Do you want to ski elsewhere in Carinthia for a day? You can do this at the following ski resorts:
The Turracher Höhe ski area is located on the border between Carinthia and Styria. The most striking thing about this area is the fact that it is a frozen mountain lake. The Turracher Höhe offers quite a bit of variety on the generally wide slopes. Most of the slopes are red but not too difficult. This ski area is about an hour's drive from our guest house.
Ski resort Nassfeld is a beautiful, modern and well-maintained ski area that extends from 1300 to 2000 meters. The area offers 100 kilometers of slopes. It is about an hour and 15 minutes drive to this ski area.
Mölltal Glacier. This is not a large ski area, but varied. There is a good balance between blue, red and black runs. All descents are above the tree line. The travel time to the Mölltal Glacier is approximately one hour.
