Three Country Leisure Arena

The impressive Three Country Leisure Arena ski resort (formerly Schneewinkel) stretches between North Tyrol, Salzburg and Bavaria.

The Three Country Leisure Arena (Drei Länder Freizeit-Arena, in German), known until 2017 as Schneewinkel, includes eight skiing areas, five of them in North Tyrol, two in the region of Salzburg and one in Bavaria. Via one ski pass only you can access 171 km of perfectly groomed slopes and 61 lift facilities. The facts are impressive: 55% of the slopes can be covered with artificial snow by 485 snow cannons, 8 reservoirs provide the necessary water, 34 ski huts invite to stop and relax.

The ski resort includes the North Tyrolean skiing areas Steinplatte with Winklmoosalm on the Bavarian side, Buchensteinwand, SkiStar St. Johann in Tirol, the Lärchenhof-Lifte skiing area and the small family skiing area of Kirchdorf. In addition, there are the two Salzburg skiing areas Almenwelt Lofer in the Saalachtal valley as well as Heutal in Unken.

In all respects the Three Country Arena attracts a large number of winter sports enthusiasts. It offers a range of special offers for children in the kids’ parks such as the “Triassi Kinderland” in Waidring, the Bobo Kids Park in the Buchensteinwand skiing area or “Valle’s World” with the snowman Valle in St. Johann in Tirol. In addition, there are 10 ski schools and four Snowparks such as the QPark in St. Johann in Tirol and the Snow Park Steinplatte. A real ski eldorado!
