Would you like to spend a day skiing somewhere else in Carinthia? This is possible at the following ski areas:
Turracher Höhe ski area is located on the border of Carinthia and Styria. The most striking thing about this area is the fact that it lies around a frozen mountain lake. The Turracher Höhe offers quite some variety on the generally wide slopes. Most of the slopes are red but not too difficult. From our pension this ski area is about an hour's drive.
Ski area Nassfeld is a beautiful, modern and well cared for ski area that stretches from 1300 to 2000 meters. The area offers 100 kilometers of slopes. It takes about one hour and 15 minutes to drive to this ski resort.
Molltal Glacier. This is not a large ski area, but it is varied. There is a good ratio of blue, red and black runs. All runs are located above the tree line. The travel time to the Mölltaler Glacier is about one hour.
