Lienz ski resort

Ski resort closed

Open lifts 1/10

Blessed with plenty of sunshine throughout the season, the two ski resorts Zettersfeld and Hochstein in the mountains above Lienz in East Tirol are the perfect place to escape dark winter days. While Zettersfeld is ideal for families, Hochstein provides a challenge for advanced and expert skiers and snowboarders.

Lienz, the largest town in East Tirol, boasts 2,000 hours of sunshine per year. Little wonder that guests flock to this quiet region during the winter months to ski at the two resorts located in the mountains high above. The town itself with its pretty medieval centre is also well worth a visit.

The south-facing resort of Zettersfeld is ideal for families with children as well as snowboarders and freestyle skiers, who congregate in the Sunsite Park with its kickers and rails. The extensive network of pistes extends all the way up to 2,278 metres above sea level. Some of the best places to enjoy the fabulous views of the Dolomites are the sunny terraces outside the huts and restaurants in the resort. Zettersfeld also has a ski kindergarten and plenty of off-piste ski touring routes.

Just a few kilometres down the road, yet a world away, is the resort of Hochstein on the south-western edge of Lienz. This resort is much more suited to intermediate, advanced and expert skiers and snowboarders and regularly hosts FIS SKi World Cup races. The network of pistes is divided up into three sections which, when combined, form one of the longest runs anywhere in Tirol with 1,300 vertical metres of descent. The Hochsteinhütte hut at the top of the resort offers magnificent views. There is one lift pass covering both Zettersfeld and Hochstein.
