The largest resort in the southern Austrian region of Carinthia, nestled up to the Italian and Slovenian borders. Scenic and sunny, it has a wide range of intermediate slopes, along with a selection of mountain huts and Ristorante for a delicious lunch.
Nassfeld itself and Sonnleiten are mid-mountain lift bases, with accommodation, while there's more down in the valley village of Tröpolach at the bottom of the access gondola. A two-stage gondola gives access to the Madritsche mid station at 1920m, with nursery slopes and amenities. Lifts serve slopes below Trogkofel and the higher peak of Gartnerkofel at 2195m.
In addition to the majority blue and red runs, there are some black pistes and access to ski routes. There's a half pipe, fun park and race course with automatically-recorded videos - look out for the 'Nice Surprise' information boards guiding guests to these highlights. There's even free Wi-Fi across the resort, so you can share your snaps while still on the slopes.
Away from the mountain, try the 80km worth of cross-country trails, see the valley by snow shoe, or go on a horse-drawn sleigh ride.
4.5* Falkensteiner Hotel & Spa Carinzia - stylish and modern rooms; located right beside the main lift; massive spa area with a range of pools, saunas and treatments; panoramic restaurant with Alpine and Adriatic cuisine specialities; free WiFi throughout; childcare and soft play area.
3.5* Hotel Franz Ferdinand - range of facilities including an on-site nightclub; great value for money; close to lifts; free WiFi throughout; private ski stores with boot warmers for each room!
A week's half board at the 3.5* Hotel Franz Ferdinand costs from £545 per person (two sharing) including Easyjet flights from Gatwick to Klagenfurt departing 13 January 2018 and transfers.
