Carinthia is a great winter sports destination
There are no waiting times at the ski lifts and the area offers wide slopes for the whole family. While skiing you have a beautiful view of the Ossiachersee, Villach, Karawanken Mountains and the Slovenian Triglav Mountains. From December 1 to Easter, the presence of snow cannons makes it possible to ski well.
With a 12-minute drive you are at the Klösterle ski lift. From there you take the lift to the Gerlitzen ski area with 60 kilometers of slopes. Bad Kleinkirchheim with 103 kilometers of slopes is a 25-minute drive away. Both areas offer plenty of opportunities for every winter sports enthusiast!
In addition to alpine skiing, you can also go cross-country skiing through the breathtaking nature of the Nockberge mountains. Furthermore, Afritz am See offers sledding, snowshoe hikes and ice skating on Afritzersee.
Would you like to ski elsewhere in Carinthia for a day? This is possible at the following ski areas:
The 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 is located around a frozen mountain lake. The Turracher Höhe offers quite a bit of variety on the generally wide slopes. Most of the runs are red but not too difficult. This ski area is about an hour's drive from our pension.
Ski Resort Nassfeld is a beautiful, modern and well-maintained ski area that extends from 1300 to 2000 meters altitude. The area offers 100 kilometers of slopes. It is about an hour and 15 minutes drive to this ski area.
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 above the tree line. The travel time to the Mölltaler Gletscher is approximately one hour.
