The Ski Resort
Grab the gondola Waidring in the eponymous valley Waidring to get up the mountain quickly. From here you´ll have access to the red and blue trails.
Steinplatte has a wealth of trails for novice skiers and snowboarders by boasting ten trails that are suitable for them. The parking lot run starts at Kammerkör and you can always see that you´re on the right track by following the Kammerkör chairlift. Two other Kammerkör runs start at Kammerkör that go parallel to Kapellen chairlift. The trails will bring you back to the base of Kapell chairlift and Steinplatte chairlift. You can also take the Möseralm trail that starts at Kammerkör as well. The name speaks for itself, it takes you to Möseralm. The Roßalm trail is located in the ski resort Winklmoosalm, connected by the Scheibberg chairlift. Start at Möseralm and ski through the foresty area in order to get to Winklmoosalm lift top station and off you go on the Roßalm trail. Ski parallel to Roßalm chairlift to get back to the base station. At Roßalm chairlift top station starts the Ziegeuner run as well. By skiing down you will get to the base station of the ski tow Zigeuner-Kurven.
Beginners are mostly restricted to the runs at Kammerkör while intermediate skiers will love the trails starting at the peak of Steinplatte. Catch the Plattenkogel chairlift to get up to the vertical rise of 1869 meters (6131 feet) above sea level. You can also hit the Steinberg runs that take you along the chairlift Bäreck to its valley station or the Larchen run that takes you back to the base station of Plattenkogel chairlift. Don´t miss the red marked Kammerkör run. It starts at mountain station of Steinplatte chairlift and brings you back to the base.
The Nordhang trail will even please the most courageous skier and snowboarder. Starting point is the peak of Steinplatte at a height of 1869 meters (6131 feet). Hit your personal limit while making your way back to the base of Plattenkogel chairlift.
Check out the terrain park with fun slope at Steinplatte. The park is accessible via Kapellen chairlift and lies parallel to it. The 740 meter (2427 feet) long park splits into a beginner, medium and advanced terrain. The beginner line will help ski newbies to explore new skills and practice new moves on dancefloor, wax box, elephant box, flat/down butter-box and mushroom-jib. You´ll also find a 1/3 tube as well as countless jumps. The Medium line for intermediate Freestyler includes a 3 meter (10 feet) wallride spine, a 6-meter (19 feet) long picknicker and a jibcam plus a lollipop. You can also hit the 7 (23 feet) or 8 meter (26 feet) long rails and three different boxes. The advanced terrain boats a massive kicker line with 11 meter (36 feet) long jumps. Every expert freestyler will feel his heart race faster!
On Mountain Dining
The Möseralm offers yummy dishes and a generous sun deck to recharge your batteries and prepare to hit the ski trails after. The featured umbrella bar is great for a drink or two.
When you get out at the base station of the 6 seater chairlift Plattenkoppel you´ll see the self-service cafeteria restaurant Bäreck. It´s famous among seasonnaires and locals for an outstanding good cuisine and a comfy sun terrace.
The most challenging run is the black marked Nordhang run that brings you from the peak of Steinplatte down to Plattenkogel chairlift base station. The run brings a length of 1,2 kilometers to the table and you actually have to overcome a height difference of 385 meters on your way back to the base station Plattenkogel chairlift.
