The Ski Resort
The tranquil skiing area at Gschwandtkopf in Seefeld is perfectly suited for all those who want to rediscover the fun of winter sports after a long time or who are standing on the boards for the first time. Especially for families with young skiers, the easy descents on the 1,500 metre high Gschwandtkopf therefore offer the best conditions for a great skiing day.
From the Gschwandtkopf base station in Seefeld you can either take the drag lifts to the shorter downhill runs, where you can "warm up", or take the chair lift up to the highest point of the ski area, the summit of the Gschwandtkopf. From there you ski back to the base station on blue-marked slopes.
Alternatively you can go through a forested area to Seewaldalm, which lies between the villages Seefeld and Mösern. From here you can then use the drag lifts to get back up to the top and then take another blue marked run through the forest back to the slopes above the Gschwandtkopf base station.
