The Ski Resort
In the ski area Hochlecken in Salzkammergut there is something for all demands. The small but fine ski area between lake Traunsee and lake Attersee is perfect for beginners as well as advanced skiers. While the kids take their first turns in the kids area and at the baby lift, advanced skiers enjoy a well-groomed choice of slopes. A small funpark also provides variety. From Wednesday to Saturday the slopes are illuminated from 17 to 21 o'clock with LED floodlights for night skiing.
The ski school offers group and private lessons for beginners, but also for those who want to perfect their turns. The Skiliftstüberl invites you to take a break. Here you can strengthen yourself in a cosy atmosphere with fresh food and hot drinks for the rest of your skiing day.
