The skiing arena: Lackenhof am Ötscher

Legendary alpine skiing fun in the cosy mountain village: The Lackenhof-Ötscher ski resort offers varied winter fun to ambitious skiers and families alike.

The cosy, family-run mountain village at the foot of Mt. Ötscher is a paradise for winter sports – especially for families who appreciate a varied and affordable range of winter sports opportunities as well as car-free skiing holidays. Because in Lackenhof, the accommodations are practically located at the edge of the slope.

Multi-faceted skiing arena at the foot of Mt. Ötscher

The versatile Lackenhof-Ötscher ski resort offers exquisite skiing fun between 810 and 1,437 metres above sea level. Eight lifts cover a total of 19 kilometres of slopes that offer the perfect challenges for all levels: For those who love perfect carving turns, the tried and tested Snowboard World Cup slope „Distelpiste“ (slope no. 3/4) is the place to be. Steep and challenging are the steep slopes on the Großer Ötscher (slope no. 1) and on the Kleiner Ötscher (slope no. 5).

But also families can expect inexpensive winter sports fun when skiing on Mt. Ötscher: Once you arrive at the „Sunny Kids Park“ with magic carpet lifts and childcare, the little „snow bunnies“ won't want to go home at all anymore. The gentle family ski run (slope no. 8) is perfectly suited for practicing everything you have learned already. Kids (born in 2007 or younger and accompanied by a parent) can frolic about on their skis with the Kids Card.
