Ski Area Wurzeralm Spital am Pyhrn – my winter world

Spital am Pyhrn, Oberösterreich, Österreich


Europe’s fastest cable car takes you up to 1.400 m of altitude in only 7 minutes, where a skiing paradise for beginners, intermediates or advanced skiers, as well as snowboarders, carvers and off-piste skiers awaits you.

The Wurzeralm is located against the breathtaking backdrop of the Warscheneck in the Pyhrn-Priel region in southern Upper Austria and can be reached quickly and easily via the Pyhrn motorway (A9).

The ski area, surrounded by a wonderful mountain panorama, offers its ski fans a wide range of excellent runs and perfectly groomed slopes on 22 kilometers of slopes. Seven ascent aids, red and blue runs, two valley runs (one of which has snow-making capabilities) and a Sunny Kids Park for the ski stars of tomorrow offer everything a skier's heart desires.

The fastest funicular in Europe takes you in no time at about 1,400m above sea level to the Wurzeralm mountain station, from where you will find a ski paradise for beginners, advanced skiers, snowboarders, carvers and deep snow skiers. The highest point, the Frauenkar, lies at 1,870 meters and offers a fantastic view of the surrounding two-thousand-meter peaks and the valley. The many adventure slopes with wave run, snake run, speed track and a permanent race track with timekeeping complete the offer. Special offers such as “Family Sundays” promise fun and action with adventure stations, competitions and many advantages for the entire family.

The family friendliness is also expressed in this ski region by other attractive family offers. For example, children up to 10 years of age only need a snowman card for 4 euros per day if they buy a parent's card at the same time (family ID required).

You can experience cosiness and conviviality in the warm huts and restaurants on the Alm. The excellent restaurants invite you to relax, sunbathe and enjoy local specialties.
