Additional information for winter.
Please note that due to our altitude location (1269m and 1500m)
in the winter a great deal of snow can lie in the towns. Snow clearing work is done on a regular basis so access roads are rarely closed. However, during your stay heavy snowfall can occur within a very short space of time.
Please note that the relevant winter equipment is required at all times! In Austria winter the use of winter tyres is compulsory from 1. November to 15. April.It is also recommended that you bringsnow chains with you so you are well-equipped. (These are available to purchase at garages and at many petrol stations!)
