Magical winter scenery, active entertainment
Winter in Maria Alm whisks you away to magical scenery. Wildly craggy, high-rising mountain giants meet rolling hills. Sun, sky and land create an amazing image in white and blue.
A winter wonderland providing the utmost holiday bliss awaits you around Maria Alm, Dienten and Mühlbach. Gleefully anticipating your impending visit, we’ll gladly share all that awaits you on and around the deeply snow-covered peak of emotions.
Ski holidays in Maria Alm
Are you already familiar with the particularly scenic ski region Hochkönig? An amazing 120 km of slopes, exceedingly snow-reliable and multifaceted await all skiers and snowboarders with just one single ski pass. The free ski bus transports you to one of the 32 lifts in no time. Travelling to altitudes of up to 1,900 m flies by.
Slopes in all difficulties await you in the ski area Hochkönig. There’s something for every taste, ranging from the neat beginner’s slope for divine family ski holidays on the Hochkönig to steep downhills for genuine pros – and the perfect infrastructure including ski school, ski rental and culinary hut experience is right along there with it. A trip to one of the amazing ski circuits, such as the imposing Königstour, adds to the winter holidays in Maria Alm as does an exploration of the other Ski amadé ski regions round your farm accommodation.
Classic skiing and slope options aside, boarders and fun-loving skiers love the region as well. Several fun parks playfully introduce young slopesters to tricks and slides while pros try their hand at daunting obstacles. There’s also always something happening beyond the slopes – with ever an eye on the latest avalanche report, of course.
Ski tours on the Hochkönig
Do you like to hit the open mountain every once in a while? We most certainly get where you’re coming from. The ski tours around your accommodation on the organic farm Ebengut offer something for everyone. Several routes lead through the heart of the Hochkönig massif, best accompanied by an experienced local mountain guide.
Still a bit out of breath after the pretty challenging – mostly undisturbed – trek uphill on the predominantly open mountain, you’ll earn your well-deserved reward on the peak: a gorgeous view over wide parts of Salzburg. The tours onto the Aberg and to the Statzerhaus are particularly grand for experienced ski mountaineers.
Our tip: As soon as dusk brings its mystical scheme of colours to the mountain side and skiing operations are about to wind down, you trek up the mountain via Wastlalm to the Abergalm. Proper endurance is key!
Unlimited cross country skiing fun
How about a taste of the noble Nordic sport of cross-country skiing while spending winter in Maria Alm? 40 km of amazingly structured runs lead you through the heart of the region, both in classic and in skating technique. Find all you need from the neat beginner’s run to the altitude run for experience cross-country skiers.
Talk about experience: Are you looking to finally gain some cross-country experience, or would you love to refresh your underused skill set? That’s not a problem either as the regional ski schools offer beginner-friendly group courses, technique training for the advanced and private lessons after your fancy.
Winter hiking & snowshoeing on the Hochkönig
The walking and hiking regions of summertime keep busy in winter as well. Winter hiking and snowshoeing enjoy increasing popularity around the Ebengut guaranteed by the wide variety of daily snow-cleared paths and rather trick tours in challenging terrain.
Many of the paths and tours lend themselves to joint family tours. The ski bus brings you to the start of your hike in no time. Several rest stop options await you with a hearty snack and a mug of Jagatee or mulled wine. It doesn’t get more enjoyable than here in Maria Alm, Dienten, Mühlbach and Hinterthal.
Time to get onto the toboggan! Numerous toboggan runs on and around the Hochkönig feverishly woo you. Rent your wooden or sport toboggan on site and hit the run. Don’t forget to wear sturdy shoes and snow goggles!
Where will your tobogganing trip lead you today? How about paying a visit to the Biberg in Saalfelden, home of Austria’s longest winter toboggan run? Maybe you’re enticed by the run on the Jufen or at Gasthof Kronreith in close proximity to Ebengut. It goes without saying that there are many more amazing runs and hills for one of the most enjoyable winter activities around Maria Alm in the neighbouring villages.
