’s best-kept secrets, the charming resort of Maria Alm is just over an hour from Salzburg airport in the Hochkönig ski area, which also includes the resorts of Dienten and Muhlbach. Visitors will enjoy extensive, peaceful slopes, beautiful scenery and quite affordable prices – it’s a wonderful choice for families.

There are some 125km of pistes to explore across the Hochkönig area, the majority of which are cruisey blues and reds. This makes it an excellent destination for beginners and intermediate skiers, and further links to the rambling Ski Amadé area provide even more options – though one will need a hire car to make full use of the ski domain.

There isn’t much to keep advanced skiers entertained here, however, other than two snow parks and the off-piste terrain, which can be explored with a local guide. Night skiing is also on offer, and non-skiers can enjoy a decent range of activities.

The town itself sits at a humble altitude of 800m, and although there is skiing available up to 2000m the snow can deteriorate quite badly at those lower levels towards the end of the season. To make up for its low altitude, Maria Alm boasts absolutely stunning scenery and slopes that are largely quiet and peaceful. The resort centre is very traditional and pretty, offering a true Austrian experience – it’s not really on the map for most British tourists – and the compact layout means visitors can conveniently explore the village on foot.

As the cherry on top, the food and drink prices are quite cheap by Alpine standards. There are some wonderful establishments for an après-ski drink, and many of the hotel restaurants offer a superb standard of cuisine.

Holidaymakers interested in Maria Alm can fly into Salzburg, which is 1 hour and 20 minutes from the resort, or Innsbruck, which is 2 hours away. Those staying in Maria Alm without a hire car should take advantage of the free bus service, which links the neighbouring villages of Hinterthal, Dienten and Muhlbach.
Great places to check out in Maria Alm for an après-ski beverage include the Dengl-Alm, Chili's Pub, Der Bachwirt and Zum Steinbock. If you fancy a spot of dancing later in the night, the Tenne Almer disco is the place to go – they offer themed nights, foam parties and prizes.
For those seeking some non-skiing activities in Maria Alm, the resort features an indoor swimming pool, tobogganing, sleigh rides and plenty of winter walking trails – a great way to experience the Alpine surroundings.

In terms of restaurants, Maria Alm has some fantastic options tucked away in hotels like the Thalerhof and the Steinbock Alm. An absolutely charming choice is the Almer Bauernkastn, which is nestled in the residential area behind the Alpenland Hotel.

The Ski School Maria Alm offers a wonderful kindergarten at the Aberg middle station for kids as young as 2-years-old – do make a reservation, though!

Private nanny services are also available.
