The high plateau offers a total of 6 kilometres of tracks for both skating and classic-style skiing. You can also opt to just park your car, step right into your ski boots and let the two T-bar lifts, the button lift and the ‘magic carpet’ for the little ones do the rest. Those who are still slightly shaky on their skis or snowboard might consider knocking on the door of the Gesäuse Ski School, the only one in the region. Rentals are also available.
Alternatively you can simply go for a walk through the beautiful winter scenery or get a sledge, take the one-hour walk to Klinkehütte Lodge, which is open all year long, and start your sledge ride from there (rentals also available directly at the lodge). If you decide for the latter, the adrenalin is sure to soon be flowing through your veins. The other option is to go ski touring – the parking lot is the perfect starting point for doing so.
After wearing yourself out you can treat yourself to some regional delicacies at the Sportalm mountain restaurant, which also opens in winter. Don’t miss this perfect place for relaxing and recharging your batteries – no matter if you visit in summer or winter.
