Our own small downhill runs are ideal for beginners, children and families and all those who are not looking for the event of the big ski temples.

Skiing on the Salzburg sun terrace without the hustle and bustle for young and old.

With its 32. 5 km of downhill runs, the Raurisertal ski area is somewhat smaller, but by no means to be despised. The winter sports region, which has received several awards in recent years, has similarly high-class transport facilities and relies on its charming down-to-earth location at up to 2,175 m above sea level. Families enjoy the peace and quiet on flat pistes, powder snow skiers plunge into the open terrain and the view of the mountain ranges of the Hohe Tauern National Park is always inspiring. Around the children’s ski schools, fun tobogganing action awaits adventurers of all ages.
