Cross-country skiing

From Maria Alm over Dienten to Mühlbach and back again. The cross-country paradise of the Hochkönig stretches over 40km of prepared cross-country skiing trails. Maria Alm offers, besides the extensive cross-country skiing which is available, a night cross-country skiing trail. Whether classic or skating, here there is something for everybody. It is well known that you never stop learning. Cross-country skiing courses are also offered for beginners and advanced cross-country skiers.

Besides the cross-country skiing and the ski touring, winter hiking surrounded by the most wonderful mountains of the Hochkönig region makes for a great memory.

Skiing & snowboarding in the Hochkönig ski region

The village of Maria Alm is like a fairytale in winter.

Embedded in a blanket of white snow and where snow is guaranteed in winter. The Hochkönig ski area boasts 120 kilometres of stunning slopes and belongs to one of the largest winter sports areas in Austria. The most up to date lifts bring you up to the summit of feelings.


Every Tuesday there is a spectacular Night Show at the Simmer lift. Part of the show are: nostalgic skiers, ski demo teams, torch skiing, the giant ice bear mascot and “Ziachschlittn“ (old style sledging), and much more. To round off the evening there is a firework display. The Night Show guarantees to be an unforgettable experience.
