Wonderful conditions for your skiing holiday in Austria
| Due to its high altitude of 1,100 m to 2,400 m, the Grosseck-Speiereck ski area in Mauterndorf is considered to be guaranteed snow. The best conditions await you from the end of November until after Easter. In the worst case scenario, however, the entire mountain can be completely covered in snow thanks to the most up-to-date snow-making equipment.
From the Mauterndorf ski centre, which can also be reached without snow chains, it’s up and away on a modern 8-person gondola cable car into the extensive ski area. Change once into a chairlift and then you quickly reach the highest point of the Grosseck-Speiereck adventure mountain, the Speiereck at 2,400 m.
Three ski lodges and four restaurants invite you to enjoy their sunny terraces and take some refreshment on the mountain. In addition to regional dishes and Salzburg specialities, dishes are also on the menu that should not be missed on a skiing holiday: such as Germknödel (sweet dumplings) or Kaiserschmarrn (sweet pancake with fruits)!
