  1. I think Austria is a great destination for winter sports. I was in Kitzbuhel, in late February, two years ago, and i had a lot of fun. There are a lot of hotels for all pockets, restaurants, markets, but the most important is that there are a huge variety of slopes, all served by a recently upgraded infrastructure of lifts and gondolas. I am still impressed!
