Even away from the slopes, Zauchensee offers top class skiing enjoyment
This area is considered a hotspot for freeriders
In addition to the famous "East" ski run of the Gamskogel, there are numerous powder runs on unspoilt slopes. These are best found together with local guides who know exactly where the perfect powder is hidden. Freeriders can get excited about top-class runs, such as the "Gamskogel East," or the ski route towards Flachauwinkl. The experience becomes perfect when the local guides show you the best and above all safest routes.
A tip about this: Check points are available at the two valley stations “Weltcuparena Zauchensee” and “Highport Flachauwinkl,” where you test out your avalanche transceiver to make sure that it is working properly.
