Deep snow fun away from the pistes
The Hohe Tauern National Park is also a paradise for those who enjoy skiing tours and free-ride skiing. Deep snow dreams come true at the Weißsee Glacier World in Uttendorf. Starting from the lifts at the Grünsee, Tauernmoossee halfway station to the Medelzkopf summit station, slopes are on offer for free-riders at every difficulty level. Freeride tours such as the Olympiahang, the Saurüssl and NEVER COME BACK guarantee fun and action in the powder snow in the heart of the Austrian Alps.
Snowshoe walks & cross-country fun in the Hohe Tauern National Park
Activities in the great outdoors are very popular. Snowshoe walks are another opportunity to enjoy the magical and beautiful winter's landscape. The Hohe Tauern National Park also offers superb conditions for cross-country skiers and skaters and many kilometres of cross-country trails in the midst of fantastic natural scenery, with views of the mighty peaks of the three-thousand-metre mountains.
Sledging fun for the whole family
The tracks cut through the spray and the snow as the wind hits your face: a tobogganing excursion in the Hohe Tauern National Park is a great outdoor experience for adults and children. The lodges alongside the tobogganing runs are an invitation to stop for refreshments and to top up your energy levels over traditional Pinzgau specialities such as Kasnocken (a traditional dumplings dish) or Kaspressknödeln (a traditional beef dish). Fans of sledging who are feeling cold can warm up again over mulled wine or (child-friendly) punch. Feeling strengthened, and after another action-packed round of tobogganing, it's time to head back to the valley.
