The skiing area Großeck-Speiereck is an ideal family skiing area with many blue and red slopes and is therefore also suitable for beginners.

About the ski resorts

Here you are spoilt for choice. The Lungau alone offers three ski resorts in the immediate vicinity, each with its own special charm. Großeck-Speiereck offers a lot of relatively gentle terrain at a snow-sure altitude, Fanningberg impresses with short distances and some fast descents, Katschberg-Aineck offers many slopes in the medium difficulty range. If you can't get enough, Obertauern has another 100 kilometres of slopes waiting for you.

Ski area Großeck-Speiereck

The area around Mauterndorf is modern, but yet also conveys a romantic atmosphere. There is a very fast cable car, modern chairlifts, beautiful slopes and almost no waiting times! After a strenuous and active day of skiing, you can enjoy your après-ski in the various umbrella bars and ski huts. The actual skiing area of Mauterndorf, Großeck-Speiereck, reaches from 1,100 to 2,400 metres. It is therefore very snow-sure and very pleasant to ski due to the high sunshine. The area has slopes with a total length of 50km. Half of the slopes are blue, one-third red and the rest black. The 4.5km-long descent to Mauterndorf certainly offers the most intense experience.
