Altitude Comedy Festival

Altitude Comedy Festival is the world's No.1 alpine comedy festival. Ski or snowboard all day and laugh all night!


We offer a truly unique comedy event, which fuses the adrenaline rush of a ski holiday with the madcap thrills of a top-notch comedy festival.

Altitude Comedy Festival takes place in the chocolate box surroundings of Mayrhofen, Austria, one of Europe’s most beautiful (and fun!) ski resorts. A festival is only as good as its setting and we are blessed with stunning alpine peaks, panoramic snow covered plateaus, fragrant pine forests, 200 year old traditionally-built wooden barns… And a nightclub made entirely from snow! With Hundreds of Kilometre’s of pistes, Austria’s steepest piste, a 3286m glacier AND an award-winning terrain park, Altitude offers pure powdery perfection!

We welcome comedy fans and people interested in winter sports to join in the shenanigans!

Nominated for 4 UK Festival including ‘BEST OVERSEAS FESTIVAL 2019′
and 4 European Festival Awards, this is an Alpine festival like no other.

What the press say about Altitude Comedy Festival…
“There can be few nicer places to watch comedy than at the Altitude festival” Daily Telegraph
“Even if you’re useless at it [Skiing or Snowboarding], it’s still worth it for the après” Guardian
It is not often you get to see an O2 Arena-filling act in a 100-capacity bar, so this was the kind of thing that made the festival special.’ Evening Standard
“SKIING, comedy, music. Not a bad combination, in anyone’s book. Hence, the fun had at Altitude Festival this year was – by my maths – at least three times better than any mountain break previously taken”. The Sun
