A selection of attractive special offers from the Mostviertel accommodation providers means that a day on the slopes or a ski holiday for the whole family is still affordable, even in times when household budgets are tight. A recent survey by the consumer affairs magazine „Konsument“ confirms that prices in the Mostviertel ski areas are especially family-friendly. Not to mention the extra plus of a short, stress-free journey.

 A mountain with flair: Annaberg

Annaberg is a winter sports paradise boasting 20 kilometres of ski runs and 9 lifts. Experienced skiers and snowboarders carve out their turns on the challenging FIS-grade runs and mogul slopes. Families and beginners appreciate the easy, gentle slopes served by the Reidl lifts, which also offer floodlit skiing (dates on request). The team from Annaberg Ski School provides expert tuition for the youngsters.

Pure pleasure: the Gemeindealpe

With 14 kilometres of runs, the Gemeindealpe in the Mariazell region offers superlative skiing for beginners and alpine aficionados alike.

Confident skiers enjoy the challenging steep slope right next to the top station of the chairlift, while the less experienced go for the blue/red run. Another attractive option for novices is the 7 km family run, which detours around the steep slope.
