Our mountains and regions provide everything for the whole family in terms of fun when skiing. We also do everything we can to ensure you have a relaxed, safe day on the piste. Please play your part and plan your excursion in advance!

You're clearly at an advantage with us! The right piste for everyone.

Absolutely everyone will find the right conditions for a great day on the piste in Lower Austria. Beginners and families feel comfortable in our many family ski resorts and our Free ride spots and fun parks provides that little bit extra for more advanced skiers in a Lower Austrian winter. Furthermore, everything you need such as lift stations, inns or shops are all within walking distance - meaning more time for what makes life more enjoyable: Make elegant turns over freshly prepared pistes, enjoy the winter views when travelling with the chairlift and catch up on plenty of sun in a deck chair in front of the hut.
