Northeast of Innsbruck and east of Jenbach, the Alpbachtal ski area has 54 pistes totalling 110km that are served by 21 lifts accessing 900m of vertical. The small Ski Juwel Alpbachtal Wildschönau arena is known for it's intermediate snowboarding. But although small, there is some excellent off-piste freeriding, such as Ski Route 1 leading to Achenwirt and then you can head into the glades on the way to Ski Route 5 heading down to InnerAlpbach. Further afield, you can hire a guide to access the powder, such as on the Kohlgrube route. Keep in mind that many of the ungroomed ski routes are not on the piste map.
The Ski Juwel Alpbachtal Wildschönau lifts interconnect the region around Alpbach with Inneralpbach and Auffach. In addition, there are bus interconnects with two other lift systems on the ski pass including Reith im Alpbachtal and Niederau.
After a morning of snowboarding, look for the on-mountain lunch options including the Gipfo Hutte and the Berggasthaus Horndboden. For some apres ski action, try The Halle in the Boeglerhof and the Jakober. For nightlife, check out the Post Alm and the Waschkuchl. For an unique dinner, head to the Gasthof Rossmoss, where you can sledge your way back down into town afterwards.
To reach the snowboarding at Alpbach, take the train to the Brixlegg train station. Then, catch the local bus to Alpbach. While the town is charming and is a popular lodging option, a ski bus is required to get to the lifts.
PRO TIP: There are lift ticket options for days at either the SkiWelt region to the east or the Zillertal region to the west.
Overall, Alpbachtal is the 31st most popular snowboard & freeride destination of all 75 snowboarding resorts in Austria.
