Ski Touring

Ski touring is all about succumbing to the longing to get away from the better-known hills and find harmony with the mountains and nature. After an ascent that saps your strength, you are rewarded by an exhilarating ride down hillsides covered deep in pristine snow.

With its seven side valleys and a broad selection of mountain and high-peaks tours, the Lungau region is an El Dorado for ski tourers. Enjoying the meteorological benefits of alpine elevations over 1200 m, the Lungau is an ideal base for magical ski tours ranging from easy to expert.

Preber in Tamsweg
Especially in springtime, the 2,740 m-high Preber is a real magnet, affording magnificent views ranging from the Grossglockner to the Karawanken.
