Small and big slope racers have the possibility to expand their talents at our ski schools. Experience a skiing vacation that you will remember for a long time!
Snuggled up in a hood, gloves and a warm winter coat, you walk along the numerous winter hiking trails. Keep your cardiovascular system on the move and try the classified cross-country ski trails around the Weirerteich. The glittering ice crystals and rays of warming sun light will accompany you along the way.
Together with your friends and the whole family you will enjoy the natural toboggan runs. The region of Murau, cushioned in white cotton, is waiting for you.
Gentle tracks stretch along the mountain slopes. Step by step you get closer to heaven with the skins on your ski touring skis or with big bear paws on your feet. Enjoy amazing winter sport in the middle of the silent nature. Once you reach your destination, you will be rewarded by a magnificent panorama of the Tauern mountains and the Carinthian basin all the way to Slovenia.
In the afternoon you take the opportunity to holistically strengthen your body. Slowly you glide over the white glittering carpet and make your loops on the perfectly groomed cross-country ski trails. You listen intently to the crunching of the snow under your skis and the sound of the wind in the trees. The movement makes you feel your body.
Wrapped up thickly in your warm winter clothes and armed with gloves, you set off to go tobogganing. Without much effort, you reach your starting point. Casually you swing onto your toboggan and rapidly take curve down into the valley. Your laughter can be heard far and wide.
A cozy winter day comes to an end
Arrived back at the hotel, you have earned a little rest. Warm up your frozen body with a small sauna session in the cozy relaxarium or take a pleasant bath. Suddenly you come across your favorite book you brought with you. You have enough time! Curiosity overtakes you and you can hardly wait to get to the end of the story. As your stomach starts to growl, you are able to put the book aside for a moment. Only now you realize how hungry you really are. Today's recommendations are already waiting at your table with a small sweet nibble to finish. With a selected glass of wine or a sip of beer, you let the evening come to an end.
Satisfied and happy you go to your room and are already excited about the next day.
