Carinthia's biggest area, on the sunny side of the Alps, on the Italian border. Nassfeld itself and Sonnleiten are a mid-mountain lift bases, with lodging. You can also stay in the valley village of Tröpolach, at the bottom of the access gondola, or in Hermagor, 10km to the east. A two-stage gondola takes you up directly to the centre of the slopes at Madritsche (1920m). There are nursery slopes here and at the mid-station. Lifts serve slopes below Trogkofel and the higher peak of Gartnerkofel (2195m). There are four six-packs, but still quite a few drags. Most slopes are classified red, and the few blues are short. But there are black pistes and ski routes too. There's a terrain park, twin-pipe and snowcross. There are 80km cross-country trails and quite a range of other activities.
