Ski area Hinterstoder/Wurzeralm

With the lift pass "Hinterstoder/Wurzeralm" you can choose from a total of approx. 62 km of piste, spread over two attractive ski areas in the Pyhrn-Priel region.

The World Cup resort Hinterstoder, with its ski area at the Hutter Höss (1,858 m) offers 40 km of excellent pistes for all levels of skill. With the Höss-Express you can easily access the mostly intermediate panorama descents and the tow lifts to the Schafkogel at 2,000 m altitude - the highest point of the ski area. From here, there are only blue pistes accessible, but further down they also run into red slopes. The "Sunny's Kidspark" is the perfect place for the little ones to get their first experience on skis. The smallest ones are well cared for in the "Zwergennest", located at the middle station. The local highlights include "Hannes-Trinkl" World Cup slope, which leads back down into the valley, a speed-tracking piste, the SnowTrail discovery track, a funpark and a challenging ski route. Should fresh snow be rare for a while, 80% of the pistes can be maintained by snow canons. In February 2016, the FIS Ski World Cup in SuperG and the giant slalom race for the men took place on the "Hannes-Trinkl" piste in the sports arena Phyrn-Priel.

No less attractive is the ski area at the Wurzeralm. Europe's fastest gondola transports the winter sports fans to the mountain station at 1,400 m in only 7 minutes. 22 km of piste only wait to be explored here, accessible via 8 lift systems. The highest point in the ski area is the Frauenkar, at 1,870 m. From here, you can enjoy a brilliant panorama view over the surrounding 2,000 metre peaks. A diverse selection of easy and intermediate pistes, sufficient snow canons, two valley runs and the "Sunny Kidspark" for the ski stars of tomorrow, provide for everything any winter sports enthusiast could wish for.

Soon, we'll be back to saying "On your mark, get set, go!" again because the FIS Ski World Cup will be a guest in Hinterstoder. The expected dates for the Super-G and the men's giant slalom are 29/02/2020 and 01/03/2020.

Après ski Windischgarsten

Being the centre of the entire holiday region, Windischgarsten has a broad offer of leisure time activities away from the pistes. Nature and winter hiking enthusiasts should go on a tour to the "Stoderer Weitblick". From the neighbouring resort Vorderstoder, a 4.2 km long hiking trail leads up to the view point which offers a beautiful panorama view of the Stoder Valley and the Limestone Alps. Unlimited tobogganing fun can be experienced on the natural toboggan runs in Edlbach and Hinterstoder, but you can also toboggan just anywhere, since this is permitted here.

Should the weather be non-skier friendly, the resort has still enough to keep you entertained. Curling is possible in the specially designed curling hall and the Austrian Alpine Community invites you try out rock climbing in the climbing hall. In the Kulturhaus Römerfeld, a modern glass building in the heart of the resort, there are various cultural events available, everything from lecture to cinema evening. A relaxing alternative occupation is a visit to the day-spa: at "Dilly's Wellnesstag" you can have swim, go to the sauna and enjoy the vitality food buffet in the Spa Hotel. The pool area offers three outdoor pool and a sky garden, further there is a Kids Aquarium with 50 m long slide, children's indoor pool and softplay area.

For all those who want to move on and party, there are the pubs such as "Big Ben", "Charly's Pub" or the bar "Pepito" available, and which are open until late at night. In the "Altstadt reloaded" disco or in the "Tanzcafé Mayr" you can party on until the early morning hours.

Snowpark: Snowpark Höss Windischgarsten

In the heart of the ski area Hinterstoder am Höss, directly at the Schullift slope and next to the speed-tracking slope, lies one of the most popular funparks in Upper Austria. New and experienced freestylers come together here to shred and jib as they please. Various rails, boxes, wave rides and a double kicker line are available to choose from. Boardercross is also possible here. There is enough space, to also enable both beginners to try out their first moves, as well as give pros the opportunity to show off their skills or present a magnificent duet jump.
