Skiing in Matrei & Kals am Großglockner, Austria

Great view

Life Hopping

I have been wanting to ski in the Großglockner Resort Kals-Matrei for a while. It is only about 20 minutes away from Lienz and is a slightly bigger resort than the Zettersfeld/Hochstein resort we have here. image-15

We arrived in Matrei early and although the lift doesn’t officially open until 9am we were on it by 8:45. The resort has two sides to it, that of Matrei and that of Kals and is connected by a gondola. Overall it was an awesome place to ski. It isn’t a huge resort, but we found enough runs to entertain us from 9am to about 4pm with a brief stop for lunch and then later another for a cheeky beer.

It may have been because most people had gone back to work or school, but we didn’t queue once for any of the lifts and we had pretty much every piste to ourselves before…
