The Ski Resort
The Zinkenlifte are located at Dürrnberg near Hallein. A chair lift and three drag lifts transport the guests to the 8 kilometres of slopes.
Beginners exercise on the Dürrnberg drag lift, which takes winter sports enthusiasts to 935 metres above sea level. Return to the valley station on a blue marked slope. A longer descent, also marked blue, offers the route from the Rotten lift (the car park is above the Dürrnberg drag lift). Kids get assistance with the first turns in the snow from the Ski school Meisl and can use the ski school lift.
Advanced skiers ride with the Zinken double chairlift up to the Zinkenstüberl at 1,330 m altitude. From there, there are two red marked slopes for downhill skiing. If you don't want to land in the valley again, use the upper Zinkenlift. Sporty skiers dare to descend the only run marked in black (0.5 km) from the Zinkenstüberl. After a short distance of 500 metres, this leads to a red marked slope towards the valley or to the upper Zinkenlift.
- The vertical drop from summit to base is 1411 ft. The average difference in altitude between base and summit of Ski Resorts in Austria is 2359 ft. Runs and slopes are therefore relatively short. The highest point of the track is 4265 ft above sea level.
- The day pass at Hallein Dürrnberg is €28.20 making it one of the 5 cheapest ski Resorts in Salzburg.
- Snow coverage is usually best during February, offering an average snow depth of 23 " at summit elevation and 18 " at the base.
- Hallein Dürrnberg features 26 sunny days on average per season. The average for all ski Resorts in Austria is 30 sunny days. January is the sunniest month with an average of 15 sunny days.
Snow Safety & Snowmaking
On Mountain Dining
At the top station there is the tine bar . Here hungry skiers are provided with Austrian delicacies such as Hüttenknödel and Wienerschnitzel in a rustic atmosphere.
After skiing, the winter landscape at Dürrnberg can be explored on numerous hiking trails.
A trip to Salzburg, the city of Mozart, should not be missed either. After about half an hour you reach the Austrian capital. There you can visit the Hohensalzburg Fortress, from where you can enjoy a wonderful view.
Who would rather give himself up to relaxation after a day on the slopes, can visit one of the thermal baths and spas nearby. These are the Watzmanntherme Berchtesgaden as well as the Rupertus Therme in Bad Reichenhall.
