This week we will be bringing you a special series from contributor Carolyn Banfalvi on the most luxe Alpine hotels in Austria. If you ever fancied a "Sound of Music" getaway, here's how to do it without taking the Vow of Poverty. Any questions or suggestions? Let us know.
The financial crisis rocking the world certainly wasn’t visibly affecting Austria’s ritzy Alpine ski resorts last month, where the snow is deep, the après ski scene is just as vital as the skiing itself, and the luxury hotels seem to be doing brisk business.
Austrians start learning to ski almost as soon as they can walk, which can make skiing in the Alps intimidating for the less-proficient. While each town/resort has a different feel and attracts a different sort of visitor, even non-skiers will love the Alps, especially if they’re holed-up in one of the area’s slew of gorgeous hotels.
