Ski area Großglockner Resort Kals-Matrei

The “SkiHit” lift pass gains you access to eight ski area in East Tyrol with a total of 358 km of piste in the 8 regions of Großglockner Resort, Brunnalm/Defereggental, Sillian/Hochpustertal, Kartitsch, Lienz, Obertilliach, Mölltal Glacier, as well as Ankogel (see ski region). Through the connection of Matrei's and Kals' ski areas, the Großglockner Resort (933 - 2,422 m) was created and with 37 km of piste and 17 lifts is East Tyrol’s largest ski area. The originally 110 km of pistes have shrunk to 37 km because of the recalculation of pistes according to the fall line. The pistes itself did, of course, not change.

Countless diverse runs are ideal for beginners and those more ambitious skiers, offering unlimited and snow sure fun. The Goldried gondola starts at Matrei and leads to the ski area, moreover the 6-person Cimaross lift transports winter sports fans up to an altitude of 2,422 m.

A children's ski park is located directly at the mountain station, which has a magic carpet and a cosy warm hut. Snowboarders will just love the two snow parks with slides and jumps. Natural snow and efficient snow machines make the ski area one of the most snow sure in the Alps.

Those who have a lot of energy should not miss the 11 km long run "Goldried" to Matrei. Pros will find challenging, black pistes at the Cimaross down to Matrei and the Blauspitz near Kals. The "Bichl" tow lifts and the 3 km beginners pistes that are ideal for the first moves in the snow are located in Prägraten.
