The best taste from Austria's Mountains
TASTE Ski amadé
Tempting culinary delights
Local, seasonal, sustainable and high-quality: Ski amadé has written all this on its culinary banner. Exquisite initiatives are the tasty result – from the Ski and Wine Enjoyment partner ski huts to the Enjoyment Ski routes and the Highest Farmer's Market in the Alps. The focus is clearly on local products from local producers.
Whether it's a rustic hut or a modern mountain restaurant, farmhouse bread still warm from the oven with alpine butter or a fine curd strudel with a fluffy filling: at the various culinary stations, every stop becomes a unique experience. Warm hospitality and a distinguished service concept are at the top of the menu.
Ski & Wine Enjoyment
For many years the most tasteful highlight of the winter season: the Ski and Wine Enjoyment Week from the 11th to the 18th of March, 2023.
Every year, 26 hotels put together special culinary packages and the ski resorts in the five regions invite you to a culinary summit meeting around the theme of "skiing and Austrian wine enjoyment".

The Highest farmer's market in the Alps
As part of the Ski and Wine Enjoyment Week, the Highest Farmers' Market in the Alps promises outstanding taste experiences. Since 2015, skiers in the five regions in Ski amadé have been moving from one market stall to the next for one week in March. Whether cheese, schnapps, jams or tea: directly at the ski huts, local farmers and producers offer their delicacies from their own production for tasting and buying – just like at a classic farmers' market, only high up in the mountains.
Tip: Visit the highest of all farmers' market stalls at the Kreuzkogel in Sportgastein at 2,700 metres above sea level – the highest point in all of Ski amadé.

The cuisine of Ski amadé
Local and regional
Regional products taste better and are more sustainable than imported foods that were transported across long distances. Based on this philosophy, Ski amadé makes use of its natural circumstances. Where skiers whoosh down the slopes in winter, cows graze on wild herbs and grass in summer. Cheese is made from the fresh and nutritious milk and is later on used in traditional dishes at the huts. A culinary cycle that works perfectly. Especially because people appreciate seasonal and traditional foods from the region.
Local and regional: a promising combination, which is lived year-round in Ski amadé.
