Hochkrimml at 1600m elevation – snow safe place to start your winter activities into the Zillertal Arena or cross-country ski-tracks.
Your vacation apartment offers easy access to several winter activities: the comfy access into the Zillertal Arena, biggest skiing area around is right in front of your door step. On skiers or boards onto the slopes, cross-country skiing around the corner, or snowshoeing – you decide. Our ski region offers Austrias longest ski slope. Collecting difference in altitude? Then ski down the 10km slopes and 1930 meters in altitude in one go.
Out of the apartment and right into the fun:
Hochkrimml is an easy going entry point into one of the biggest ski areas in Austria. The location could not be better: you can buy your tickets, rent your equipment, book a ski or snowboard course and more all within 100 meters from the apartment. That way, you could even avoid big groups of people and instead have your lunch in the apartment. There is also an Apres-Ski bar, and the transportation with buses is free of charge to several points in the ski area (Königsleiten, Gerlos, Krimml)
The area is especially liked by younger people and those with young blood in their veins: 5 ski movie spots, 4 speed checking stations, 4 photo points – visit all of them and you can become the next Arena Champion with a bit of luck.
If you prefer ski touring, you can start your adventure right in front of the apartment in the beautiful nature off the beaten track. The actionpark Kreuzwiese offers Bagjumping, where a huge soft air cushion offers a soft landing. Free Styler usually have to try it out :-).
Prefer a sledge? Then you’ll have several options, as for example:
- Comfortable: Right in front of your house… several times a week you can take a skidoo uphill. The toboggan run will take you down through the trees right in front of your apartment. A wonderful fun for young and old! You can also rent out a sledge at the Filzsteinalm Restaurant just next to the apartment for a small change.
- Prefer a little longer? Try out Hainzenberg’s toboggan run down the Gerlosstein. A 7km run – and illuminated, sometimes until 1:00am – so what’s keeping you?
- Ultra: Use your Zillertal Arena ski pass and hop onto the Smaragd cables in Neukirchen/ Bramberg. You should rent out a robust sledge right at the valley station. A normal one will not do. You start your 14km long experience, illuminated at night. A world record! Highlight: The half way bar “Zwischenzeit” awaits you for a drink.
Hiking in the winter: So many options, so many options…. You can start right in front of the apartment in the high moor area. So drift away and enjoy the mountain pastures that await you.
