Katschberg Ski Resort
Katschberg is a small, friendly resort with snowsure, tree-lined runs.
There's 70km of slopes in the Katschberg ski area, located on the Aineck and Tschaneck Mountains, either side of the Katschberg Pass. Most of the slopes are tree-lined, making this a great resort for bad weather and with 100% snowmaking coverage, the resort guarantees good snow cover throughout the season. With most of them rated red and black, this isn't a resort for beginners, but confident intermediates upwards will love the terrain, especially after fresh snow. Access is quick thanks to a good, modern lift system.
The village itself is relatively small and its location at 1641m means you're at a snowsure altitude. There's also the option of staying at the other end of the ski area at St Margarethen im Lungnau, a pretty valley town with access via gondola to the main slopes. Off the slopes there's some good winter walking routes and a toboggan trail. Getting here is quick and easy, with the route from Salzburg taking less than an hour and a half.
