Last Minute Ski Holidays in St Wolfgang - Excellent Ski School
The Postalm ski area is perfect for beginners as all the runs are predominantly blues to keep you occupied on your last minute ski holiday in Austria. There are also some nursery slopes in Puchberg, right beside St Wolfgang to learn the basics on before taking either the T Bar or quad-chair lifts up the slopes to try a descent. This really is an ideal place for beginners as the slopes are not crowded and the cheap ski holiday ski-school is excellent so you can learn in a relaxed and unpressurised environment.

This cheap ski holiday pass enables use of the free ski bus service and free run over the 140 km of exciting and challenging piste that awaits you in the neighbouring ski holiday resorts. The largest of the local resorts is Gosau which has over 50 km of runs which vary in dificulty and some are up to 5 km long.
Snowboarding is limited on the Postalm, although the new quad chair is a better way to get up the slopes than the T Bars. Thanks to a good local snow school its not a bad place to learn boarding however.
Those in search of more park life should probably head further afield however. Gosau, an hour away on the ski bus, offers a park complete with half pipe.
No visit to St Wolfgang is complete without a drink (or possibly a meal or indeed an overnight stay) in The White Horse Inn, made famous by the Benatsky and Stolz operetta. Indeed the resort organises a regular operetta evening for you to enjoy the full effect.
If you just fancy a traditional après scene however, the Kap Horn and Kraftstoff Bars are both usually popular. The Tanzlokal Kellerstüberl is the village disco.
Other apres activities can include skating on the frozen lake, traditional bowling, sleigh rides and snowshoe walks. Weekly trips are organised to the casino in Salzburg.
In resort St Wolfgang has indoor bowling and, when frozen, ice skating, curling and hot air balloon rides from the Lake.
Horse Drawn Sleigh Rides around the Wolfgangsee are also popular as are winter hikes and snowshoe tours.
Many of the hotels have extensive wellness and leisure facilities such as the indoor - outdoor heated pool at the White Horse Inn. There's also indoor tennis, libraries and a museum.
The "Activity Centre" on the Postalm offers the latest snow-sport trends for both skiers and non-skiers alike. These include snowbiking, with special courses available including "Fun to learn" workshops and "Snowbike fat-burning days" for weight reduction or " bum tum, and thigh sessions." The 7kg Snowbike is controlled through balance like a bike and the lightweight frame makes it very easy to handle (according to the Activity Centre). There's also a toboggan runs on the Postalm.
Excursions to nearby Salzburg are organised regularly.
A mecca for lovers of traditional Austrian mountain cuisine, there are more than 30 places to eat in the resort.
The Alpenrestaurant 'Zur Lore' on Schwarzenbach is typical, offering "authentic specialties of the Region." The Hotel Post, Zimmerbrau and Cortisen are all also good.
Although most serve traditional Austrian meals there are a few exceptions, such as Mirabella-Café on Pilgerstrasse which specialises in Italian, as does the Rudolfshohe.
If you just fancy an ice cream there are two ice cream parlours in the village and a good collection of cafes for cake and coffee.
