This isn’t the biggest resort, but most visitors are locals and as such it is really affordable. Despite that, most staff are English speaking and really friendly and helpful. The ski school is great and has a lovely feel to it. There are only 3...More

My day here was awesome! Skiing was great: I like the black 5a slope ♥, the lifts are not new, but they are functional. I totally love the view from the top of Hochkar! Restaurants are also good and everybody is friendly and kind.

It is a skiresort in Austria. We visited the place in summer, great hiking and mountainbiking area. We recommend the guided tour in the cave at the Hochkar. That was amasing. Chris

The ski lift is great as it has an extra shade that protects you from the wind. The newly built bridge gives you the impression like you are in an Indiana Jones movie and the short, 15 minute walk to the top (1808 m) is...More

The resort is generally English speaking but not particularly geared to English visitors. You could argue that this is a good thing. A really good ski school and short queues for the lifts. Quite a charming small resort. Great to bring the family but not...More

This is not a world class resort but it is an enjoyable mom and pop ski area - good for half a day or so. No true lodge, mostly little cafes in the hotel and ski rental place. Great views of the mountains when you...More

Relatively small and over-seeable skiing area. Good capacity of lifts with short waiting times. Good diversity of slopes which gives possibility to adjust as (kids) skiing skills develop during stay. Good choice of restaurants on the mountain. Would not recommend for longer stay for advanced...More
