Ski area Werfenweng

The lift pass "Werfenweng" gives winter sports enthusiasts access to a total of 27 km of piste and nine lifts. The ski area is situated on an altitude of approx. 1,000 - 1,850 m in a side valley of Salzach and is known to be very family-friendly. Modern, area-wide snow-making systems secure skiing fun until April. Children and beginners will find their own practise area right next to the 8-person gondola Ikarus in Zaglau.

In the Zaglau-Arena ski area, Snowboarders and Skiers will also find a funpark with various obstacles that are newly shaped on a daily basis. Multiple wonderful slopes at a mostly easy to intermediate level can be found at Ladenberg (1,716 m) and Bischlinghöhe (1,834 m). In good snow conditions there are even freeriding possibilities. Two highlights are the diverse panoramic slope down to the valley station Dorfbahn Rosnerköpfl as well as the toboggan run from Strussingalm - both have a length of 6 km.

Après ski Werfenweng

Even though Werfenweng is only a small village with a comprehensible and family-friendly ski area, there are plenty après ski opportunities. In the ski area you can take your break in quaint mountain huts, and a popular meeting point before taking the last lift is, for example, the umbrella bar Bischlinghöhe. Later on you can get the party started at Eiky Treff and the Ikarus lifts' valley station and in Stoa Alm at the Dorfbahn valley station. Every now and then, the local inns have great parties so that you can extend your après ski drive until late in the evening.

All in all, Werfenweng is rather quiet in the evening. Thanks to the advanced mobility concept in resort you have many possibilities to explore the surroundings with complementary activities: you can enjoy the wintry mountain nature on cross-country skis, on a sledge, a cosy carriage ride or on a llama track. After a few rounds on the ice rink at Lake Weng you can warm up in cosy Seealmstüberl parlour.

Hiking enthusiasts will enjoy several family-friendly trails on longer or shorter routes surrounding the resort. You can hike through Wengerau's magical winter landscape, get to Tennenblick within 30 minutes or to Gamsblickalm within about an hour. On the way to this Alpine pasture you will pass, among other things, the first solar-heated hiking bench. Werfenweng is also known to be a hotspot for paragliders and hang-gliders. The ideal thermal lifts for unforgettable flying experiences can often be found at Bischling.
