Ski area Schneewinkel

The lift pass "Schneewinkel" grants you access to a total of approx. 110 km of piste and 53 lifts: besides the ski lifts Kirchdorf, St. Johann in Tirol, Erpfendorf/Lärchenhof and Pillersee - Buchensteinwand you can also use Waidring-Steinplatte and the Winklmoosalm by Reit im Winkl, which belongs to the same lift system, on the German side.

Directly in resort, the Kirchdorf lift takes you to 5 km of family-friendly pistes. From there, it's only a few metres to the lifts in the ski area of St. Johann in Tirol - Oberndorf, of which lies between the famous Kitzbühel Horn and the Wilder Kaiser. Through the favourable northern position, the pistes are still quite snow-secure even in early spring. The 43 km of piste in St. Johann (incl. Eichendorf and Oberndorf) take you to altitudes between 659 - 1,604 m and are easily reached with 20 lifts. A modern cabin lift brings you in two segments swiftly up to the peak of Harschbichl. Families and beginners in particular will get their money's worth thanks to the predominantly beginner-to-novice level pistes. However, practised skiers will also find the ski area to their liking with features such as the black 3.5 km long Sauregg FIS run from Penzing to Oberndorf or the demanding freeride area at Stangalm and Kröpfalm. For snowboards, the snowpark "Woodside," with a quarter pipe and half pipe can be found at the Eichenhof lifts. Pros should definitely be there for the Woodside Opening!

For the ski season of 2016/17, the "Salzburger Super Ski Card" and the "Kitzbüheler Alpen AllStarCard" have formed a new union and offer a sheer unbelievable result: The Super Ski Card with 2,794 km of piste and 925 lifts all covering 2 federal states and 6 counties. With 3 glaciers - the Kitzsteinhorn, the Dachstein and Mölltal Glacier - this ultra lift pass provides for 199 days of skiing fun and a maximum reliability of snow coverage. The 25 ski regions include such areas as Ski Juwel Alpbachtal Wildschönau, Salzburger Sportwelt, Skicircus Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn, the Skiwelt Wilder Kaiser – Brixental, Kitzbühel – Kirchberg, St. Johann in Tirol – Oberndorf, Steinplatte Waidring – Winklmoos, Ski amadé or the Zillertalarena. A real MUST for ever winter sports crack!
