In the Lungau region, you will find one of the most beautiful ski
mountains in SalzburgerLand – the Fanningberg in Mariapfarr!
Our sunny, snowy FAMILY SKI AREA is located at an altitude of 1,500 – 2,100 m, far above the daily grind, offering every sport enthusiast pure wintertime fun. With the comfortable 6-seater SAMSON CHAIR LIFT (also featuring all-weather bubbles) plus 3 additional tows, you will soar to lofty heights in only 7 minutes, where you will find yourself surrounded by the unique, enchanting alpine world of Salzburg.
The 6-seater ZIRBENJET chair lift brings winter sports fans to the expert Rader run, as well as to the steep Weisspriach hill at an elevation of 2,100 m. The ZIRBENJET is a 6-seater chair lift with state-of-the-art technology, offering heated seats and all-weather bubbles.
Speedily zip down 30 kilometers of superbly groomed slopes– whether on skis or a board – whether a beginner or a pro – the FANNINGBERG is definitely “where it’s at” and its magical slopes will make the heart of every winter sports enthusiast beat faster in anticipation of discovering a superlative ski experience
On the Fanningberg, we also care for the little ones. At FANNIKinderpark, in a sunny location near the magic carpet, the kids can have fun in the snow, play with familiar fairy-tale characters, and easily and playfully learn how to ski. Young and old can also attend the ski school, an unforgettable winter vacation experience for so many. If you don’t want to lug your ski equipment from home, you can rent EVERYTHING for your ski vacation (the very latest equipment), and on top of that enjoy the special service provided by our local sports stores.
At the GAMSSTADL at 2,015 m, your host Toni personally cooks and sings, bringing fresh pastries from Grandma’s kitchen to your table, which you can enjoy out on the panoramic terrace with views across all of the Lungau region. Once a week (Wednesday), there are also group sledding expeditions to an 8.5 km long, floodlit natural toboggan run, with a meal of pork knuckle accompanied by alpine folk music afterwards. If you ski down the family hill, you will reach the ZIRMBAR, possibly the most rustic ski hut on the Fanningberg, and to the EDELWEISSALM & ZIRBERL, newly constructed this year. Hans, the owner of the ZIRMBAR & ZIRBERL, pampers his guests with delicacies and products from his own farm, while Otto from the EDELWEISS-ALM brings hearty, home-style Lungau cooking to the table.
Right next to the Schmied run, which is one of Fanningberg’s most beautiful hills, restaurants “SAUSCHNEIDERALM” and, close to the valley terminal, “FANNINGBERGHOF”, as well as the “RUCKSACKL”, all invite you to stop in for refreshments. Here guests are served, aside from traditional local favorites, exquisite culinary delicacies such as wild game and fish dishes. Restaurant RUCKSACKL, right by the ski slope near the valley terminal, also serves exceptional Lungau specialties.
Located on the Moderkopf run, the ALMSTÜBERL is sure to allure you with its special flair and a large sunny terrace, an absolute MUST for every FANNINGBERG FAN. A stop at the après-ski party going on at OTTO`S UMBRELLA BAR tops off a magical day of skiing on the Fanningberg, certain to make your winter vacation experience quite unforgettable.
