This pretty Tyrolean resort is ideal for beginners and lower intermediates who want to sample old-fashioned Austrian ambience, without the commercialisation of larger, better-known ski areas.
It has 40km of runs, including excellent nursery slopes close to the village centre and pretty, tree-lined runs further afield. The big attraction for improving skiers is that they can also try the neighbouring resort of St Jakob in Haus – another pretty area, located in something of a 'schneewinkel' (snow-pocket) – on the same lift pass. You can also get over to Waidring and the more mainstream resort of St Johann in Tirol. The resort is boarder-friendly, with a popular terrain park.
