Turracher Höhe- Winterparadise

TURRACHER HÖHE – WINTERPARADISE

Between November and early May the varied winter wonderland Turracher Höhe with its snow assured slopes, reaching up to 2,205 m in altitude, attracts visitors with scenic cross-country trails, winter walking paths and a mountain lake which turns into an ice skating rink in winter.

Among the many advantages of the resort are its high altitude location and manageable size offering excellent conditions no matter whether you are skiing, boarding, cross-country skiing, winter and snowshoe hiking, walking, ski touring, ice skating or night tobogganing. Those looking for more riding fun away from the wide and impeccably groomed slopes will find that extra kick on the Funslope Turracher Höhe – which is one of the largest of its kind worldwide with a total length of 850 m! Upgraded with new features, the Snowpark, which was built last year, is sure to excite rookies and pros alike.
