Mountain Railways in Winter

Great accessible location, reliable snowfall, and a real insider´s tip for an attractive, great value winter holiday - the skiing regions of the Viennese Alps provide well-maintained pistes of all levels of difficulty for both beginners and ambitious winter sports enthusiasts. It’s possible to have fun in the snow without skis, such as tobogganing and snowshoeing.

Fun for children in the snow

Learning to ski does not have to be difficult - and it’s really good fun in the beginner-friendly skiing areas in the Viennese Alps. As an example, the Familienskiland der Erlebnisarena in St. Corona skiing area provides reliable snow and ideal terrain, whilst magic carpets and a platter lift make those first attempts easier. Tobogganing or the snow fortress also guarantee plenty of fun. Equipment hire and the winter sports school ensure a stress-free family day out on the skis. Fun on the piste - with and without snow - can be found on the practice lift and the padded slope at Wunderwiese mit Puchi`s Kinderland in Losenheim near Puchberg am Schneeberg.

Challenging deep-snow skiing

If you like virgin snow or alpine challenges, then the Schneeberg chairlift in Losenheim is  the perfect spot for you The slope is not prepared and offers skiers plenty of variations of heading down the slope on virgin snow. The upper station is the start of many attractive routes. 

Tobogganing and snowshoeing

Snowshoeing in the Viennese Alps ensures magical winter forests, shimmering snow, and rosy cheeks. The Rax Aerial Ropeway means you can conveniently reach these snowy and remote mountains. Snowshoeing is easy to learn, whilst equipment can be hired at little cost whilst being ready to use. You can also go tobogganing and snowshoeing at the Familienskiland St. Corona complex. The adjacent Wexl Lounge is a great spot for delicious food afterwards.
