Ski touring & winter hiking 

You can go on a ski tour at the Postalm as well as on the Mountain Katrin right next to the town Bad Ischl. Since the slopes on the mountain has been closed for skiing, ski touring enthusiasts discovered this mountainside for winter wandering. You enjoy a 4 km long tour and get over 900m of altitude difference

You go uphill from the valley station across the former downhill slope. Halfway through the tour you can decide if you want to follow the slope or if you go left to the alp Katrin Alm. It is recommended to take the tour to the Katrin Alm because with a great amount of fresh snow the tour via the former slope is dangerous through avalanches.

The owner of the hut on the mountain Katrin, Mr. Erwin Lechner, tries to prepare a track for the wanderers but this isn’t an official slope nor a route for a ski tour.
That means there aren’t any safty precautions and you are responsible for yourself.
Our tip: take an LVS-device (Avalanche transceivers), a sensor and a shovel with you. An Opportunity to visit a mountain hut is the alp hut Katrin Almhütte!

Sledding Fun at Wolfgangsee

Sledding fun at Wolfgangsee and in the Salzkammergut region, adventurous descents are guaranteed with the many options available, as long as the snow conditions allow it.

Sledding at Postalm

  • For those who don’t enjoy skiing, sledding at Postalm offers a great time.
  • The length of the track is approximately 800 meters. You can, of course, also rent a sled, or as they say in Austria, a “Schlitten”!

Naturrodelbahn Weißwand

  • An unforgettable experience and lots of fun for the young and young at heart are guaranteed on the toboggan ride through the snowy landscape down to the valley!
  • You can reach Weißwand by foot in about 30 minutes from St. Gilgen.
    Via the district of Laim, up to the edge of the forest, continuing along the ski slope and following the signs that say “Zur Weißwand,” the somewhat steep ascent towards Weißwand begins. Once you’ve reached the top, you can enjoy a fantastic view of St. Gilgen and the tranquil Wolfgangsee.
  • For refreshment, a stop at an inn is recommended. Be sure to try the homemade local specialties.
  • If you don’t have your own sled, you can rent one for a fee of EUR 2. The sleds are for 2 persons and are collected again by arrangement.
  • Groups are requested to make reservations in advance.
  • The toboggan run is illuminated in the evening. For our young guests, there’s a tobogganing meadow in St. Gilgen (Steinklüftstraße – below Hotel Hollweger).

Sledding Fun at Gasthof Kleefeld in Strobl

  • With a 1.5 km long natural toboggan run illuminated at night, we offer one of the most beautiful sled tracks in the Salzkammergut region. To ensure safe descents at all times, our toboggan run can be artificially snow-covered.
  • The idyllic ascent to Kleefeld through the snowy winter landscape is just as much a part of the sledding experience as the rewarding stop at Gasthof Kleefeld for warming up and socializing!
  • Even if you don’t bring your own sled, nothing stands in the way of your untroubled sledding pleasure! Plenty of rental sleds are available for you.
  • After the ride, simply leave the sled at the end of the track.
