Explore the small but nice downhill and cross-country skiing regions in Eastern Styria with just one card. The Eastern Styria WinterCard not only covers the Almenland Nature Park and Joglland-Waldheimat regions, it also offers a new kind of freedom and individuality for locals and guests.
The Eastern Styria WinterCard is available at six different stations. Three versions of the card are offered: Choose from the typical season card and two flexible card types, one for 5 days from the season card and one for 7 days from the season card. Eastern Styria’s downhill and cross-country skiing regions have specialised in families. Winter playgrounds, ski runs for kids, magic carpets, downhill and cross-country skiing courses – for beginners and those who want to improve their technique – are offered along with equipment rentals and service.
We believe that tomorrow’s world champions may start their skiing career in the Oststeiermark. Even now, they expertly zoom down the slopes. The Eastern Styria WinterCard is accepted by the following downhill and cross-country skiing regions.
It is often said that happiness comes from within. A skiing holiday in Eastern Styria confirms: It comes from outside. Even in winter. With our extra-long summer and two mild shoulder seasons, ours is short but therefore twice as nice. Our skiing regions in and around the Almenland Nature Park are ideal for children and older first-time skiers. The slopes allow beginners to start out slowly. Take a skiing course if you need help.
No equipment? No problem. You can rent everything you need for the winter sport on site. If you prefer to bring your own hardware to the slopes, you can have it checked.
More and more people are falling in love with cross-country skiing as an alternative to downhill skiing. One can only speculate as to why. Perhaps because of the smooth gliding that lets you get into a flow. Or the cross-country routes that let you see more of what’s around you. Or the steady speed that soothes and calms you. Whatever it may be, give it a try. Beginners and experts get their money’s worth on the Almenland cross-country ski runs or the Joglland cross-country ski run. More groomed cross-country ski runs await in Rabl-Kreuz/Waldbach and in Fischbach.
Cold winter air and sunshine along with freshly groomed downhill and cross-country ski runs guarantee a good mood. The family skiing regions and cross-country ski runs invite you to spend time outside in Austria’s garden during the winter months.
