SKI and SNOWBOARD AREAS
The Lungau Valley is a wonderful snow bowl offering altogether more than 300km of downhill ski slopes divided over 4 different areas and serviced by more than 60 lifts. Each area offers 100% snow sure skiing during the high seasons with snow making machines in place to support our regular heavy snowfall.
The main skiing season here begins at the end of December and offers snow-sure skiing up till mid-April each year. In Obertauern season starts at the end of November and doesn't finish until the beginning of May - that's nearly half a year on the slopes!
The area is amazing and in St Michael at the heart of the valley, we remain mostly untouched by the pressures of tourism. People are friendly, accidents are few and the lifts are quiet - a queue is very unusual here.
There are a variety of runs to suit all levels of skier and snowboarder, from gentle nursery slopes to the challenging "Direttissima" - a steep black run in the Katschberg area.
The valley is home to some brilliant ski schools, including the very family friendly St Michael Schischule with head offices in the town centre, and the multi-talented Firn Sepp based in St Margarethen providing everything from snow shoe tours and ski tour guides to racing school and snowboard lessons.
To make your holiday even easier to enjoy (as if you would need help) we support an on-site ski and snowboard equipment hire service with Black Magic Rentals. This is a professional hire company that will bring the equipment to you at Haus Bellevue, fit it at your convenience and then at the end of your stay, collect
it from the accommodation. No shops, No fuss, No worries!
