Don't forget to pre-book and save on airport hotels
Before you head off to Austria from Heathrow for your ski or snowboarding trip, find out where the snow is falling.
Skiinfo.com offers comprehensive snow reports for resorts across the world as well as projected snowfalls, a powder alarm service and the Skiers' Lounge where skiers and snowboarders can exchange news and views.
Austria is currently experiencing heavy snowfall, with resorts including Solden, Lech Zürs, St. Anton am Arlberg and Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang benefitting from huge amounts of fresh powder.
Don't forget that extreme weather conditions can also lead to more accidents on the mountains. Make sure you arrange appropriate winter sports insurance cover when you take to the slopes.
Fly from Heathrow airport to Austria with easyJet and British Airways. Put your feet up before hitting the slopes, and pre-book the night before your flight at the Heathrow Novotel, a comfortable 4-star hotel.
Room at the Heathrow Novotel Hotel with up to eight days holiday parking from £83*
