Skiing amid the summits of the 3000 metre mountains

Whether alpine skiing or freeriding – the main thing outdoors and the highest peaks in the country always in view. When the air for cutting is cold and the days are dominated by the two most beautiful colors of winter – white and blue – then you are on a skiing holiday in the Hohe Tauern ski region.

A bitter cold winter day announces itself. The night is still raging in the valley, only the highest peaks are covered with the first rays of sun and they dip in orange light. The Grossglockner/Heiligenblut ski area comes to life early and prepares you for another day of skiing with fresh snow and perfect conditions.

You are still in the warm and enjoy a hearty breakfast in your accommodation. Your eyes will drop out of the window and eliminate any doubt: this ski day is one of many reasons why you love skiing so much. Low temperatures, blue skies, fresh powder snow – that’s what you’ve been dreaming about for the last few months!

Quality comes before size

The ski area Grossglockner/Heiligenblut is not just extensive, it also exhibits quality. There are 12 state-of-the-art lift facilities which take you up to 55 kilometres of pistes, where plenty of natural snow and the best piste conditions await. This is particularly in evidence on the 4 ski routes which require technical skiing ability away from the tracked piste areas.

The valley station in Heiligenblut is accessible on foot from your accommodation in Heiligenblut; from the villages in the surrounding area you can use the free ski bus. Hop aboard and within a few minutes you will be at the summit of the Schareck at over 2500m altitude. From there you can enjoy the views across the entire ski area and the majestic Hohe Tauern, with the 3798m Großglockner leading the way.

Freeride hotspot for go-getters

So, you are not one of the downhill demons, performance carvers or alpine lodge ‘sitters’, but prefer to look for that “first line” and the best powder that there is to be had on the south side of the Alps? The ski area is divided up into 6 freeride sectors and the 4 ski routes are exactly what you and your powder skis are looking for.

On an area spanning 1500 hectares there is plenty of space for skiing, which means the whole gamut of freeride sport is at your feet. At the Freeride check point at the intermediate station, familiarise yourself with the conditions before heading over to the highlight of the freeride area, the ski route to wonderful Fleißtal – a sensational ski run!

Especially for children

In Heiligenblut Snowland awaits little ones, with the magic carpet. The ski school there provides supervision for those first practice sessions on skis. The training area, with platter lift, is for those who are a bit more ambitious; while up in the ski area the mogul run is very popular.

The ‘Snowman ticket’ is available for EUR 4.- per day, for children up to the age of 10 (born 2010 and after) when an adult card is purchased at the same time. Families with several children will be particularly delighted that this lift ticket is free after the 3rd child, when tickets for 2 adults and the first 2 children in the family are purchased at the same time.

We take you right up to the top by cable car. “They say you are at above 3000m altitude there and enjoy the best views” – and they are right. Stepping out of the cable car we are overwhelmed, our gaze drawn to the loveliest and the highest 3000 metre summits in the Hohe Tauern.

 

But we are not just here to enjoy the view. We want to have the most exciting and longest ski pistes in Carinthia beneath our skis. Great snow conditions are standard at this altitude. What is it to be? An FIS piste, the longest downhill ski piste or a guided freeride tour?

The best snow, right through the year.

The Mölltal Glacier is Carinthia’s only glacier ski area and spans an altitude of between 1200m and 3122m. The highest point is at the summit of the Schareck and is accessible via the Gletscherjet chairlift. Arrive, pause for thought, enjoy. The views to the neighbouring Hoher Sonnblick and to the Großglockner are sensational.

 

And then you can get going. 17 pistes in varying difficulty levels open up a glacier ski area which is top class. With very well-tended natural snow, it is alluring throughout the year. Away from the pistes there are over 6 km of different ski runs that await, with THE freeride highlight to neighbouring Salzburger Sportgastein leading the way.

 

Kids think it’s great

Families are very welcome in Flattach and on the Mölltal Glacier too. The snow adventure land close to the town has a ski lift and a magic carpet, and floodlit facilities. Children don’t just get to let off steam on skis, there is the ‘Zipfelbob’ snow glider, toboggans and sleds too. Twice a week (WED and FRI) night-time skiing is available.
The beginners’ area for the glacier ski school, and their expert team of instructors, is on the glacier.
On the Mölltal Glacier children up to the age of 6 (D.O.B. 2014) travel free of charge and those up to the age of 18 (D.O.B. 2001) can use the children’s card. Families also get to enjoy big family discounts, with a ski pass free from the 3rd child.

Powder paradise with views into the distance.

Sounds like an assured declaration, yet it is no lie. The Ankogel/Mallnitz ski area is a genuine insider tip for powder snow. High above Mallnitz, it is a “gem of the Alps”, between 1300m and 1650m altitude, a ski sport hotspot opens up, with 12 pistes and 5 lifts. PSSST: make sure it stays an insider tip!

The Ankogel is one of the loveliest and sun-blessed ski areas in the Alps. The ski runs are not just lovely, they are performance-oriented too. On the longest ski run in Carinthia spanning 1700 metres altitude, the thighs of even true pros burn. On guided freeride tours you get to dive right into the powder snow paradise that is the Ankogel!

The children’s offer at the Ankogel

The children’s and beginner’s area is in Mallnitz, right at the valley station for the Ankogelbahn.
Both Köfele lifts are ideal ascent aids for beginner skiers. Children at the ski school are really delighted when Bobo, the ski school mascot, pops up as a surprise visitor during the course and demonstrates his expertise on short boards.

Children up to the age of 6 (D.O.B. 2014) enjoy free travel in Mallnitz, while for children and teenagers up to the age of 18 (D.O.B. 2001) there is a children’s tariff. For larger families a ski pass is provided free of charge from the 3rd child, when 2 adult and 2 children’s ski passes are purchased at the same time. This offer applies throughout the season.

The southernmost ski resort in the region is the Emberger Alm in the Drautal: a small, fine family ski area at an altitude between 1,650-2,150 meters. 3 ski lifts and 2 practice lifts as well as ski rental and ski school on site guarantee an uncomplicated start to the winter ski holiday. The slopes are wide and not very demanding and therefore suitable for beginners. The lift tickets are among the cheapest in the whole of Carinthia and for larger families, the third child rides free.

A snowmaking system ensures the best slope conditions, even if you can enjoy many hours of sunshine due to the location. Those who prefer to live in the valley can take advantage of a free ski bus service.

Enjoy a carefree family ski holiday on the Emberger Alm in the Drau Valley!
