Skiing in the Grossglockner/Heiligenblut Ski Area – face to face with the Grossglockner

The sun is out, the air is freezing cold; the powder snow has covered the world in a myriad of glittering ice crystals. If you’re thinking ‘photo opportunity’, you are spot-on. Vast, snow-covered mountainsides, perfectly groomed pistes, feathery powder snow – and in the background, the pyramid shape of the 3789-metre-high Grossglockner, Austria’s highest mountain. An outing in the Grossglockner/Heiligenblut Ski Area is a fantastic experience, not just for winter sports enthusiasts, but also for photographers, nature lovers, and anyone with an appreciation for truly breathtaking views.
