Ski area Hochkössen

With the "Alpen Plus Holiday Card" you have access to a total of 141 km of piste and 74 lifts (see ski region). Hochkössen, Walchsee am Zahmer Kaiser, as well as the Hocheck in the Bavarian Overaudorf already provide for 43 km of skiable terrain.

The ski area of Hochkössen is Hausberg von Kössen, where you can expect to find 11 lifts and 22 km of piste. The family-friendly ski area has up to an approx. 1,750 m altitude, and due to its geographical location on the northern brim of the Alps, the region is known as one of the most snow-reliable ski areas in Tyrol and boasts great conditions from mid December until the beginning of April. Additional snow canons ensure the valley run is open as long as possible. From Kössen you take the modern 6-person gondola up to the "Bärenhütte". Whilst beginners can enjoy the sunny high plateau, more experienced skiers can dare a go on the "black" valley descent. Great deep powder snow areas, all secured, are to be found at the Unterbergalm and partly also along the valley run.

In the neighbouring resort Walchsee lies 13 km of piste on the slopes of the Zahmen Kaiser, of which are all connected with 7 lifts. Especially families will appreciate the smoothly sloped, wide-set pistes in front of the scenery of the Kaiser mountains. A large portion of the pistes are marked as blue, whereby black pistes will not be found at all. Littler guests will be supervised in the children's area by the resort's ski school, where magic carpets, Native American tepees, snow tunnels, and mogul runs pose fun challenges for younger skiers.

Finally, the access point to the 4-person chair lift "Hocheck-Express," in the neighbouring area of Oberaudorf, brings you to the Hocheck ski area. Here, you can expect to find a further 8 km of runs (including ski routes to Bad Trißl). Night owls in particular will get their money's worth when riding along the main slopes with one of the longest illuminated runs in Germany, of which stays lit four days a week until 9:00 p.m. Other diverse offers available besides the lit pistes include a Funpark, a 3km long toboggan run, and high snow-security. Moreover, a modern practice area is ready to be tested out by all skiing newcomers.
