AdventureAustria is based in Lienz, the capital town of East Tyrol. The Dolomite town of Lienz has two excellent ski resorts both located very close to the main town centre. Zettersfeld ski resort and Hochstein ski resort are both covered by one ski pass with free ski bus services running between them.
The Zettersfeld ski resort is the larger of the two and is characterised by its wide open pistes and south facing direction offering generous amounts of sunshine. Zettersfeld ski resort has something for everyone and is particularly well suited for families and intermediate skiers. Also worth mentioning is that you’ll only be paying child prices for ski passes for children right up to the age of 18.
Lienz is a working functional town (12,000 inhabitants) rather than a purpose built ski resort so there are plenty of restaurants, bars, shops and things to do when you’re not on the slopes.
Visitors also have a large choice of accommodation in Lienz ranging from self-catering apartments right up to 5 star hotels.
