Mölltal Glacier''100% Sun, Snow, and Ski fun!'' The formula for success at the Mölltaler Glacier and the Ankogel is as simple as it is comprehensible. The 3,210 m high Mölltaler Glacier is one of Austria's most snow-secure glacier ski areas. The southern side of the Alps is statistically proven as the sunniest region in Austria. The panorama views of about 30 3,000-meter high mountains of the Hohe Tauern is unique to Austria. Lovingly referred to as ''Mölli'' by fans, Carinthia's only glacier ski area draws skiers in starting in the end of September to power out on the finest powder.
On the Mölltaler Glacier and the nearby Ankogel, you can expect to find 30 km of snow-sure pistes. Ankogel is just as challenging for aces and off-piste artists as well as for pleasure-carvers and boarders, who have long-since discovered the generous and broad pistes. The best thing about "Mölli" and Ankogel has to be that there are no waiting times for the ski lifts and no rushhours on the pistes. In both ski areas you'll experience typical Carinthian friendliness- a heart-warming combination of serenity and hospitality. Action and fun are also guaranteed with possibilities of ice skating or racing down the toboggan run. A real highlight after or instead of the sporting activities is visiting the "Tauern Bad" pool area.
The lovely resort Mallnitz provides excellent value for the price, and is thus destined for great things! At an altitude of about 1,200 m at the foot of the Ankogel (3,246 m), one of the tallest mountains in Carinthia. The infrastructure in the hospitable resort is perfectly geared toward winter holidays. With its small-town charm, Mallnitz is an ideal spot for families and those seeking relaxation.
And in culinary terms, the mountain offers total diversity. At the edge of the Mölltal Glacier at 2,800 m you'll find the highest winter garden in all of Carinthia and the panorama restaurant ''Eissee''. The enormous construction of steel and glass bethrones the so-called eternal ice, and reflects in its glass surfaces the mountain world from the Schareck over the Sonnblick all the way to the Lienzer Dolomites. The menu also ''mirrors'' the delicacies of Carinthia as well as international cuisine. This ''glass palace'' is also easily accessible for non-skiers via the Glacier Express and the Eissee gondola.
