It’s that time of year again when the jury is out as the votes stack up for the World Ski Awards. The public votes close on Friday September 22, so please go follow the links below and vote! Remember hospitality industry and journalist votes count five times the wait of any other vote. The competition, now in its fifth year, celebrates the very best of the international ski industry. Bramble Ski and Haute Montagne have more nominations than ever before and are incredibly proud to have such broad representation. Over the next two weeks, we’ll give you a closer look at the various categories in which we feature, kicking off today with Austria’s Best Ski Chalet, where we have three exceptional chalets represented: Überhaus, Chalet 1597, and Chalet Maria Schnee.
The exceptional Überhaus has been nominated Austria’s Best Ski Chalet in the World Ski Awards for the past two years. And as the 2017 World Ski Awards draws ever nearer, we’re hoping to make this year a hat-trick. We’ll need your help with this.
Chalet 1597 has taken the crown in previous ceremonies, and has been nominated again this year, alongside Chalet Maria Schnee in St. Anton. Below, we take a closer look at the Austrian ski chalet nominees for this year.
ÜberhHaus is two-time previous winner of this prestigious award. Perched proudly on the side of the piste in the sought-after Oberlech enclave, you will find a ski chalet to rival all other chalets in the region. Überhaus is a prestigious luxury residence, four floors of pure indulgence, and one of Lech’s finest architectural feats.
Überhaus is all about relaxation and wellbeing; a private spa, complete with sauna, hammam and massage room, as well as fitness and entertainment areas are just some of the standout features.
Sumptuous suites and bedrooms offer ten adults and four children the chance to sleep in pure comfort every night. Its elevated on-piste location ensures panoramic views of the mountains, and a stunning outdoor hot tub allows guests to relax their aching muscles after a long day on the slopes.

Originally built in – yes, you guessed it! – 1597, this incredible chalet has been lovingly refurbished with no attention to detail spared. One of the finest chalets in Lech, this enchanting property is designed with comfort and luxury in mind. Antique pieces, indulgent furnishings and fabrics, and traditional features come together to create a chic yet dramatic alpine home.
The chalet sleeps 12 people in five bedrooms – perfect for large families or groups of friends. Relax on the terrace and enjoy breathtaking views of the surrounding peaks, take in the latest blockbuster in the private cinema room, or explore the chalet’s traditional stone cave wine cellar.
Chalet 1597 has previously won the award of Austria’s Best Ski Chalet.
