Flachau has a World Cup run (the Alpine Ski World Cup has been held here since 1993), floodlit night-skiing, family runs and nursery slopes. There are also nursery slopes at the base of the Flying Mozart gondola in Wagrain, and at the mid-station in Flachau. Despite being small, the Monte Popolo ski area in Eben im Pongau has lots of family facilities including a designated children’s area, a terrain park, and a timed run.
However, the area should prove enormously enjoyable for the vast majority of skiers. Lifts are mainly fast and modern, allowing you to travel a considerable distance from scenic valley to valley in a single day. The postbus service is efficient, but it makes sense to keep track of time when venturing far from home.
A total of 15 snowparks are available and are constantly being expanded. The challenging new skicross course in Flachauwinkl-Kleinarl has sharp turns, banks and moguls.
