Altaussee – a paradise for families

Dive right in to a powdery-white winter-wonder-land full of pleasures, tradition and adventure! 

Nestled between breathtaking peaks like the Loser, the Grimming or the Dachstein, the Ausseerland-Salzkammergut is the ideal place for a family winter vacation. Far away from the noisy and overcrowded ski resorts that focus on the „afterparty“, Altaussee has become a beloved destination for nature lovers, and connoisseurs of the gentler side of tourism. Be it downhill skiing, snowshoe hiking, ski touring, ice skating on the lake, cross country skiing or sledding through the snow laden forests of Altaussee –  this place will let you enjoy the season in a relaxed and „slow“ kind of manner.

80 kilometers of winter fun
In the Ausseerland-Salzkammergut Downhill skiers as well as snowboarders can enjoy 80 kilometres of perfectly prepared slopes within two of the most gorgeous skiing resorts in the whole of Austria. The „Erlebnisberg Loser Altaussee“ and „Die Tauplitz“ beckon with sunny slopes and breathtaking alpine vistas. Each winter, heaps of powdery-white snow are guaranteed! Here beginners, advanced riders, kids, families and winter sports pros will find whatever they are looking for. 

For families: One very remarkable highlight, when it comes to downhill riding, is the 9-kilometers-long „family slope“ on the „Erlebnisberg Loser Altaussee“. It is the longest of it's kind in Austria and lined with numerous traditional mountain lodges to „swing by“, rest and enjoy the view. If you want, you can indulge yourself with regional delicacies.

Hint: The „Loserfenster“ on the „Erlebnisberg Loser Altaussee“ is a real Eldorado for free riders after fresh snow had been falling! Its varied terrain is perfect to optimize ones deep-snow-riding-skills – and if the weather is right, the resorts preparation team will even create shaped obstacle courses for you to practice your jumps, flips and turns.
