A gentle winter sport at austria's greatest ski paradise

Are you familiar with the following situation? The air is freezing cold, and with every exhale a little cloud forms in front of your face – that’s when winter shows its true colours. A thick blanket of snow covers the mountain pastures and slopes. The snow gently crunches underneath your feet and the sun is shining from the sky. Perfect conditions for a snowshoe hike after an eventful ski day in the wondrous world of Ski amadé! 

The route network branching out in all directions at the five regions lets you enter a breathtaking alpine setting that will have you in awe. What an amazing alternative to skiing or snowboarding! With snowshoes strapped to your feet, you’ll head out into the powder snow. Because once you’ve put them on, there’s no holding back in the snow! Time to explore the mountains of Styria and the Salzburger Land region step by step. 

Let go, relax and let your mind wander!

It makes us proud that the Bürglalm is one of the few selected Salzburg ski huts that follows the footsteps of the "Via Culinaria", 8 pleasure trails through the Salzburger Land.

Gabi Bürgler created the "Moar in der Pfoad" as our special Via Culinaria dish with the 2 toque chef Jürgen Vigne from the Pfefferschiff in Söllheim near Salzburg under the title "Gourmet in the snow – the peak of pleasure".

We serve you quickly and carefully in the cozy parlors and on the sun terrace. Down-to-earth and creative things are served with many products from our region. With us you can enjoy meat, fish, vegan, vegetarian and not to forget our wonderful desserts...
