Surrounded by Wildkogel Arena ski area

Pinzgau is a well known part of the valley where winters are real. Alongside the Wildkogel is a so called “Schneeloch”. Due to the presence of the Hohe Tauern with a lot of peaks above 3000 meter, a lot of snow falls every year. On top of that the temperature will sink to minus 20 degrees Celsius on a regular basis. On average it is 5 degrees Celsius colder than in other valleys, as a result of which the trees alongside the river are covered by frozen fog, which will look like a fairy tale.

In December 2010 a new lift was taken into use. So guests are transported directly into the ski-arena. Lot of free parking places are available.

Cross country skiing is very well provided for. The 200km long Pinzgau loipe, from Krimml to Zell am See, goes through the valley. From the middle station of the Panoramabahn (Hollersbach) a lot of loipes at the Hochmoor (1200 metres) are ready to use. From here you will have a marvellous view to the mountain peaks. For lessons in cross country skiing or tours we recommend Mrs. Martina Millgrammer. This professional teaches starters in a variety of cross country styles and knows the local mountain area by heart.
