Why choose Wildschönau / Ski Juwel?
Linking Auffach and Inneralpbach and doubling its available skiable terrain since 2013, the Ski Juwel ski area gives you lots more lift pass for your money. Groups are drawn back, year after year, by the authentic Austrian of Wildschönau. Traditional and unpretentious, all of the villages in the valley offer a genuinely warm welcome to their guests.
For decades, British skiers have been coming back to idyllic Oberau, which nestles in the heart of the valley. While Oberau is the largest village, you’ll find Auffach offers more of a challenge on the piste as well as the link to Inneralpbach.
The Wildschönau valley and Wörgl (a short drive away) have a range of good facilities available to groups, both off the piste as well as on, while friendly and welcoming Niederau is another long-established favourite with British skiers.
On the piste
Beginners tend to find their ski legs on the convenient village-level nursery slopes of Markbachjoch in Niederau, or the fantastic beginners’ area by the middle station in Auffach, which you can access via the Schatzberg gondola. It won’t be long before your group is raring to go on the gentle, sweeping blue and red runs from the top of the gondola in Niederau.
For those with a bit more experience on skis, a wide range of red runs can be found in Aufach, providing the ideal playground for intermediates. You can access this area from the top station of the gondola. From here, you can also begin your journey to Inneralpbach, following a red run down to the middle station.
Despite its reputation for fantastic skiing, Auffach certainly hasn’t forgotten about its snowboarders. Those among you who prefer one board to two skis will be in your element in the Snowpark on the Schatzberg.
