The family winterland Mitterdorf is located in the small village Mitterfirmiansreut in the middle of the three-country-corner. Around the Almberg (1139 m) there are five kilometres of slopes. The two kilometres of blue pistes and the 2.5 kilometres of medium difficulty pistes are particularly suitable for families. But there is also a black marked downhill run. A total of ten lifts take winter sports enthusiasts up to 1,139 metres in altitude.

The Mitterdorf ski centre can provide artificial snow for almost all slopes, which is why winter sports enthusiasts expect perfectly groomed slopes and constant, good snow conditions. From Christmas to March Mitterdorf can be called snow-sure. Thanks to a floodlight system, skiing is possible on a slope even after dusk.

In the Junior Ski Circus at the valley station of the Almwiesen lift, the youngest children will find the ideal area for their first turns in the snow. The little skiers can expect three magic carpets for easy transport to the practice hill and a ski carousel. The professional instructors of the three ski schools help them and teach them the right technique on the screened area. The ski area also offers all-day childcare.

Four huts and mountain restaurants around the Almberg invite you to take a short break in between:

The Gasthof Pension-Alpe is located at the Almwiesen downhill run at 1,122 metres and has a large sun terrace. The Almbergütte is also located at the Almwiesen exit, 100 metres below the summit cross. Particularly popular here are the curry sausage and imaginative hut drinks. A small snack is available at the Bergwachthütte. Winter sports enthusiasts who bring their own food can eat it in the self-catering warming room at the central cash desk.
