St. Wolfgang im Salzkammergut is a market town in central Austria, in the Salzkammergut region of Upper Austria, named after Saint Wolfgang of Regensburg. This town is located on the northern shore of the Wolfgangsee lake (close to the towns of Strobl and St. Gilgen, both in the State of Salzburg) at the foot of the Schafberg Mountain. It is famous for the White Horse Inn (Hotel Weißes Rössl), the setting of the musical comedy and for its pilgrimage church with a late Gothic altarpiece by Michael Pacher. A destination spa, St. Wolfgang is also a popular skiing resort during the winter. A rack railway, the Schafbergbahn runs up the mountain in this scenic resort town. The Postalm is a family ski area with trails between 1200 and 1900m above sea level. A new quad chairlift was recently installed, giving an extra bit of speed and comfort to the area which previously just had T Bars. There are some 17km (11 miles) of trails predominantly easy blues making this an ideal spot for first timers to learn in a beautiful, unpressurised environment with a friendly ski school. For complete beginners here are in fact nursery slopes at Puchberg right by St Wolfgang but these may not had adequate snow cover due to the low altitude early and late in the season. Intermediate and advanced skiers may enjoy whizzing around the slopes for a few days but are likely to want to take advantage of the Dachstein West area pass which includes half a dozen ski areas in the region adding up to 140km (87 miles) of trails between them. The largest is at Gosau which boasts some 50km (31 miles) of runs up to five Kilometres long and more challenging terrain than the Postalm. It is an hour's ski bus ride away however.
