Ski area Mölltaler Gletscher

The lift pass "SkiHit" opens up altogether 186 fantastic km of piste (incl. ski routes) in the 9 ski areas of East Tyrol to you (see ski region). These also include the 2 highest Carinthian ski mountains: the Mölltal Glacier and the Ankogel.

From Obervellach to Flattach it is only approx. 6 km. From there the longest underground cable car of the Alps, the Glacier-Express, brings you to the only Carinthian Glacier ski area at the Mölltal Glacier in 8 minutes. This area offers 71 km of piste and 9 lifts. The tree free "Cinemascope" pistes at the "Mölli" will elicit a special enthusiasm in carvers. Fans of high speeds choose the 7 km long, highest Carinthian FIS piste which leads all the way down to Flattach. Of course there is also a funpark for freestylers up here.

Families value the only approx. 10 km distant ski area at the Ankogel. From Mallnitz you can get to this popular panoramic mountain which offers 35 km of piste. On top of the wide and open summit pistes, which offer a great view of the Grossglockner and the Dolomites, pros are comfortable, while beginners can be found at the Köfele lifts in the valley. Children rely on Penguin Bobo and his kid's ski school. An especially appealing piste is the valley descent Mallnitz with a length of 7 km and an altitude difference of 1,349 m.

Or try a swift descent down the 3 km long toboggan run. Ice skaters can leave their trails on the ice rink and tennis and squash players head to the tennis centre.

Snowpark: Snowpark Mölltaler Gletscher Obervellach

Free stylers should pay special attention to the ski area at the Mölltal glacier. The fun park below the Schareck piste invites boarder pros and turns the ski area to a popular meeting point. A wave trail, steep turns, kickers and jumps provide variety and give you the opportunity to marvel at the fascinating panorama from above.

Sounding too boring to you? Then you should have a look at the boardercross track and compete with the pros of the scene.
