The Ski Resort
Winter sports enthusiasts can explore the Hochkössen ski area, which comprises 22 kilometres of pistes, in the Kaiserwinkel. In one of the snowiest regions of Tyrol, ten kilometres of blue, nine kilometres of red and three kilometres of black marked pistes invite you to ski and snowboard.
Beginners can try out the first tests on the boards in the valley. In the Sunny Kids Park, the kids expect special practice lifts, lots of games and, above all, lots of fun. The Ski School Kössen helps young and old beginners to overcome the initial difficulties. If the beginners are sure to be on skis, you can discover slopes such as the family downhill run (No. 3) or the Horn downhill run (No. 1). For the youngest children, lunchtime supervision is possible.
Advanced skiers can explore various red marked slopes. The downhill slope (No. 2) or the Brandl run (No. 4) promise pure skiing pleasure, because here the skiers and snowboarders can enjoy the wonderful panorama particularly well. With a slalom and giant slalom slope, the Hochkössen ski area also offers ideal training and racing conditions for experts. Freeride fans will find a ski route.
