Skiing in the Lachtal
The Lachtal is approx. 35 minutes by car from the Hotel Gasthof Lercher in Murau and is known as the family-friendliest area of the Murtaler ski areas.
It is one of the most beautiful and biggest ski areas in Styria with 100 percent snow reliability. The highest point is located 2.222 m above sea level.
The ski area Lachtal guarantees winter fun for more than just one day. If you need an alternative to skiing, you have the chance to visit one of the excursion destinations in the region. The Lercher’s Wirtshaus provides you with regional delicacies during your stay. You also have the possibility to experience numerous activities in summer, such as golfing, hiking and cycling.
A winter sports-appropriate facemask is required on the mountain lifts (chairlift and tow lifts) and in all queuing areas (lift ticket office, access cable cars and lifts). You will find additional lift ticket offices and ticket machines at the valley station.
Conveniently, you are able to buy your ticket online at home. The lift ticket offices and the sanitary rooms are sufficiently equipped with disinfectant dispensers.
For transportation with cable cars, a 2-G certificate is required from the age of 12. This 2-G certificate must be presented when purchasing the ticket. However, for schoolchildren the Corona test pass ("Ninja - Pass") is also valid; if the scheduled test intervals are adhered, the test is also valid on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Lifts and cable cars
6-seater lifts, chairlifts and 8 draglifts await you at the winter sport area Lachtal. There is a “magic carpet” and a “Teddy-rope-lift” for the smaller ones to enjoy as well. Kids have the chance to race through a parcour of puppets and the “wave-track”.
Slope kilometres and level of difficulty
The 35 km long slopes are divided into 7 km of blue slope (easy), 16 km of red slope (intermediate) and 2 km of black slope (difficult). In addition, there is a 10 km long marked, but ungroomed slope available as well.
The operating hours are daily from 9 am to 4 pm. 150 hectare of ski area guarantee a great time on the slopes. Exciting trails give you a real “free-riding-feeling”. The “Lachtal for children” promises a lot of fun with its mini slalom, the colourful parcour of puppets, the “wave trail” and a treasure hunt.
Due to the collaboration of the Kreischberg and the Lachtal, you have the possibility to enjoy two mountains of the holiday region Murtal at the same time with one ski pass.
You also have the advantage of the “Styrian Joker” and the “Murtal 8er-skipass” at the Lachtal. Moreover, you are able to buy a multi-day pass as well as a pass for the whole season.
