The slopes in the East Tyrol are ideal for an entire family of skiers, from beginner to advanced. Zettersfeld is very close to the hotel with sunny, wide-open slopes. Another nearby area is the Peak of the Hochstein where a Ladies World Cup is held every other year. Beginner skiers ski the lower part of the mountain while the advanced ski the top. Several other ski areas are not far away, including a glacier with skiing 10 months of the year. Superb cross-country facilities are also close-by.
