We have a Salzburg Super Ski card for the winter, which gives us access to 22 major ski regions of the Salzburgerland and a few in neighbouring ski areas like Tirol. If you look at a map of Austria from East to west that covers an area of approx 150kms as the crow flies. In terms of skiable terrain….that’s 2550kms of skiing enjoyment!
We have ‘liked’ the Hochkonig Facebook page and received a status updated the other day, advertising their “Konigstour”. We hadn’t attempted the Hochkonig ski area yet so thought it was about time to get out and see it.
The ski area for this resort is huge and the movie doesn’t do it justice. We where originally a bit ho-hum when we saw the video as we thought that the runs looked a bit easy and didn’t seem that challenging. Boy where we wrong!
Well all I can just say is we attempted it! We got 1/2 way through before we realised we better turn back as we didn’t want to miss the last chair lift back to the car park. Today was a rest day…our bodies and legs needed it.
Yesterday was a beautiful day, with clear blue skis and 100% visibility, so perfect conditions and the scenery was SMAZING….looking forward to doing the other half when we think we can handle it….he he
pics to come later….here’s the video from their site
