How about a genuinely royal ski round in Pinzgau? The Königstour combines 35 piste kilometres into one continuous ski round. Conquer six summits and collect 7,500 metres of altitude in total - a fantastic prospect for all enthusiastic skiers. The whole tour is marked with yellow and orange signs.

Fun parks

The perfect playground for youngsters: 4 fun parks (Kings Park, Schönanger Funslope, Beginnerspark and Skicross at the Natrun, as well as Livingroom Hochkeil) will not fail to excite everyone who wants action. Jumps, jibs and other obstacles will offer challenges to young and old freeride artists. Even families with younger children will get their money’s worth. The fun slope at the Schönanger (Aberg) and the Beginnerspark are perfect for beginners.

Sun & ski at the Hochkönig

Follow the sun and draw your lines in the unspoilt powder. Do you already know the local mountain in Maria Alm? Whether beginner or expert: The Natrun is the ideal mountain to warm up on the piste, and the cable car is only a few steps away. This will let you start your ski day right from the hotel Lohningerhof!

Little ski regions

Your ski pass in the ski region Hochkönig or the Ski Amadé ski region will also enable you to ski in two smaller ski regions. The natural ski area Hochkeil is at the Mitterberg in Mühlbach over 1,300 metres above sea level and is endowed with particularly much natural snow due to its high altitude.

Are you looking for an ideal ski region for families? The Hinterreit ski area is for you. Wide and child-friendly slopes, T-bar lifts as well as a beginner’s lift are perfect to practise skiing. Maybe you will even come across a professional athlete as there is also a FIS training run in the Hinterreit ski area.

Freeriding in the powder

Do untouched slopes and endless deep snow runs mean true happiness to you? The Hochkönig ski region will answer this desire. Off the prepared pistes, you will find challenges and a lot of fun. Appropriate safety precautions and sufficient know-how about alpine conditions are, of course, crucial for free riders.
