Perched high above Lake Achensee, the small Rofan ski resort is the ideal place for a relaxing day's skiing. Its sunny location also makes it popular with ski touring enthusiasts.
It is just a five-minute cable car ride from the village of Maurach on the southern shore of Lake Achensee up into the heart of the Rofan ski resort in the mountains high above. The top of the cable car at 1,840 metres above sea level is the highest point in this small, family-friendly ski area. However, the area also has plenty to offer experienced alpinists keen to explore the peaks in the region. While the experts head off piste, the network of well-groomed trails catering for all abilities will keep beginner, intermediate and advanced skiers and snowboarders entertained. The sunny descent all the way down into the valley is particularly popular with beginners. There are dedicated practice areas in Maurach and next to the top of the cable car. Children will enjoy the "Ski-Kinderland".
