The Ski Resort
The Austrian ski resort Bergeralm is located near Steinach am Brenner. On the 30 kilometres of alpine slopes winter sports enthusiasts of all levels can feel at home. Ten kilometres of the ski area are marked as blue slopes, ten kilometres are of medium difficulty and nine kilometres are black slopes. With quite a lot of medium and difficult slopes, the Bergeralm is very suitable for advanced skiers. For beginners it is more complicated, because the nine kilometres of blue marked pistes are located in the upper part of the ski area and a red run has to be mastered for the downhill run to the base station. For experts there is also a mogul slope.
With eight lifts, the winter sports enthusiasts can be brought comfortably and safely up to 2,200 metres and enjoy perfectly groomed descents and the breathtaking Wipptal panorama. About 90 percent of the slopes can be covered with artificial snow, which is why snow reliability can be guaranteed on the Bergeralm from the end of November to the beginning of April. The ultimate "night-ride-feeling" can be experienced by winter sports enthusiasts skiing at night on nine illuminated kilometres of slopes.
In the Ski-Kinderland the little ones can master their first ski and snowboard attempts together with other kids. Professional teachers from the three local ski schools support the little ones and teach them the ABC of winter sports. Directly behind the "Hoher Turm Bergeralm" double chairlift, the children's ski slope, a magic carpet and a ski carousel await little beginners. Once the first descents are mastered and the kids have their skis safely under control, it's time for the children's ski cross track in the ski area. And in Noah's Kids Funpark the little freestylers can practice the coolest tricks on various jumps, rails, boxes and corners and prove their skills.
At the Nösslachjoch freeride fans can hover over the snow and experience a feeling of weightlessness trying Snowkiting.

The Bärenfalle Restaurant, one of the most popular mountain restaurants, welcomes its guests with a spacious sun and lake terrace overlooking the Steinboden reservoir. Here, too, typical Tyrolean cosiness is lived and traditional dishes are served. Winter hikers and cross-country skiers can use the Nösslachhütte for a short break.
Most Difficult Runs

The illuminated toboggan run next to the Bergeralm invites you to a fun toboggan run. Over a distance of five kilometres, the rapid toboggan ride takes you over snow-covered paths and through illuminated toboggan tunnels back down to the valley. An absolute highlight for young and old. Cross-country skiing enthusiasts can glide through the snow-covered winter landscape on a ten-kilometre-long high-altitude cross-country trail, which offers fascinating views of the Wipptal mountains. In addition to a classic trail, there is also a skating and hiking track. The evening also ends nicely with ice skating or relaxing in the indoor pool.
