The Ultimate Family Ski Resort
Just about a 20 minute drive away of Bad Reichenhall, and thus conveniently situated for German day-trippers, one of Austria’s most family-friendly ski resorts calls itself at home. With 46 km of skiable runs, Almenwelt Lofer is rather one of the small but mighty ski areas in the Austrian Alps, however it delights with various customized offers especially for families and beginners and it sweeps the board of the snow-online.com awards. Several kids zones directly located next to the gondola lift mountain station, a sheltered magic carpet as well as local ski schools facilitate a worry-free, comfortable stay. The numerous long, wide blue runs are perfect for beginner skiers and are groomed with artificial snow for guaranteed uninterrupted winter fun.
The possibilities for expert and intermediate skiers as well as addicts of freestyle are comparatively slight. Unfortunately, provided black runs for adrenaline junkies are just few in number, and the two small terrain parks do not provide too much variety as well. Freeriders are well served with the black run no. 12 as well as perfect powder covered slopes. However, the ski resort scores with well-dispersed mountain huts and restaurants with sun decks and breathtaking panoramic views of the Alps.
