Sun Terrace winter holiday in Salzburg Country

Winter fun with sun guarantee

Even in winter, you can enjoy many hours of sunshine on the Salzburg Sun Terrace. When the snowflakes are not dancing from the sky, the clouds open and let through warming rays. Skiing, cross-country skiing, winter hiking and tobogganing in the best weather in one of the most beautiful holiday regions in the country: your winter holiday in Salzburg Country can come! Of course, we love to tell you what awaits you on the snowy sun terrace and how you can get a little closer to the sky.

Salzburger Sun Terrace Ski Area

Small but oho: The first point of contact for your cosy, family-run skiing holiday in Pongau are the lifts of the Salzburg Sun Terrace. Away from the hustle and bustle of a huge ski area, you can expect several downhill runs, which are especially suitable for beginners and families with children. In total, you can expect more than ten kilometres of excellently groomed slopes, four lifts and a baby lift. Here you can take the first steps on the boards, which for many mean the world.

Other ski resorts in Salzburg Country

Did you know that the Salzburg Sun Terrace is the gateway to one of the largest winter sports areas in Europe? Ski amadé inspires with an incredible 760 km of ski slopes and 270 lifts throughout The Salzburg Country and neighbouring Styria. Visit the state-of-the-art ski area St. Johann-Alpendorf with numerous snow and fun parks, take a detour to the Hochkönig with three highly varied winter sports resorts at the summit of feelings or wag over the World Cup track in Flachau, where Hermann Meier once made his first turns. There are no limits to your imagination!

Winter and snowshoe hiking

Winter on the Salzburg Sun Terrace, but that also means silence, cosiness and nature enjoyment. The perfect combination of snow and sun invites you to enjoy winter hiking in Salzburg Country. More than 100 km of excellently groomed and cleared paths connect the three resorts of the holiday region. The sun terrace bus takes you to the starting point of your favourite hike in no time. Let yourself be enchanted by the magnificent panorama between the mountain and the valley and round off your excursion with a stop in the warm parlour. A hot cup of tea is already waiting. As a winter hiking alternative, we recommend a snowshoe hike. Equipped with snowshoes, you can reach even more remote spots and be rewarded with fantastic views. Snowshoes can be rented from the Tourist Board. Here you can also arrange guided snowshoe hikes for your winter holiday in Salzburg Country.

Cross-country skiing on well-groomed trails

Hardly any other sport burns as many calories per hour as cross-country skiing. With the right training plan, you will feel much easier. Cross-country skiing in Pongau also frees your head and helps you to see things more clearly, gain new perspectives and free yourself from everyday stresses. On the Salzburg Sun Terrace you can expect 47 km of cross-country trails, of which 30 km are specially sprinted for skating. Beginners and connoisseurs are recommended our round-trip trail. It is only 1 km long and also illuminated – ideal for a slightly different view of the holiday region. With a cross-country ski course you will find yourself on these two thin boards in no time – by the way also suitable for experienced, sporty cross-country skiers with professional ambitions.

Sporty and relaxed, the fitness centre in St. Veit and the thermal baths in the nearby Gastein Valley are all about sports.
