We’ll gladly tell you what awaits you on the snow-covered Sun Terrace and how you can a bit closer to heaven.

Small but nice: The lifts of the Salzburg Sun Terrace are the starting point for your cosy, family ski holiday in Pongau. Several downhills particularly suited for beginners and families with children await you beyond the loud hustle and bustle of a giant skiing area. A total of over ten kilometres of excellently prepared slopes, four lifts and a babylift await you. Here you can learn how to ski with ease and in peace.

Winter hiking and snowshoeing

Winter on the Salzburg Sun Terrace also means peace, cosiness and nature enjoyment. The perfect combination of snow and sun invites you to delightful winter hiking in SalzburgerLand. Over 100 km of excellently groomed and snow-cleared paths connect the three villages of the holiday region with each other. The Sun Terrace bus takes you to the starting point of your favourite hike in no time. Be enchanted by the glorious panorama between mountains and valleys and cap off your trip with a rest stop in a warm inn. A hot cup of tea is already waiting for you. Looking for a winter hiking alternative? We recommend snowshoeing in Salzburg. Put on your snowshoes and reach even more remote spots and be rewarded with fantastic views. You can rent snowshoes from the tourism office, where you can also set up guided snowshoe hikes during your winter holidays in SalzburgerLand.

Cross-country skiing on perfectly marked runs

Hardly anything burns as many calories per hour as cross-country skiing. You’ll quickly feel much lighter with the right training regimen. Cross-country skiing in Salzburg also clears the mind and helps you see things more clearly, gain new perspectives and rid yourself of daily pressures. 47 km of runs, 30 km of which are tracked specifically for skating, await you on the Salzburg Sun Terrace. We recommend our Rundloipe to beginners and connoisseurs. It is only 1 km long and illuminated – ideal for a slightly different view of the holiday region. Take cross-country lessons to find your way around these two thin skis in no time – also suitable for experienced, athletic cross-country skiers with professional ambitions.

Other winter activities on the Sun Terrace

That’s not all your winter holidays in the SalzburgerLand have in store for you by a long shot! The Salzburg Sun Terrace is known for its active variety, and that also applies in the cold season. For example, we accompany you onto everything but thin ice. The illuminated ice skating rink in Schwarzach, and the frozen Lake Goldegg with Goldegg Castle as an impressive backdrop are worth a visit. In addition, there are several curling rinks in the region. Similarly relaxing: horse-drawn carriage rides through the deeply snow-covered Sun Terrace scenery. The Astenlift is home to fun tobogganing tours for all ages. The run is illuminated in the evening, toboggans can be rented on site. The fitness centre in St. Veit and the thermal spas in nearby Gastein Valley are equally sporty and relaxing.
