Downhill and cross-country skiing
Alpine and nordic skiing in the Salzburg region
Salzburg’s motto in the winter is –“hit the slopes!” Located directly in the village of Grödig is the Untersberg ski lift. After just a short ride, you’ll be at the top and you can start down the 7.5 km long trail. There are also several other ski and winter sport regions near Grödig. Not to be missed are short excursions to Gaißau-Hintersee or Bad Dürrnberg with its 1,300 meter high peaks – ideal for novices. If you are skilled on the boards and want things a bit more challenging, then head to the Amadé ski resort. It is Salzburg’s largest ski center and is considered to be one of the best in Europe. These meticulously prepared trails and snow packed slopes make for the perfect skiing adventure. In the evenings, head to the Après Ski lodge and enjoy the atmosphere.
If you prefer lacing up the boots for cross country skiing, there are several trails in Grödig, Salzburg and the surrounding winter sport region. Most of the trails are groomed and marked. If you would like to take a cross country tour, we have that too. Try the snow-covered grounds of the romantic Hellbrunn Palace, or the bit more challenging tour around the popular lakes in the Salzkammergut Lake district – there is something there for every ability. Skiing is wonderful exercise for the body, especially in a place with such beautiful scenery.
