Nature experience instead of slope party

Skiing in the Hohe Tauern National Park: this is a "winter" sporting experience as it should be. We don't do much artistry, nature sets the tone and makes the rules. In the ski areas from Heiligenblut to Emberger Alm, sport and alpine experience dominate. We don't have the most kilometers of slopes or après-ski temples, but you can expect guaranteed snow, long seasons and wonderful, open skiing space.

WHAT A REAL POWDER FAN SAYS

FREERIDER

"For many years I had no idea what a powder wonderland was hidden on the south side of the Alps. Far too often I struggled to find the "first line" in the better-known ski resorts. In the Ankogel/Mallnitz ski area, I found what I was looking for. Beautiful, wide powder slopes to far above the tree line and snow safety speak from my soul. I will certainly come again, hopefully not too many do the same to me ..."!
