If you want your lodgings to be just steps from the slopes, Lackenhof on snow-covered Ötscher is just the place for you. Families in particular love this car-free vacation.

Ötscher, the “Father Mountain” of the Mostviertel, has much to offer in winter, too. Novice downhill and cross-country skiers become pros in Lackenhof while the youngsters rave about the magic carpet and the lineup of activities for kids.

Enjoying winter to the fullest
At the base of Ötscher, families and winter athletes will find a friendly and pleasantly compact alpine village that lets them enjoy their vacation to the fullest on the slopes and off. Rental skis and two ski schools are available to beginning skiers and aspiring pros.

A taste of the slopes
Ötscher is one of the most reliable ski resorts in the eastern Alps in terms of snow cover and delights visitors with its 19 km of runs of all difficulty levels, a racing course, 9 lifts and the Sunny Kids Park and Snow Park.

Family tip: Lackenhof-Ötscher and Göstling Hochkar combi ticket. These two ski resorts clearly disprove that skiing with children is very expensive. Children aged 10 and under (year of birth: 2010) pay just €4 a day – but they must be accompanied by at least one parent.

Beyond the slopes
The Lackenhof area has 30 km of cross country skiing trails (22.5 km for skating) just waiting to be explored. The pace is quieter on extensive snowshoe hikes, for which there are two marked tours in Lackenhof, and on magical horse-drawn sleigh rides. Animal enthusiasts will want to check out the unique llama hikes!
