Cross-country and ski holiday:
winter in Windischgarsten

Winter dream in two ski regions

A light breeze whirls delicate snowflakes through fresh winter air, a sea of slopes in various levels of difficulty spreads out before your eyes. Wide and comfy for families, steep and tricky for real pros – skiing and Windischgarsten are two things that simply belong together.

A whopping two multifaceted ski regions with a total of 70 non-connected slope kilometres await you with alpine highlights of all sorts. There’s even some exciting action and Nordic fun to be had beyond the slopes. Discover the attractive leisure options for your winter and ski holidays in Upper Austria!

World Cup site Hinterstoder

Hinterstoder has been the site of FIS Alpine Skiing World Cup races since 1986 – and you’re at the centre of it all! The cabin cable car takes you directly from the town centre to the Hutterer Boden and onwards up to the Hoss at 2,000 m above sea level. Attractive slopes for every experience levels, fun offers for the youngest guests, and the speed and cross trail run need to be explored. Experienced skiers can give the Hannes Trinkl world cup slope a shot.

Winter world Wurzeralm

Ski in Pyhrn Priel in the middle of the natural reserve – the Wurzeralm makes it possible. Be enchanted by the divine mountain world and combine refreshing alpine fun with grand panoramic views and ideal facilities. Your ski holidays in Windischgarsten won’t cease to amaze you, from the diverse selection of slopes with virtually endless valley downhill runs to refined culinary hut art.

Cross-country skiing in Windischgarsten

If you’re not up for alpine feats, Windischgarsten also offers something completely different. 120 km of cross-country slopes in four different altitudes (ranging from 600 to 1,400 m) await enthusiastic cross-country skiers beyond the big ski regions.

Mostly equipped with a classic and a skating run, you get to glide through the winter sport region with a constant view of the deeply snow-covered winter sport region. The biathlon centre Rosenau and Hinterstoder have even more challenging runs for all experience levels in store.
