The Ski Resort
The family snowland Simonhöhe in Carinthia offers winter sports fun on 13 kilometres of slopes.
Those who count themselves among the newcomers in alpine winter sports should first explore the slopes around the 1,340-metre Paulsberg. These can be reached via the Paulsberg and Nord lifts and are all marked in blue. Only the short Winterleitn run is marked red. But it can be bypassed via the easy Silberkrug descent.
Advanced skiers and snowboarders reach the Hocheck via the Simon, Hocheck and Bärental lifts. From there several red and black marked slopes start, like the steep slope slope, the slalom slope or the Bärental slope.
The smallest can practice their first swings together with the mascot Simonhoppel in kids park. The team of the ski and snowboard school Erik Schinegger will help you. The most popular piste for kids is the Märchenwald downhill run. This was lovingly designed with numerous figures, which keep exciting story broads.
Freestyle fans are happy about the funpark on the Simonhöhe. This can be reached via the Hocheck lift.
