The ski areas of Lower Austria (Niederösterreich) Puchberg Salamander Mönichkirchen-Mariensee, Semmering, Annaberg, Hochkar, Lackenhof-Ötscher, Rax, St. Corona, the Gemeindealpe Mitterbach and 5 other small ski areas offer a range of slopes of 235 kilometers, with 110 ski lifts and over 20 ski schools. Thanks to the broad slopes and lifts with a large production capacity, there are no queues at the lifts and no crowded pistes. Ideal for beginners are the numerous beginner lifts and the over 100 km of blue runs, marking the low degree of difficulty. But also experienced skiers will be satisfied. The Freeride area on the Gemeindealpe, the Schneeberg or Hochkar convince many off-piste skiers and back-country fanatics. The funparks such as in Mönchkirchen-Mariensee or at the Ötscher and the World Cup slopes at Semmering create the charming but also edgy character of the Lower Austria (Niederösterreich) region. And also off the slopes you can find a large winter sports offer. Plan, for example, a ski trip to the top of the mountains Göller, Gippel and Ötscher and enjoy the fantastic view.
