Winter at the ski region Hochkönig

Wintery group and family holiday on the Hochkönig

Have you already made plans for your school winter sports weeks? Would you as parents  like to provide your children with a very special snow experience? At an altitude of more than 2,000 m, the ski region Hochkönig is one of the most snow-reliable ski regions in the entire province of Salzburg and is in close proximity to Jugendhotel Sonnenhof . The access point is only 300 m from the hotel and can be easily reached on foot.

Snowboarding and skiing in Maria Alm

33 ultramodern comfortable lifts elevate you to 120 kilometres of smoothly connected slopes in the heart of Ski Amadé, including the ski region Hochkönig. Experience wonderful slope conditions with white powder in varying levels of difficulty with breathtaking mountain views. Enjoy the invitingly warm winter sun and glide across the slopes with pleasure. Ski instructors and ski lessons can be booked via the local ski school allowing you to get the most out of snowboarding and skiing on the Hochkönig. Exclusive Sonnenhof service for group travellers: we organise and pick up your ski passes saving you long waiting times and granting you direct access to the ski area. Guests of our house also get a free, lockable ski depot at the Areitbahn.

Winter fun beyond the slope

If you don’t happen to feel like skiing or snowboarding, the area around the ski region Hochkönig has many other activities to offer that will entertain young guests. The high-speed toboggan runs offer fun and action. Enjoy the idyllic winter in Maria Alm on cross-country skis and 30 km of runs. Head out into the open nature with both feet on the ground or do some snowshoe hiking through the freshly fallen winter snow.
