Filzmoos

Snowboard Guide rating 6 out of 10 “A picture postcard Austrian village, with lots to see and do. The amount of terrain would be limiting for any longer than a week but Filzmoos provides challenges for all levels of riders.”

Filzmoos is just a 45 minute drive away from Salzburg and provides a picture perfect location for those wanting an authentic taste of Austria. Situated at the foot of the Dachstein and Bischofsmutze mountains Filzmoos is very much a family orientated resort set in an Austrian village and bustles with old school charm.

You are never far from hearing the ringing of bells as Horse drawn sleighs travel through the picturesque streets. Filzmoos also hosts the International Hot Air Balloon week which is worth a visit if you are there at the right time.

Filzmoos is built up with a mixture of original Guest Houses, farm buildings, shops, traditional restaurants and a number of bars. It is clear that Filzmoos has got the balance right between tradition and modernization and at its centre stands a beautiful church.

Although Filzmoos itself is quite small in terms of terrain those visiting the resort will find a variety of challengers suited to all levels of riders, and the centre has 3 snow schools ready to help beginners make their first turns. The mountain itself is split up into three main areas that offer a variety of runs, these are all linked by a regular free ski buses. The best news for most riders is the lifts rarely have any queues even in peak season which makes for a refreshing change
