Winter Activities

Whether ice skating, speed skating, ice golfing, skiing, cross-country skiing or tobogganing, … at Lake Weissensee every winter sports enthusiast will find his or her sport. Here you will find individual sporting opportunities:

The largest prepared natural ice surface in the world is waiting for you… From mid-December to the beginning of March the lake is frozen over and a sheet of ice up to 40 cm thick forms. Not only ice skaters but also horse-drawn sleighs and walkers cavort on it. You will find ice-skating rinks, ice-stick rinks and ice-hockey courts and a rink for speed skaters. Ice sticks available in the house. On request, we are happy to organise a joint curling session with the gentlemen of the house on the house’s own curling rink at the boathouse.

At Lake Weissensee you will find 50 km of double-track trails and up to 15 km of skating trails, all of which have been awarded the cross-country skiing seal of approval. A practice trail is available for beginners. If you prefer to go uphill, you can have fun on the 10 km Franz-Josephs-Höhe trail or make a detour to the Tschabitscher at 1074 m above sea level. The Alpl cross-country ski trail takes you to the Naggler Alm at 1400 m above sea level. The Naggler Alm is also open in winter. The Schwarzenbacher cross-country skiing school (Tel. +43 664 1315533) offers cross-country skiing courses for people with a wide range of previous knowledge.

The ski area at Weissensee is ideal for families. The slopes are well prepared, ski courses are organised at the Schwarzenbacher Ski School (Tel. +43 664 1315533) & at BOBO-Kinderland.
The ski bus starts right in front of the house and takes you comfortably to the mountain railway valley station and also to the Seewiesenlift. Near the bus stop at the mountain railway you have the possibility to store your skis and ski boots in a ski depot. The biggest skiing area nearby is the „Nassfeld“.
A free ski bus takes you (approx. 1h ride) once in the morning to the „Milleniums-Express“ (valley station) and brings you back in the afternoon.
You will find our drying room for your winter sports equipment in the heating house.

If you like to walk with snowshoes, you can take the mountain railway up and go for walks from there. Or you can sign up for a guided snowshoe hike at the Schwarzenbacher Ski School (Tel. +43 (0) 664/1315533).

The toboggan run from the Naggler Alm is about 4 km long. We also have some toboggans in the house.

At Intersport Alpensport (next to the Spar market; Tel. +43 4713 25943) in Techendorf it is possible to rent skating and cross-country skiing equipment. Your equipment can also be refurbished here if you wish. You can get toboggans, ski & snowboard equipment at Intersport at the valley station of the mountain railway.
