It is considered to have the most beautiful cross-country ski slopes and ski tours of the southern Alps: we are talking about the Thurntaler, the local mountain of the Hochpustertal valley in East Tyrol. The local lift facilities take you into the ski center Hochpustertal at Sillian, where 22 km ski slopes make skiing real fun. One of the slopes is the Kammabfahrt trail, which overcomes a drop of 1,300 m, representing the longest ski run of the skiing area. The valley runs stretch to Sillian and the Villgratental valley.
There are also offers for kids: up to 6 years they ski for free, if accompanied by an adult, and since the winter season 2013/14 kids between 6 and 18 years get reduced prices of 50%. The “Bobo Kinderland” is likewise popular with the little ones. Famous is also the yellowsnow Park, the southernmost snow park of Austria. Located at the mountain station of the gondola cable-way at 2,130 m asl, it’s been a highlight for snowboarders and free skiers for more than 10 years now.
The special freestyle and free-ride camps are well-known, taking place in Christmas holidays, semester breaks and Easter break. In two-day or four-day camps, professionals are going to give you advice. Seeking a nice change? Then we recommend you a horse-drawn sleigh ride or an afternoon on the toboggan run in the ski center.
