LAID-BACK and ACTION-PACKED - WINTERTIME FUN IN ABTENAU
In the winter sports region which includes Abtenau, winter sports fans of all ages are greeted by countless opportunities. Skiers, whether casual or ambitious, can look forward to beautifully groomed pistes and much, much more, both in Abtenau as well as the entire Dachstein West Ski Alliance:
Cross-country skiing (courses by arrangement)
Ski touring in the Tennengebirge, also with a guide
Snowshoeing, winter hiking, sledding
Horse-drawn carriage rides
Ice skating on the ice rink in the town center of Abtenau
Skiing and snowboarding on the Karkogel and Sonnleiten, in the Postalm Arena and in the Dachstein West ski region
Ski school for big and small in the unique Dachstein West ski region – only 15 min from Hotel Moisl.
With the help of a magic carpet and numerous surprises, the kids will be transformed into true pros one step at a time! This ski school is particularly handy for parents who would like to hit the slopes themselves while their kids are busy learning the basics!
You will find another option at the valley station of the Kopfbergbahn in Annaberg, where they offer childcare programs for kids.
Heated ski room for your equipment (also cross-country gear)
Free cross-country beginners' course every Tuesday from 10:30 AM to 12:30 PM (ca. end of December – ca. mid-March). Registration information is available from us right here at the reception!
Abtenau greets you with more than 35 km of cross-country ski trails which circle the town center of Abtenau. In addition to XC trails for classic as well as "skating" technique, you will also find a 1 km floodlit trail right in the center of Abtenau itself, lit up every evening and also maintained with snowmaking machines.
Exciting 3km sled rides on our local mountain, the Karkogel – only a few minutes from the hotel! Sleds and toboggans can be rented locally, next to the valley station. Until the last lift ride up the mountain at 4:15 PM, you can ride the gondola in comfort to the top of the sled run. If you are more energetic, you can also walk up to the mountain station via the newly built road (takes roughly 45 min)
Especially exciting for kids: evening tobogganing (we'll let you know once you arrive precisely when night sledding will take place!)
