Ski area Hochkönig

With the ski pass "Ski amadé" you will have the possibility to carve down an unbelievable 760 km of piste, just to be taken back up the hill again by one of 270 lifts (see ski region). No winter sports fans will miss out on a thing, thanks to the interconnected ski area offering deep powder slopes, family-friendly pistes and FIS-routes en masse.

However also the ski area around the Hochkönig (impressive 2,941 m) wins skiers over with it's 120 kilometres of well-prepared, wide pistes (incl. ski routes) and a spectacular panoramic view. This area is suitable for children, beginners and experts, as it offers a broad variety of pistes. The majority is made up by moderately difficult routes. A special highlight for all less-experienced winter sports fans is the 9 km long Dachegg-Mühlbach piste, which is easy to handle. The eastern descent from Mühlbach, at 3.5 km length, is known to be the most difficult in the Hochkönig area. The piste at the Simmer lift in Maria Alm is lit several times per week and invites you to ski at night. Furthermore,in the region of the Hochkönig 3 different snow parks are opened to all the freestylers with various difficulties of rails, boxes and jumps.

With the Königstour, the ski region of Hochkönig also offers a wonderful ski tour - one of the longest in the Alps. The total of 32 kilometres of piste can be explored in a day, and is thereby optimal for family day trips. Since 2012, the Königstour connects the ski areas of Mühlbach and Dienten and Maria Alm.
