Lienzer Bergbahnen skiing area - East Tyrol

The Lienzer Bergbahnen lift facilities transport you with one ticket into two skiing areas: Zettersfeld and Hochstein.

Mt. Hochstein offers perfect conditions for skilled skiers and snowboarders, as most of the slopes are quite challenging, whereas Mt. Zettersfeld is perfect for families. With its wide ski slopes that are secure from avalanches, it has been certified as “Tyrolean family skiing area”. The two skiing areas are not connected - the Zettersfeld lift facilities start in Untergaimberg, the Hochstein lifts from the Castle Hill of Lienz -, but they have formed the Lienzer Bergbahnen skiing area which is accessible with one ski pass only.

The slopes of the Hochstein, the 1,988 m high local mountain of Lienz, are perfect for practicing all disciplines and for this reason many national ski teams come to the area for training purposes. Every two years it is venue for the Women’s Alpine Ski World Cup (slalom and giant slalom), alternating with Mt. Semmering. Moreover the Hochstein offers the Alpine Coaster “Osttirodler”. All-year round you can enjoy rushing down the 2.7 km into the valley!

On Mt. Zettersfeld, 300 metres higher than the Hochstein, there are mostly easy and medium difficult slopes, deep powder snow areas and mogul slopes. The Sunsite Park and the 400 metres long Funslope are a paradise for snowboarders. Kids, however, can look forward to special children’s rates, the “Alpenkasperl” clown, childcare and the Mooswiese Kids’ Area. Adults can relax on the Sun Lounges outside the slopes in the meantime - Mt. Zettersfeld, the “Sun Roof of Lienz”, is perfectly suited to get some rays!
