Ski area Almenwelt Lofer

Ski area Almenwelt Lofer

The lift pass "Almenwelt Lofer" gives you access to the 57 km of piste and 14 lifts in the ski areas "Almenwelt Lofer" and "Unken Heutal".

The ski area "Almenwelt Lofer" has 46 km of piste and 10 lifts and is the ideal place for pleasure skiers. The ski area in the heart of the Salzburger Saalachtal stretches from 640 - 1,747 m and offers primarily easy to intermediate runs on its wide, flat mountain pastures.

The modern 8-persons chair lift especially makes families happy, as the child proof lift with automatically closable safety belts even brings the smallest skier safely to the peak. Fresh blue runs are very suitable for the first swings.

Thanks to numerous snow systems in the lower areas, the 9 km long valley run is secure nearly all season long and offers pure ski enjoyment! Those not wanting to pass on any challenges can head to the Hochwena-Alpin-Piste: the black run stretches over the steep northern slope on Grubhörndl. The clear family resort offers beginners and children some nice slopes to practice on the valley and mountain station. The great children's deal enables the possibility to a wonderful ski holiday for the whole family!

The ski area "Unken-Heutal" with its 11 km of piste and 4 lifts is especially suitable for begginers and little skiers. The ski school in Unken not only offers snowboard-, freestyle-, ski- and children's ski lessons, but also snow-shoe hikes. The family-friendly ski area is both attractive and diverse.

If you are looking for even more fun on skis the "3 Länder Freizeit-Arena" is just the right place for you. Young and old can look forward to endless skiing fun on approx. 171 km of skis and 61 lifts in the ski areas Almwelt Lofer, St. Johann in Tyrol/Oberndorf, Erpfendorf, Pillersee/Buchensteinwand, Kirchdorf, Steinplatte Waidring, Winklmoosalm - Reit im WInkl as well as the Heutal Lifts Unken!

Après ski Lofer

Comfort and pleasure are a top priority in Lofer. The huts and restaurants in particular invite you in to treat your taste buds. Should anyone still prefer to party, you will get your money's worth in the "Hasenstall" at the Loferer Alm or in the "Karrusell" in the valley!

Lofer is nothing to scoff at when it comes to sports either: whether you take a spin on the natural skating rink, dare to go on a speedy descent on one of the tobogganing runs, or savour the magnificent view of the sun-kissed plateau of the Loferer Alm from the branching winter hiking trail network (130 km) – boredom will definitely not set in here! An insider's tip is the tour through the Lamprechts Cave near St. Martin, the world's largest passable cave.

Snowpark: Lofer

The Almwelt Lofer and its deserted pistes, which offer you maximum skiing fun and perfect piste conditions, also have a lot to offer when it comes to freestyling. No matter whether you are a freeskier or snowboarder, the regional ski schools are perfectly adapted to the needs of the "young wild".

The 3 year old "Snowpark L.A." at the Family Express comprises a beginner, as well as a medium line and has 18 different obstacles which incite all adrenaline junkies - beginner or pro - to try some jumps. Various boxes, such as a 4 m butter flat box, a 4 m butter rainbow box, a 3 m rainbow box, as well as a 3 m up down box, two mogul pistes and different jumps varying in height from 2 to 4 m are great for beginners and offer them the opportunity of getting used to the feel and practice some moves.

For the advanced freestylers and pros of the scene, especially the 7 m flat down box, the 6 m rainbow box, the 6 m flat box, and the 6 to 8 m jumps will be interesting. You would like to fly high? Then this is the prefect location for you!
