Sillian Hochpustertal Ski Center - East Tyrol

Skiing in the Hochpustertal valley - the skiing area on Mt. Thurntaler is considered a paradise for winter sports enthusiasts

It is considered to have the most beautiful cross-country ski slopes and ski tours of the southern Alps - we are talking about Mt. Thurntaler, the local mountain of the Hochpustertal valley on Austrian side, which continues in Italy as Upper Val Pusteria. Here, on the southern side of the High Tauern, also 22.5 km of ski slopes are waiting for you, including the Kammabfahrt, which overcomes a drop of 1,300 metres. It represents the longest ski run of the area. The lifts start on the outskirts of Sillian and are comfortably reachable with the Hochpustertal ski bus service.

The valley runs stretch to Sillian and to the Villgratental valley: The Hochpustertal Ski School helps you with the right technique in order to enjoy the slopes to the fullest. Famous is also the Snow Park Sillian, the southernmost snow park of Austria with own snowmaking equipment at 2,200 m a.s.l. It features a wave run, skicross, snail and tunnel, easy kickers and medium roller. During the school holidays, special two-day or four-day Freestyle and Freeride Camps are held here.

Families can look forwards to the children's areal, the kids park with the mascot BOBO, the penguin, and the ski kindergarten. The child-friendly rates include free skiing for kids up to 6 years if accompanied by an adult, and children's fares up to 18 years. The 7 km long Leckfeldalm toboggan run on the opposite side of the valley, horse-drawn sledge rides and the Pustertal Loipe Sillian-Lienz cross-country ski track complete the winter offer in the charming East Tyrolan town.
