We do not know the word ‘bored’ in Abte­nau. On skis, skates, on cross coun­try skis or in a horse-sleigh: there is so much to enjoy. In win­ter, Abte­nau belongs to Austria’s most gor­geous ski areas for the entire fam­i­ly. A mod­ern ski lift with eight cab­ins with six seats each, takes the skiers and hik­ers up to the high reach­es of the Karko­gel moun­tain range.The new­ly lit tobog­gan run is a 3-kilo­me­ter fun ride. A won­der­ful, sun­ny, 200-kilo­me­ter-long cross coun­try route keeps every­one in motion, even in the midst of winder.For the lit­tle ones there is fun to be had clos­er to home: build­ing a snow­man, sled­ding, down the slide and throw­ing snow balls. Neig­bor­ing ski instruc­tion cen­ters are ready to teach your kids the art of ski­ing.
