Snow Space Salzburg in Ski amadé

We are and will remain enthusiastic winter sports enthusiasts. This is obvious, because from our ski cellar it is only about 100 meters to the Alpendorf valley station. The 100% snow-making Snow Space Salzburg with its 70 lifts, 210 kilometers of slopes and 85 huts is at our feet. That’s fun. Not least because this winter sports paradise between Flachau, Wagrain, Flachau-Winkl-Kleinarl and St. Johann also has good freeriding opportunities, the largest fun park in Austria, lots of hits for kids and the “12 Peaks Trophy”. Look forward to it and ask Hansi for insider tips. Our junior boss is a state-certified ski instructor and knows the “Best of Snow Space” like the back of his hand.

Your winter in St. Johann im Pongau

The Oberforsthof is located at 800 meters above sea level in the middle of nature and at the same time right next to the ski slope. On top of that, the center of St. Johann and beautiful Salzburg are only a stone’s throw away. So you can enjoy the winter with us in all conceivable variations. Whether it’s a romantic stroll through the city in winter, hiking in untouched nature or sporting action – everything is possible. And without much hesitation.

So nice, the ski amadé

Our local ski area, the Snow Space Salzburg, is part of the XXL ski area ski amadé. That means you can also discover the Schladming-Dachstein, Gastein, Hochkönig and Großarltal ski areas with your lift pass. You should definitely use this option, because each area has its own special charm and is absolutely worth the short journey. So look forward to a total of 270 lifts and 780 kilometers of slopes and enjoy this ultimate winter sports freedom to the fullest.
