Damuls-Mellau Ski Resort

Damuls-Mellau is a family-friendly ski area above two villages, Damuls and Mellau, offering good value accommodation including ski-in, ski-out hotels and good skiing for all ability levels. Best for intermediates who will enjoy the wide, well-groomed slopes and easy off-piste skiing between the marked runs.

Damuls-Mellau is best for families, couples and mixed ability groups, rather than 18-30 year olds and late night party goers. Guests come mostly from Switzerland, Germany, France and Benelux, and increasingly from the UK.

Getting there is easy in less than two hours from either Zurich or Menningen airports, making it a convenient ski destination for weekend skiing and it's possible to ski the same day as you fly.

Originally separate, the two ski areas were connected in 2009 by a new high speed 8-person gondola, and the area has skiing from 2000m down to 690m.

Situated on the south side of the ski area at an altitude of 1431m, Damuls is a small village built around a pretty church and is one of the most snow sure villages in Austria. Mellau, which is the bigger of the two villages, is situated on the opposite side of the ski area at a lower altitude of 690m above sea level and about 20km from Damuls. There's accommodation to suit all budgets including ski-in, ski-out hotels at Damuls.

Other ski areas nearby include Au-Schoppernau (Diedamskopf) and Warth-Schröcken, which are covered by the same Bregenzerwald lift pass and easily reached using the free ski bus. Together, Damuls-Mellau, Au-Schoppernau (Diedamskopf) and Warth-Schröcken have around 200km of well groomed piste skiing. Warth-Schröcken also has direct lift access to the huge Arlberg ski area that also includes Lech-Zurs and St Anton.
