Ski area Hochkönig

The lift pass "Ski amadé" gives you access to a jaw-dropping 760 km of piste and 270 lifts (see ski region). In other words, one single lift pass allows you to use the piste in the regions "Salzburger Sportwelt", "Schladming-Dachstein", "Gastein", "Hochkönig" and "Großarltal". You will definitely get your money’s worth here!

The local ski area of Maria Alm, "Hochkönig" (2, 941 m), is particularly well-known for its guarantee of snow. And if the snow does not fall as expected then snow machines, snow cannons, piste equipments and snow-making pond will make sure you have undisturbed skiing fun. 120 km of well-prepared pistes and 36 modern lifts are available at the child-friendly ski area. The hardest piste is the 1 km long Hochmaist descent. However, there are more challenging slopes at Aberg-Langeck (1, 900 m), but beginners get to join in the fun here, too. The piste at the Simmer lift is lit several times per week so you can stay in your boots for some night skiing. The snow park at Aberg with tables, slides and jumps is perfect for freestyle fans. Furthermore, the place offers some good freeriding opportunities. There is a ski bus that runs between the individual areas and which is free to all lift pass bearers.

The Königstour in the Hochkönig ski area is a beautiful ski route - and one of the longest in the Alps. The total length of 32 km can be explored in only one day, making it an ideal day excursion for the whole family. Since 2012, the Königstour connects the ski areas of Mühlbach, Dienten and Maria Alm. The Königstour was voted the winner of the best ski circuit 2014 by the website - the largest testing portal for ski areas worldwide.
