Grossglockner Resort ski region - East Tyrol

The Grossglockner Resort, the largest skiing area of East Tyrol, can be reached from Matrei in Osttirol and Kals am Grossglockner.

A few years ago, the skiing areas Kals am Grossglockner and Matreier Goldried formed the new Grossglockner Resort, connected with each other by the 2,405 m high Cimaross. The spectacular deep powder snow slopes and the three downhill runs will make you get even more enthusiastic. The two black ski-runs at the Cimaross lift, however, are for sure a unique experience for pros. Also off the slopes this region builds on soft winter sports and offers the possibility to make winter hikes and sled rides, go ice skating and try cross-country skiing.

Some 41.5 km of well groomed ski slopes - which can be completely be covered with artificial snow if necessary - are available. 16 modern lift facilities are available, one of them is the heatable chair lift “Goldried2″, which is by the way the first heatable 6-seater chair lift in East Tyrol. At the Goldried mountain station at an altitude of 2,600 m a.s.l. you can enjoy a fantastic panoramic view of 60 majestic peaks and the Adler Lounge, the highest located gourmet restaurant in Austria!

Two areas of the ski region are dedicated to children: at the mountain station of the cable car, there is a special children’s area with warming room and magic carpet. Another area is available right in the village of Kals on a sunny meadow. What is also worth mentioning are the prices for kids! The ski pass for youngsters 6-18 years is available at half the price, and for children under 6 years skiing is free. By the way: the “Tyrol Snow Card” and the “Ski Hit” pass are valid here.
