Your winter & ski holiday close to nature in the Grossarl Valley in Salzburg

powder snow & peak views whilst skiing, cross-country skiing, horse-drawn sleigh rides. tobogganing... in  Salzburger Land

When the snowflakes gently fall over the Grossarl Valley and our farm, it's time to head for the glistening mountain landscape. Whether skiing in the 2-valleys ski area Grossarl Valley-Dorfgastein in the Ski amadé area, or cross-country skiing on the well-groomed trails or tobogganing right next to the farm – guests of all ages are well-catered for. Stomp on snowshoes through the fresh powder snow or explore the higher areas of the Grossarl Valley on backcountry skis. Due to the mountain location of our farm above Grossarl many activities away from the slopes are possible right from the doorstep. No matter whether active or relaxed - enjoy unspoilt nature on your winter and ski holiday in  Salzburger Land.
