Summer skiing on the Mölltal Glacier

Hi, I'm Isabell, one of the editors at I've been skiing since I was a kid and now I can't wait to get back on the slopes every winter. That's why I'm lucky that (after my studies in media and communication) I found a job where everything revolves around my favourite hobby. If you have any questions about me or about, ask me!

With the unexpected end of the season in March, some people had to cancel their skiing holidays this year. Those who still have some catching up to do or simply can't wait until next winter, can strap on their skis or snowboard in summer too. Because with over two metres of snow on the mountain, the slopes on the Mölltal glacier are also open in summer. Many professional teams use this to prepare for winter.

On the Mölltal glacier the ski lifts are also in operation in the summer months. The summer season on Carinthia's only glacier has been running since 6 June. The Glacier Express and the Ice Lake gondola lift take you up to the ski area.

There the Gletscher Jet and the chairlift 3000 take you to the three open slopes at Schareck. The pistes are between 2,800 and 3,122 metres. Many professional teams also use the snow-assured conditions on the glacier to train and test the new ski models.


The trails on the Mölltal glacier are open in summer from 8.00 to 15.30. The last descent with the Gletscher Express is possible at 4 pm. Skiers don't have to do without the stopover in summer either. The Panorama Restaurant Eissee is also open. Due to the current corona situation, masks are compulsory in the gondolas for the safety of the guests. A day ticket in the summer season costs 49 euros.

New Funpark opened

Since the beginning of July, freestylers can use the snow park at the "Mölli". At the moment it consists of flat-rail, double kink rail, downrail, canonrail and a 14 meter jump, more obstacles are to follow.

On this webcam you can see the snow park very well between the runs at the Schareck (picture is updated several times a day):
