How we began

Ski Alpbach (originally known as Billy’s Buro ) was formd 50 years ago by Major Billy Patterson

I met Billy a few years later and together we continued to develop the business.

Although Billy died in 1991, I still live in Alpbach and run the business to the present day now with the help of Marion, who moved to Alpbach with her husband 6 years ago.

Most of our guests return to Alpbach year after year, which must say something of our personal service - enjoyable from both sides.


Alpbach is the most wonderful village. I have been a visitor since I was a child and now return with my own children every year. Dinny’s Ski Alpbach always looks after us so well, providing us with excellent accommodation and reduced ski and lift passes. Winter or summer, Alpbach has something for everyone, recharging the spirits ready for the highs and lows of everyday life. Thankyou Dinny and Ski Alpbach for so many wonderful holidays!

Our office this year will again be in Sepp’s Ski School which is in the centre of the village. Through our long relationship with all departments in the village we can offer our guests great prices and discounts on lift passes, ski hire and both private and class ski lessons.
