AdventureAustria is based in Lienz, the capital town of East Tyrol. The Dolomite town of Lienz has two excellent ski resorts (Zettersfeld and Hochstein) which are both located close to the town centre.
For those looking to discover further family friendly ski resorts in East Tyrol, the Golzentipp ski resort in Obertilliach should definitely be on your list.
This small and compact (and rather quaint) ski resort is located in approximately 35 minutes’ drive south of Lienz.
The Golzentipp ski resort has excellent access to the slopes and is suitable for young children, beginners and less experienced skiers who may be intimidated by larger busier resorts.
The town of Obertilliach itself is a small, charming and very traditional East Tyrolean village which reminds you of how things once were in this beautiful untouched part of Austria
