Chalets in Katschberg-Aineck
Tucked up between the authentic Austrian villages of St Margarethen and St Michael im Lungau, we find one of the best ski resorts in Austria, Katschberg-Aineck. This ski resort (varying between 1,100 and 2,200 metres in height) is ideal for families who are looking for an all-round winter sports destination but who are not keen on mass tourism and long queues at the ski lifts. With 70 km of prepared slopes and 16 lifts, Katschberg-Aineck is highly recommended, for both novices and advanced skiers. The long descent to St Margarethen (6 km) in particular is well worth the effort! The special Lungo ski pass also gives access to nearby ski resorts, including Grosseck-Speiereck, with a total of 300 km, as well as 200 km of cross-country skiing runs.

In the Katschberg-Aineck resort, you have a choice of 2 ski passes: the regular pass and the Lungo ski pass. If you are not going to leave this ski resort, the regular ski pass is your best option. However, the Lungo ski pass offers unlimited skiing. It also gives you access to all Lungau ski resorts, including the nearby Grosseck Speiereck & Obertauern. This means you are not tied to a single ski resort, allowing you to explore other slopes. The difference in price is negligible.
Ski pass holders can travel throughout the Lungau region. For more information about the routes taken by the ski bus, see below.
