With its meteorologically-favorable location between Carinthia and Salzburg,
the ski area profits from Carinthia’s prolonged periods of nice weather, as it
does from perfectly timed snowfall coming in from various directions.
Of course there are many practice slopes for the kids. A special highlight is
the “Diretissima” from Aineck summit terminal with a gradient of 60-100 % !
The ski runs from Aineck in the direction of St. Margarethen im Lungau have
always been very popular and became even more so with the addition of the
A1 two years ago, one of Austria’s longest ski runs (6 km). The uphill trip back
to Aineck summit however proved to be truly tedious and could only be
accomplished with 3 lift changes. This and the aging lifts – a chair lift and 3 tows
– made the uphill journey a true test of patience.
The 8-seater gondola by Doppelmayr: this winter, things will certainly be different.
The new lift, a gondola lift with cabins for 8 people, replaces the last two tows and
should reduce the total uphill ride time by half. The new lift provides access to around
30 ha of slopes (Hochfeld, Kar run and Snowbowle). It is 1,700 m long and overcomes
an elevation change of 470 m (valley terminal: 1,750 m, mountain terminal: 2,220 m);
its passenger capacity amounts to 2,400 people per hour. Info can be found at:
