6 excellent Restaurants to have Lunch on the Slopes of Austria

To me one of the best parts of being on the slopes is, that joyful moment when you kick off your ski’s to go for lunch. I love these endless lunches, high up in the mountains, preferably sitting outside in the winter sun. It may sound a bit crazy, but the level of cuisine and service on the slopes is definitely something I keep in mind, when deciding where to go for a ski trip. Don’t settle for uninspired, soulless, self-service restaurants. It takes away so much of that lovely, traditional ski-vibe. Make sure to enjoy it to the fullest and choose the ones, where they waiter your table in Tracht and serve delicious homemade dishes, mostly based on family recipes. That’s the way you want it to be. Agree? Check the ones on my list, for sure they will give you that typical Austrian feeling!
