The Ski Resort
The Fageralm is the ideal ski resort for families and less advanced skiers and snowboarders with blue and red marked slopes only. A total of eleven downhill runs and seven lifts are available for winter sports enthusiasts.
From Forstau you take the chair lifts Forstaubahn and Jägerlift to Unterbergalm. From there you continue with the Vorderfager T-bar lifts and over the blue marked Mitterfager descent to the Hinterfager T-bar lift, which brings you to the highest point of the ski area at 1.885 meters altitude. From there, after having enjoyed the view, you can either take the red marked Hinterfager descent or the blue marked hut descent to the base station of the Hinterfager T-bar.
Then you continue with the Mitterfager T-bar lift to the top station of the Vorderfager T-bar lifts. From there you can either take the blue marked Forderfager I or the blue marked Forderfager II slope further down to the Unterbergalm.
The valley can then be reached via two downhill runs, the red Jägerlift run, which branches off at the Heideggalm into the Forstau run, or the Jägerlift ski trail, which branches off at the Heideggalm into the blue run towards the valley. For snowboarders there is a Boardercross track on the Fageralm. It runs from the top station of the Vorderfager drag lift to the base station of the Hinterfager T-bar. Next to the boardercross track, the Speedy shooting track is also waiting for particularly fast riders.
A Kinderland awaits kids at the base station in Forstau. Here the local ski school teaches the kids their first turns on two boards.
On Mountain Dining
Breaks can be made, for example, in the Lechneralm, above the top station of the Jägerlift chairlift. Here you can enjoy regional delicacies in the rustic hut or on the cosy terrace.
Another stop is the Trinkeralm, which is located along the hut descent. Here, too, you will find home-style cuisine. In addition, the après-ski bar lures with one or the other drink.
One highlight is the Atomic test track, which runs from the highest point of the ski area at 1,885 meters along the Hinterfager T-bar lift. Here new models and material techniques of the popular ski manufacturer are tested.
The Schladming Dachstein region has a lot to offer guests away from the pistes. For example, you can use the idyllic winter hiking trails, or take a snowshoe or ski tour.
For young and old the 7 km long toboggan run on the Hochwurzen or the 5 km long toboggan run on the Galsterberg offer the possibility to go sledging during the day as well as after dark. Also popular is the snowtubing track on the Reiteralm.
