For the first time ever, gourmet-skiing routes have been developed in five regions in Austria. Based on regional culinary traditions, they are designed to highlight the specialities of each region. The suggested routes combine leisurely skiing with getting to know both the ski resorts and the local cuisine.
The regions are Salzburg Sportwelt, Schladming-Dachstein, Gastein, Grossarital and Hochkonig.
From 16 to 23 March 2019, more than 20 hotels will be offering packages geared towards the theme of skiing and wine. For the whole week, wine tastings will be offered in the hotels and at the ski and wine huts. A special highlight will be the Highest Farmers’ Market in the Alps where farmers and producers will service their products directly at market stalls found in the ski huts. Just like a true farmers’ market in the valley, skiers will be able to purchase cheese, ham, sausages and schnapps directly from the producers as well as jams, honey and tea.
Numerous gourmet programmes had been grouped under the overall heading Taste Ski Amandé in the past. Now, along the new routes, guests will be able to discover a selection of 22 certified ski and wine huts offering a wide range of top-quality Austrian wines and regional delicacies. These huts can be recognised by a badge of certification at the entrance, one similar to the Austrian Wine Marketing Board logo. They offer a range of Austrian wines not only by the bottle but also by the glass.
