Ski area Gerlitzen

High above Lake Ossiach, just under 42 kilometres diverse pistes and 11 natural ski routes on all different levels of difficulty await you with the "Gerlitzen" lift pass. Beginners and pros alike will enjoy the broad, sun-soaked slopes in snow-sure Gerlitzen! From November to April, snow-making facilities provide snow safety and the highest piste quality in all directions. This ski area in the heart of Carinthia is especially loved among families with children thanks to its soft and perfectly prepared slopes, and was therefore awarded the "Welcome Beginners" seal of approval.

The little skiers will find the best conditions to practise around the midway station, and are well cared for in the "Kinder- und Schneebärenland". Beginners can calmly try out their swings in the snow on mostly easy to intermediate slopes. More advanced skiers will get their money's worth on the valley run "Klösterle", which is 6 km long and on which you have to conquer about 911 m in altitude. On the Wörthersee-piste that runs from the Gerlitzen summit at 2,000 m at a length of 1 km, winter sports fans have a wonderful view on the surrounding mountain landscape. The challenging "Gegendtaler" slope has a length of 1.7 km and is a true insider's tip for pros. Free riders and snow boarders can let off steam on natural tracks and deep snow runs. For kids, there's a little snow park at the "Kanzelbahn" middle station.

Another must-see on the Gerlitzen: the "Stella Ronda", a 360° star-ski tour that takes you through the ski area on a length 35 kilometres of piste.
