Ski area Gerlitzen

Ski area Gerlitzen

High above Lake Ossiach, just under 41 kilometres diverse pistes and 15 natural ski routes on all different levels of difficulty await you with the "Gerlitzen" lift pass. Beginners and pros alike will enjoy the broad, sun-soaked slopes in snow-sure Gerlitzen! From November to April, snow-making facilities provide snow safety and the highest piste quality in all directions. This ski area in the heart of Carinthia is especially loved among families with children thanks to its soft and perfectly prepared slopes, and was therefore awarded the "Welcome Beginners" seal of approval.

The little skiers will find the best conditions to practise around the midway station, and are well cared for in the "Kinder- und Schneebärenland". Beginners can calmly try out their swings in the snow on mostly easy to intermediate slopes. More advanced skiers will get their money's worth on the valley run "Klösterle", which is 7 km long and on which you have to conquer about 911 m in altitude. On the Wörthersee-piste that runs from the Gerlitzen summit at 2,000 m at a length of 1 km, winter sports fans have a wonderful view on the surrounding mountain landscape. The challenging "Gegendtaler" slope has a length of 1.7 km and is a true insider's tip for pros. Free riders and snow boarders can let off steam on natural tracks and deep snow runs. For kids, there's a little snow park at the "Kanzelbahn" middle station.

Another must-see on the Gerlitzen: the "Stella Ronda", a 360° star-ski tour that takes you through the ski area on a length 35 kilometres of piste.

Après ski Ossiach

After a day in the snow, numerous mountain huts with spacious sun terraces and diverse après ski snacks invite you to stay in the ski area for a little longer. Enjoy the quaint atmosphere in the "Huaba Hitt'n" hut at the Klösterle-slope II (No. 8) or party along with the other winter sports fan in the inviting outdoor bar at "Neugarten Almseehütte".

Those wanting to turn night into day should visit the neighbouring village Villach (approx. 15 km). Here, party-goers can choose from a large selection of nightlife options. If you are looking for relaxation you will love the thermal bath Warmbad Villach, where you can wind down wonderfully after an eventful day! Alternatively you can enjoy typical Carinthian specialities and a glass of good wine in one of the quaint pubs in the resort.

Snowpark: Kids Snowpark Ossiach

In the ski area Gerlitzen, free stylers on skis and snowboards will find a small but nice park to let off steam in! The "Kids Park" is located nearby the Klösterle section, in which beginners especially will come to love the various obstacles.

Jumps, corner, boxes, slides and waverides will give you a perfect start into the scene and won't fail to amaze you. The combination of the different obstacles and a larger jump also invites more advanced free stylers to show their skills.

The quick chair lift next to the park is a big advantage: the waits are short and there's never a long time between jumps. Curious? Then go and explore the free style paradise of Gerlitzen!
