Mountain World.

The sun transforms the winter's white snow cover into a brightly sparkling sea of diamonds. Have you ever wondered what it means to see a sight you never want to forget? Experience winter in Mauterndorf, and you will know precisely what we mean. And whether your “thing” is skiing, snowboarding, cross-country skiing, winter hiking, tobogganing, or ski touring, we are definitely the destination for you.

Thanks to its healthful elevations, you'll find excellent snow conditions here well into late spring. Furthermore, Mauterndorf is located in the Lungau ski region as well as the “Lungo” ski region, allowing for a variety-filled skiing holiday in Austria. This also applies to families with children since the ski areas are considered especially family-friendly thanks to numerous blue-rated hills.

Located approximately 1 km from the center of Mauterndorf, the Grosseck-Speiereck ski area is exceptionally popular with families and recreational skiers. Thanks to high elevations up to 2,400 meters, it promises reliable snow conditions from late November until well after Easter!

Grosseck-Speiereck “Adventure Mountain” can be accessed both from Mauterndorf and St. Michael. It boasts meticulously groomed pistes as high as 2,400 meters above sea level.
