Small but spacious hamlet between Styria and Carinthia, bypassed by the Tauern motorway. High, sunny slopes in two areas, Aineck and Tschanek - linked by ski bridge and piste across town. On the others side of Aineck runs go down to the cute hamlet of St Margareten im Lungau. Lifts back up from here include a modern eight-seat gondola. But coming from Katschberg involves a long triple chair. This area has longer, mostly red runs and a couple of blacks, while the slopes above Tschanek are shorter - also suited to intermediates best. There's lodging in the resort or in the valley at Rennweg, served by free bus.
