Austria is another extremely popular place for people who want to work a season in a ski resort. There are a wide range of resorts suitable for all levels and also has some great glaciers allowing all year round skiing. A lot of professional snowboarders come here in the summer to train generally at the world famous SPC camp, which is a snowboard park with countless halfpipes, jumps and rails which has to be seen to be believed.
Austrian resorts do not generally cover vast areas of mountain with hundreds of chairlifts but are smaller resorts, which gives them a certain charm as you get to know the runs inside out, which can be a lot of fun. A lot of the towns and villages tend to be set in the bottom of the valleys with the slopes high up on the mountains either side, which gives some spectacular scenery. The terrain is varied and offers great off piste with no shortage of tree runs in most of the resorts.
