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!

Culinary joys at the mountain restaurants and huts

Snowshoeing is an adventure in nature, and it’s great for your body too.

However, it’ll also make you expend a lot of energy. How convenient that the countless hosts at the huts of Ski amadé are serving their guests delicious hearty meals. From a rustic Styrian Brettljause (cold cuts and cheese served on a wooden board) to a warming soup, there’s lots to choose from. Just plop down at a table and let the hosts treat you to their specialities!
