OPEN FROM WINTER 2019/20: THE NEW GABÜHEL LIFT

Hochkönig je skijalište








After a construction period of 2 years, the modern 10-seater gondola lift is now
complete and ready to transport winter sports enthusiasts up the Gabühel mountain
in Dienten in just 5 minutes 42 seconds. This makes access to the Hochkönig nature
experience even quicker, quieter, and more convenient. After a long day’s skiing or if
legs are a bit tired, skiers and snowboarders can take the relaxed option of the new
gondola lift to get back down to the bottom of the valley.
THE KÖNIGSTOUR: 35KM OF TRULY MAJESTIC PISTES
6 peaks, 35 km of linked pistes, and 7500 vertical metres. These are the basic facts
about the Königstour, a tour that has been recognised as the best ski route in the
Alps by the world’s largest test portal. However, there is much more behind these
numbers themselves: amazing panoramas to take your breath away, perfectly
prepared pistes for limitless skiing pleasure. There are Alpine huts dotted along
beautiful pistes, romantic and interpreted in a modern way, inviting guests to take a
break. And unique Alpine views everywhere of the majestic Hochkönig massif and
the Steinernes Meer mountains.

AMAZING OFFERS FOR CHILDREN: FAMILY WINTERS AT THE HOCHKÖNIG

Winter at the Hochkönig

In the Hochkönig region, the youngest guests are sensitively taught how to ski, whilst
older ones enjoy more of an action approach in the snow. This leaves parents free to
enjoy their ski day to the full. The Schneewutzel Kinderclubs in the ski schools in the
region have fun and safety as their main priorities when teaching children how to
make their first turns. Children under the age of 6 years can ski for free, or can be
looked after in the guest kindergarten from the age of 2. The ski lifts in the Hochkönig
region have special Schneewutzel entrances to make access easier for children. The
Schneewutzel diversions come as a welcome relief for children, offering alternative
routes on more difficult pistes, and enabling them to enjoy their adventures in the
snow safely and free of fear. Older children are brave enough to tackle the
Schönanger Funslope on the Aberg mountain with, amongst other features, little
jumps, a wave slope, and a snow tunnel to explore.
