Austrian Ski Resort Opening Dates 2024

Looking to find out when ski resort are due to open in Austria this coming season? You've come to the right place :)

With the majority of Austrian ski resorts opening up around October, it really is time to get your skis out of storage and scrape off that summer wax coat. You can finally stop dreaming about your next ski break and turn it into reality. Austria is home to numerous resorts featuring a glacier, so October is usually the month when the highest elevation areas start spinning lifts for visitors once again.

After the loftier Austrian resorts have opened, November and December opening dates are the norm - so by this time in two months, we'll see 99% of Austrian ski resorts open for business. This is of course weather dependent, so keep an eye out on the upcoming snow forecasts to see how things are looking.

Check out the table below to see when the top Austrian ski resorts will be ready for the upcoming ski season. You might also be tempted to get some very early season skiing or snowboarding in, so check to see if any resorts are open already!
