Twice the fun on the slopes

Skiing in the ERZBERG LEOBEN region

Skiing and snowboarding on numerous kilometres of ski runs ranging from beginner-friendly to challenging: The small, yet beautiful ski resorts around Erzberg offer a great variety of downhill runs.

Off-piste, freeriders feel right at home in the region’s powder snow. For a first impression of the snow conditions on site, we recommend taking a look at the webcams and the weather for the coming days. Then your winter adventures can start!

Skiing on Präbichl

Präbichl ski resort extends all the way up to over 1,600 metres above sea level. Skiing enthusiasts can expect not only 20 kilometres of perfectly groomed slopes but also breathtaking scenic views. From the sunny slopes, you’ll have a wonderful view of the Eisenerz Alps and the Eisenerzer and Vordernberger valleys, for instance.

The Funslope is a ski run of a different kind and great fun for family members of all ages. On the course, one extraordinary obstacle follows the next: bumps, small jumps and a giant snow snail including a tunnel are waiting to be discovered. Along the way, you’ll meet the resort’s mascot, "Slopy", and come across a high-five element with an extra sound effect.

Alone or in a group: Learning to ski or snowboard is a piece of cake thanks to the support of experienced instructors. Alpfox Ski School on Präbichl offers lessons for all skill levels and ages. Convenient: If you book a course, you’ll get a 20 per cent discount on rental equipment.

Speaking of rental equipment: Skis, snowboards, sledges and anything else you need for a fun day on the slopes can be rented at the Präbichl/Vordernberg valley station. If you want to book your equipment as you plan your holiday, simply make an online reservation for the desired gear.
