During the winter months the village of Alpbach is an excellent starting point from which to explore the Ski Juwel Alpbachtal Wildschönau, a large family-friendly ski resort popular with everyone from beginners to experts.
The resort can be accessed from Alpbach using either the Wiedersbergerhornbahn or the Pöglbahn cable car, with further lifts and cable cars then connecting skiers and snowboarders to the pistes on the Schatzberg mountain and at Wildschönau. All in all the resort is made up of four mountains and two valleys, offering snowsure slopes and plenty of pistes for all ages and abilities. Snowboarders will want to check out the funparks and snowparks, while those with the need for speed can take on the race courses. There are children's clubs and a special practice area for children with gentle slopes and easy-to-use lifts. Across all four mountains making up the Ski Juwel Alpbachtal Wildschönau you will find huts and restaurants serving food. Last but not least, the Freeride Top Zone located on the Wiedersberger Horn mountain is an excellent place to grab some fresh powder.
