Winter at Gerlosstein
Season 21.12.2019 - 29.03.2020
The small but beautiful family ski area Gerlosstein belongs to the Zillertal Arena and lies above Hainzenberg near Zell am Ziller. The ski area with the Gerlosstein cable car in Hainzenberg is far away from the crowds.
Excellently groomed red, black and blue pistes, a descent over 900 vertical meters and a beginner slope with magic carpet make the skiers' hearts beat faster. Experience pure away from the crowds, without long queues at the lifts, crowded restaurants ect ..
Sledge fun on the longest, illuminated track in the Zillertal
Part of a proper winter holiday is a sledge ride.
The longest natural toboggan run in the Zillertal starts right at the front door. Seven winding kilometers are waiting for you. The toboggan run is open daily from 10:00 to 16:30 and with a valid ski pass for free. In the evening you have the possibility to start directly at 19:30. You can be the first on the freshly prepared and fully illuminated toboggan run. From Monday to Saturday there is nothing in the way of the evening sledging fun. The cable car times are to be observed from 19:45 to 21:15. After the 7-minute ride on the cable car you can end the rest of the evening comfortably with a homemade schnapps or a glass of wine. We gladly organize a sledge for you.
ATTENTION: SUNDAY EVENING NO CABLE CAR OPERATION
El Dorado for ski tourers
Fantastic slopes, untouched nature, far away from the turbulent skiing, you climb the white peaks. Enjoy the unforgettable moments when you are at the top, and make your own trail through the sparkling powder snowfields.
Several beautiful ski tour routes start right at our house. Including some that are ideal for beginners. A few possible route suggestions: Gerlossteinwand, Geiskopf and Torhelm. The meeting point of all “ski tour lovers” who start at the valley station of the Gerlossteinbahn is, however, the Arbiskogel. Every Monday and Wednesday there is a ski tour evening. An exchange of experiences between young and old in a relaxed atmosphere.
There are other ways to glide down the slope than skiing & boarding.
The new snow fun in the ski resort Gerlosstein is called "Snowtubing". On two specially prepared slopes (each about 200m), all winter fans can try this fun!
The best part: the tubing track is free and can be used as often as you like.
Have fun and action guaranteed!
Daily from 09:00 to 16:00.
Wintertime at Mountain Adventure area Gerlosstein
Skiing fun away from the crowds
Wintertime is snow sports season, whether skiing, tobogganing, snowtubing, cross-country skiing, ice skating, snowshoeing or ski touring. Movement in nature is announced. A bit of apres ski is also part of it, mulled wine and Jagatee as well as cozy hours at the tiled stove.
Skiing, where others have to wait for the ski bus and ski lift first. Just get out of the house and on the skis or toboggan, you can hardly get any closer to the slopes. An eldorado for every passionate skier is the Gerlosstein ski area with its quaint huts, which entice with family flair, home-made specialties and cozy terraces and lounges.
A beginners slope with magic carpet, red, black and blue slopes as well as the valley descent over 900 meters of altitude on perfectly groomed slopes, leave nothing to be desired.
Skiing away from the crowds, enjoy the sunset at the Arbiskogel the meeting point of skiers in the ski resort Gerlosstein. Whether cozy round, or apres ski party, in Liftstüberl is always something going on!

Little flakes wonderful, delicately crystallized,
To interweave clean, star-like,
Arranged in fluffy shapes,
How fairy creatures float down.
Natural magic in the highest perfection,
Splendor and beauty of creation,
Everything sinks into subdued silence,
White wonder devours the world.
