Im planning to go to Salzburg (Austria) by plane, to ski. How are the connections between the ski runs and the airport or the city?

I've edited your question assuming that by Salisburg you mean Salzburg. If you mean a different place, please specify more precisely where it is. – gerrit Nov 17 '12 at 18:08

Yes. It is easy and you have several options. From the Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart Airpot, you can easily reach ski resorts located in the Salzburger Land or even in Tyrol. There are busses. You also have tthe possibility to take a taxi or shuttle. Eventually, you can rent a car.

As an example, Faistenau and the Fuschlsee are only a 30 minutes car drive from Salzburg. This means that you can easily reach it in an hour by bus. The big resorts, such as Kaprun / Zell am See or the Skicircus can be reached by a shuttle in roughly 90 minutes from Salzburg airport.

If you intend to stay only a couple of days, like an extended weekend, Faistenau can be a good choice. It's cozy and the ski resort is big enough. And it is not too far from the aiprort.

If you want to check distances and travel time, you can use goolge maps. That will give you a good estimate. Details for busses and shuttles are available via the airport's website, by using the links given above.

Ok, and how far they are on average? I mean, can I easily reach a ski run in a hour by train/bus from the airport ? – Patrick Nov 18 '12 at 8:12
