Winter sports in the Mostviertel

Enjoy the assets of winter on and offside the slopes.

Skiing or snowboarding, cross-country skiing or alpine touring? It’s up to you! Winter sports enthusiasts can really draw on plentiful resources of the Mostviertel Alps.

Four large ski areas and several small but nice ski villages have everything families and freeriders need for their perfect winter vacation. In Mostviertel, one also finds the highest elevated ski area of the Eastern Alps, the Hochkar, where snow is assured: It is no wonder that some of the greatest Austrian winter sports athletes have their home turf in these mountain villages. So, it does not matter if you are a complete beginner or a ski touring aficionado: The Mostviertel has ideal conditions for each desire.

Make a stopover at a rustic hut for getting to know the friendly-mannered Mostviertel people. If you need more time for relaxation, warm yourself up in Ybbs Valley Saltwater Spa. Holidaymakers who want to stay active off-piste try ice-skating, tobogganing or go on a romantic snowshoe hike.
