The Ski Resort

The Großglockner Resort is a family-friendly ski area in Tyrol with 37 kilometres of runs. The resort is well worth a visit for the breath-taking panoramic views alone – you can marvel at no less than sixty peaks measuring over 3,000 metres! The entry points to the ski area are Kals and Matrei. However, if you are keen to ski on the Großglockner then Kals is probably the best option. The Figollift and Blauspitzlift take skiers up to the Blauspitze (2575 m), the closest peak to Austria’s highest mountain (3798 m). This part of the ski area is particularly attractive for advanced skiers, and trail no. 17 stands out thanks to its varied terrain. This trail has both a red and black-marked route.

There are also several practice lifts for beginners in Kals, making it an ideal base for taking your first steps in the world of winter sports. In addition, the Matrei side of the resort features a whole host of blue-marked runs (most notably nos. 2 and 10) which are suitable for all the family. There is also a children’s area with magic carpet lifts and a heated recreation room at the mountain station of the Landen I lift.

Advanced skiers will enjoy the varied terrain offered by the groomers down from the Cimaross, Happeck and Goldried lifts, with the two black-marked trails down from the Cimaross Lift firm favourites among experts.

Activities

In addition to fun on the slopes, the beautiful landscape in Eastern Tyrol is ideal for long winter walks. There are some excellent paths in the area, such as on the Glocknerstraße from Kals via the Ködnitz Valley to the Lucknerhaus or along the Kalserbach to Lana and Pradell. The region’s sled runs are also firm favourites with families. And if you don’t mind walking up to the starting point on foot, the 3.9-kilometre Bodenalm sled run is well worth a visit.
