The region around Lake Achensee is ideal for beginners and families. It is home to three ski resorts offering great pistes and wonderful views of Tirol's largest lake.
The Rofan ski resort has slopes up to 1,840 metres above sea level and can be easily reached using the cable car leaving from Maurach. This skiing area on the Gschöllkopf mountain offers pistes catering for all abilities, with some excellent ski touring options near the top of the resort. The Christlum resort north of Lake Achensee has blue, red and black slopes up to 1,800 metres above sea level. Located in the Karwendel Mountains, it has its own funpark and a long valley descent with wonderful views of the lake below. Last but not least, the Zwölferkopf resort in Pertisau is ideal for families and has a large beginners' area next to the lifts at the bottom of the resort.
