Hochkar ski area

Ski area / lift


Snow guaranteed & family friendly

It is not for nothing that the Hochkar is regarded as the most snow-sure and highest situated alpine centre in Eastern Austria, as it lies at 1,300 to 1,800 m above Göstling/Ybbs. Every winter, 19 kilometres of pistes and 9 lifts attract numerous winter sports enthusiasts to the "Kar". But children also feel at home on the Hochkar: they can make their first inexpensive attempts on skis with the Snowman Card in the Kinderland.

"Freestyle Mecca" of the Eastern Alps

The Hochkar is very popular among freeride fans and backcountry junkies: whether "Karwand" or "Leckerplan": All powder fans can really let off steam on the Hochkar - without having to hike for a long time. Even experienced high-carat riders will always discover new elements (rocks, trees, etc.) that can be used as backcountry kickers.
