THE REGION


A hidden gem of a ski area that combines with Flachauwinkl & Kleinarl and offers skiing across 3 valleys. The resorts are located just above the resorts of Flachau and Wagrain and although not directly linked they are included on the ski pass for the Salzburger Sportwelt area.
However, there are plans in motion to have the ski areas link in the near future, this would be a great boon as these three valleys offer some great skiing including the fabulous World Cup in Zauchensee itself that will fully test all abilities!
 
 

THE SKIING

Zauchensee offers a fabulous American style resort set up with a large ‘mall’ style base station structure as the main starting point. The base contains a number of eating options, and shops etc. Most groups will head straight up the Schwarzwandbahn gondola to get close to the Gamskogel peak before attempting the World Cup run. However, the good news is that there is a lovely winding blue run back down from the peak that meets up with a number of other red runs so regardless of your ability level you will be able to descend the hill without any major issues. Also feeding out close to the base station are 3 other chair lifts plus the Rosskopfbahn gondola that will whisk skiers up to the Rosskopf peak and the long blue and red runs back to the base or down the other side to Flachauwinkl.

The Flachauwinkl side of the mountain is usually quieter and well worth the visit. Once in Flachauwinkl a short hop across the car park gets you onto the aptly named Sunshine Shuttle and then onto the Family Shuttle. As you would guess from the names Flachauwinkl is very family orientated and the mainly blue runs are fabulous play grounds for new skiers. The resort also boasts one of the best half-pipes & super pipes in the valley plus the superb Absolut Snowpark and the Chill House mountain hut for refuelling both mind and body. From the top of the Mooskopf peak you can ski down to Kleinarl, the runs are a little more testing but are well worth the effort. From Kleinarl you can jump on the free ski bus that will take you down to the lifts at Wagrain. You can be assured that our instructors will ensure that you are well looked after and explore as much of this great area as possible.
