News from Salzburg’s Ski Regions

Dear Winter, show me your highlights!

Year after year Salzburg's winter sports regions invest in innovative services in order to offer the guests varied, high-quality winter sports pleasure. Also this winter, new lifts, cable cars and ski slopes ensure an even more comfortable skiing pleasure. Our restaurants and hotels are looking forward to spoiling you again this winter season.

With its many large and small ski areas, SalzburgerLand is a true winter sports paradise. This is proven by the Super Ski Card’s 2,750 km of slopes in the whole of SalzburgerLand and beyond.

Comfortable cable car and lift services in the ski areas

New Flying Mozart gondola lift at Snow Space Salzburg

The new Flying Mozart Lift overcomes the 970 metres of altitude up the Grießenkareck in less than 11 minutes and transport up to 4,000 guests per hour uphill (currently 2,500 people). This gondola lift, from the Doppelmayr company, is thus one of the most powerful mono-cable gondola lifts in the world. In the future, this means that longer waiting times at the valley or middle station will definitely be a thing of the past.

New 6-seater chairlift “Mooslehenbahn” in Filzmoos

Filzmoos with its approximately twenty kilometres of slopes is considered a small, fine and extremely popular family ski area and has already receieved awards in this category. Here, too, substantial investments were made in a new facility in the summer of 2021. The “Mooslehenbahn” on the sunny side of the valley was replaced by a modern 6-seater chairlift. The focus was on comfort and safety, and the chairlift is equipped with child-proof brackets and a weather protection hood. Filzmoos is the home of former ski racer Michaela Kirchgasser, and the FIS race track named after her on the Filzmooser Großberg is a popular training hotspot for slalom and giant slalom.

Comfort and experience on Salzburg’s ski mountains

Alpin Card Navigator

The new “Alpin Card Navigator” orientation App enables a visual and audio-based navigation for the entire Alpin Card region and thus creates a better orientation in the three ski areas of Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn, Schmittenhöhe in Zell am See and Kitzsteinhorn Kaprun.

New hosts in SalzburgerLand

Family Hotel Tante Frida, Maria Alm

The Hotel Tante Frida is a tribute to all little and big children. With its colourful world of experiences inside and outside, an open house is created with plenty of space for imagination, lively togetherness, real encounters and for the inspiring feeling that everything is possible. Children are taken seriously here with playfulness, while also adulthood is allowed to go on holiday. That’s why Aunt Frida’s house is not a family hotel in the classic sense, but rather a fabulously crazy house with many favourite places, surprises, extraordinary design refinements and interactive experiences. At the same time, there are retreats and quiet areas to deliver real relaxation in addition to the active moments.
