In the heart of the Alps, Austria's Tirol boasts rugged mountains that rise to more than ten thousand feet and overlook green meadows and shaded woodlands. Many different skiing resorts in the Alps are well known throughout the world and attract tourists from almost everywhere. The skiing areas are very well organized, offering all sorts of transportation and many valleys are connected to one another. It is not rare that you start skiing in one valley in the morning and end the day in a totally different one. Some areas offer so many lifts and tracks, that even after a week you have not seen them all. Towns like Kitzbühel, St.Anton and Zurs are meeting points for high society and party areas.
