Crystal Ski Holidays Reveals the Best Value Lift Passes


Austria Mountain Destinations Come Out on Top

According to a guest survey, Austrian mountain destinations are ahead of other alpine holiday regions when it comes to customer satisfaction with summer offers.

This is the conclusion of market research from the  company “Mountain Management Consulting” in cooperation with the University of Innsbruck.

In the summer of 2021, almost 40,000 guests in the leading mountain destinations in the Alps were surveyed.

The Austrian mountain destinations score particularly well in the areas of friendliness, bike offers, offers for children and families, accommodation, hiking trails, wellness offers and gastronomy.

The results underline the trend towards year-round destinations

“It is striking that in contrast to the surveys in winter, where Swiss or Italian ski areas tend to be at the top, in the last summer study 2021 Austrian areas were ahead in terms of guest satisfaction,” said the author of the study, Mike Partel.

” We see this as confirmation that the continuous expansion of the summer offer and investments in the quality of offers and services in Austrian mountain destinations are bearing fruit.

“This also underscores the current trend in the direction of development towards year-round destinations.”
