Sunshine skiing at Easter

Irrestible offers for the winter final

According to the motto 'Saving the best till last', the winter in SalzburgerLand goes full steam ahead to the ' Grand Finale' at Easter, and shows its very best and most enjoyable side. What could be more beautiful than skiing across deep snow-covered slopes in the sunshine, feeling the warm wind on your skin, and getting the first taste of the season with lunch on the terrace of our mountain huts? Special package offers, top events, living traditions and guaranteed snow ensure that an Easter holiday in the SalzburgerLand Mountains is an unforgettable experience.

When the days get longer, the sun noticeably gains strength and even the birds slowly return home, then spring is in the air and the Sunshine skiing in SalzburgerLand is approaching. This is a time that is characterised not only by the re-awakening of nature, but is also especially suitable for enjoyable skiing. Still perfectly prepared slopes and guaranteed snow until after Easter ensure that this time enjoys particular popularity among skiers.

No wonder, when you think of the glorious mornings where you glide across the slopes, the midday hours spent relaxing in the sun at one of the huts and the early evenings, where you can enjoy the already mild temperatures down in the valley to the fullest. Because one thing is clear – Easter in the SalzburgerLand Mountains takes you to the sunny side of life, and not just in the proverbial sense.

Easter Traditions in SalzburgerLand

Whoever thinks that life at Easter mainly takes place on the slopes and in the ski huts has not reckoned with the people here in SalzburgerLand and their extremely living traditions. Some traditions are ancient pagan customs and sometimes there are ancestral fertility rituals and high church holidays. All these festivals and celebrations in SalzburgerLand always offer however the chance to dress-up and live the high life among the people.

Especially around Easter, many of these traditions are popular among not only us locals, but also provide great variety for our guests. Some of these popular traditions are the Palm Bush binding, the Palm procession with the Palm donkey ride, Mount of Olives singing, and colouring and then cracking the Easter Eggs. The Lungau Easter fires, which brighten the sky and are visible from far off in the night of Easter Saturday into Easter Sunday, are especially spectacular and date back to the pre-Christian period. They are an expression of joy at the birth of the Lord, and the desire for the re-awakening of nature.
