Winter...

Winter... well winter is on the whole pretty obvious, although we do have some fun and interesting surprises here.

Lets start with the obvious. Skiing and snowboarding! Yes we have lots. What do you fancy? Generally quiet slopes, good runs, snow sure, off piste, good lifts, nice and non expensive mountain resturants, good views and generally good weather? Yep got that, what else?

             


But seriously here in the Lungau we have an interesting set-up made up of 4 main resorts all easily accessible in less than 10 minutes by car, minibus or the local ski bus service which stops right out side the Chalet. Click on the big map above or link buttons below to take you to the resort overview page for a short description and links to each seperate resort.

The way the mountain ranges converge and the wind direction mean this area has a fairly unique weather system. Which in winter, basically boils down to the fact we get snow from both the west and the south, so while other resorts suffer we have a far better chance of having good snow. The seasons we have been here for have been great for snow whilst other areas suffered greatly. If all else fails, all the mountain resorts are covered by a fantastic and efficent snow cannon network to guarantee you get out on the slopes.

As far as ski passes are concered there are loads of choices! Individual resort passes for those starting out or when one lovely area is enough. A point-system pass for those wanting just to go up a lift or gondola for the view. Then we have three big area passes. The Lungau card covers everywhere EXCEPT Obertauern, (which is about 25 minutes away from us) The Lungo card which covers ALL Lungao Valley area. Lastly there is the Salzburg Super Ski card which covers a huge area covering ALL Salzburger region (including the Lungau) ski areas! Check out the links below for some idea of prices. It can get a little confusing so just ask us and we will do our best to help.


There are 3 resorts on our doorstep, Katschberg-Aineck, Grosseck-Speiereck and Fanningberg, all are extremly family friendly with great, experienced and fun ski schools. Some have seperate training slopes so no speed-demons hurtling through the class and its easy to build your experience or confidence in a group or private lesson. Most ski schools have a kindergarten service taking kids from the age of 3 upwards. So parents can get some 'you' time skiing or some 'you' time sitting in the mountain huts having a gl├╝hwein or in the wellness spa's. Well you get the idea. Escape!!!
