While Au-Schoppernau's Diedamskopf ski area has just 40km of pistes, the there is as much as 215km if you include the nearby ski areas at Daműls-Mellau and Warth-Schröcken, which are within a 20km radius of Au-Schoppernau and easily reached by car or free ski bus.
There's downhill skiing to suit all ability levels as well as good opportunities for ski touring, cross-country skiing winter-walking and other activities including paragliding in Diedamskopf. Compared to bigger better known ski resorts, the main draw back for families with teenagers and some adults is the relative lack of apres ski.
There's plenty of good accommodation to choose from including affordable 4-star hotels, 3-star hotels and private apartments. Hotel Krone in Au deserves special mention for its splendid spa and wellness area and the Gasthof Adler in Schoppernau is among the best hotels in the region.
