The Grossglockner/Heiligenblut Ski Area

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.

Powder snow & ultimate freedom in the Grossglockner/Heiligenblut Freeride Arena

The sun is dazzling in a perfect blue sky. The air is crisp and cold; last night brought a new layer of fresh snow. We take the first cable-car of the day, hoping to be the first to reach the mountains. So far, there is no-one in the ski area apart from workers and safety officers, ensuring smooth runs in the new snow. You feel the biting cold on your face, and as soon as you put on your skis you know that your off-piste dreams are about to come true.
