The backbone of our map consists of contour lines at intervals of 200 meters. Thus, the map looks vivid and nicely illustrates the topography of the Alps. In addition to the borders of the nine Austrian states, the map displays the most important roads and rivers, as well as cities and mountains as reference points.
This map displays all ski resorts in Austria. The graphical boundaries of the resorts are limited by the outer ski lifts or slopes. Ski areas with a combined slope length of less than five kilometers are marked with a dot on the map.
We define a ski resort as all connected slopes and lifts that can be reached on skis. If, for example, a bus is necessary to get to another lift, we count two resorts. When different ski areas are linked to a defined region, e.g. the Zugspitz Arena, we note this in brackets behind the areas' names.
Our goal is to combine a harmonious design with relevant information.
For this we are allowed to use the data from skiresort.info, the largest database for ski resorts in the world. Classified by the level of difficulty we can show blue, red, and black slope kilometers, and the maximum and minimum height for each ski resort.
All data has been checked and updated in October 2017.
16 of Austria's most characteristic mountains, which we also offer as poster prints are illustrated on the map:
Bischofsmütze, Grimming, Großes Wiesbachhorn, Grossglockner, Hochkönig, Hochvogel, Hoher Dachstein, Kitzsteinhorn, Piz Buin, Schneeberg, Serles, Spitzkofel, Traunstein, Wilder Kaiser, Wildspitze, Zuckerhütl.
Infographics for the whole of Austria and its nine states show the relation of total area, number of inhabitants, number of ski resorts, and slope kilometers.
Number of ski resorts, divided by slope length.
