As an editor at Snow-Online I turned my hobby into my profession. Since September 2016 I have been in charge of the content. The mountains have always fascinated me. In winter, you can meet me in the ski areas not only on the downhill slopes, but also on the cross-country trails.

The Ski Resort

The Mölltaler glacier is the only glacier ski area in Kärnten and it is one of the few resorts where seasons start super early. Thanks to the natural snow of the glacier and the many snow making facilities snow is guaranteed on all 17 slopes throughout the season. The six blue, eight red and three black marked slopes extend themselves up to a height of 3.122 meters (10243 ft). In addition you have a wonderful mountain panorama with more than 30 three thousand meter high mountains in the National Park Hohe Tauern.

From the tranquil village of Flattach you can reach the intermediate station in eight minutes by taking the underground cableway Mölltal-Express. Using both t-bar lifts beginners can practice first attempts on the corresponding slopes. The Bobo Children's Club has set up its so-called “Zwergenlöwenland” children's area. With magic carpet lifts, a wavy run and a bobsleigh track the little skiers will playfully learn the perfect skiing technique. Another plus for the family household piggy bank: children under the age of 6 can ski for free at the Mölltaler Glacier ski resort.

If you already feel a little safer standing on one or two boards take the Eisseebahn gondola up to 2.800 meters (9186 ft). Here you will find more blue marked pistes. They will either lead you directly to the Alteck chair lift (No. 5 and 6) or start at more than 3.000 meters (9842 ft) at the summit Schareck (No. 2 and 3). Also athletic skiers will not miss out at this resort because the Alteck chair lift leads advanced skiers to two red marked pistes as well as one black marked slope. On the mountain Schareck you won't be bored either thanks to the Schareck runs No.1 and 4. A real highlight for all expert skiers is the black marked FIS run (No. 10) which starts at the top station of the Eissee gondola.

Freestyle skiers can enjoy a terrain park at the Schareck slope (No. 3) with waves, steep curves and a boardercross course. If you enjoy skiing off the beaten track and in deep powder snow leaving those first traces in fresh snow, you will find 6.7 kilometers (4.2 mi) of demanding and ambitious freeriding areas at the Mölltaler glacier. A true challenge here is the descend from the east wall of the Schareck down to the Stübele See lake.

On Mountain Dining

A popular destination for all visitors at the Mölltaler glacier is the panorama restaurant Eissee. On the menu you'll find various specialties from Kärnten: Something savory such as rack of lamb with typical 'Kasnudel'(pasta with different fillings) or maybe something sweet like warm yeast dumplings with custard – this restaurant has it all! Another place worth your time would be Austria’s highest winter garden at a height of 2.800 meters (9186 ft) where you can enjoy scrumptious foods combined with an even more delicious view!

Must-Ski Runs

Expert skiers need to try the FIS run with the highest elevation in Kärnten. The black marked slope Eissee (No. 10) is quite a challenge with steep and ambitious terrain and a length of seven kilometers (4.3 mi).

In midst of the National Park Hohe Tauern the small community of Flattach has lots of other fun winter activities to offer than just skiing at the Mölltaler glacier. The natural toboggan run in the district Innerfragant provides sledding fun on a 1.3 kilometers (0.8 mi) long track from morning till late at night thanks to the floodlight system! The local ski school also presents snow shoe hikes from time to time and on the ice rink at the elementary school visitors can try their luck away from snow and on the ice!

Après-Ski and Nightlife

A successful ski day at Mölltaler glacier is celebrated with music and drinks from the umbrella bar called 'Europabar' at the intermediate station. But the party on the mountain ends relatively early since all party enthusiasts need to take the last gondola back to the valley and continue their celebration down in Flattach. The so-called Flattacher Hof has a bar situated in a 500 year old vault. The place called Hütten Wirt provides party atmosphere until the early morning hours.
