in the mountains
Ski touring & snowshoeing
The new craze in the Alps is ski touring. Special skis with skins for a good grip uphill and special ski boots: that’s all you need, and you’re perfectly equipped for ski touring on your winter holiday in Pinzgau. Explore the Salzburg and Tirol mountains almost like you would in summer – except you’re on skis. Scale a 3,000 m-plus peak in the Hohe Tauern or take it easier on a hut-to-hut tour – the choice is yours. Ski touring is strenuous, but definitely worth the effort (and a try). Snowshoeing is another way to enjoy the untouched winter landscape. Discover forests blanketed in white and animal tracks that disappear into the snow.
Toboggan run in Wald: The short toboggan run at Finkenhof in Wald is partly floodlit in the evening until 8.00 p.m. and its gentle gradient makes it perfect for young tobogganers. 1 x weekly: torchlit hike to the toboggan run
Toboggan run in Königsleiten: The start of the toboggan run is behind the Ursprungs Panorama Hotel. Whizz through the romantic snow-covered landscape 950 m down to Alte Gerlosstraße, the B 165 road.
