New to the Freshtracks programme this winter, this trip is an opportunity to experience one of Austria’s best kept secrets. Little known to British skiers and with a name so hard to pronounce you'll think twice before saying it, the phrase ‘small resort, big terrain’ has never been more relevant. With the impressive backdrop of Austria’s highest mountain, the Grossglockner, this beautiful Austrian village is the gateway to some epic freeride terrain.
ON SNOW EXPERIENCE
You’ll be with local mountain guides for six days who’ll showcase the best of the area. You’ll use lifts to gain height then will set out on day tours most days – unless you hit a full week of powder.
The ski area itself has 12 lifts and 55km of pistes plus a freeride arena comprising 1,500 hectares. Split into six freeride sectors the area offers multiple opportunities including four marked routes. On a powder day, this is where you'll spend most of your time. The resort is also the starting point of many high alpine ski tours to 3,000m summits. The area has a wild feel, and there is a good variety of terrain to challenge advanced and expert off piste skiers.
Back at the hotel you'll find wellness facilities plus excellent food served by friendly hosts.
