Quality, not quantity – for pleasurable skiing  

Excellent piste conditions thanks to snow-making facilities, enjoyable downhill runs and exciting floodlit turns: the ski resorts between Hochschwab and Semmering can match anything you might find in the major ski areas in the Alps. But it’s more family-friendly. Visitors glide to the top on chairlifts or T-bars, without any hustle and bustle. Arriving there, they can cast an eye over the summits and towns, before speeding off down the slope.
