A Winter with unlimited skiing pleasure

Welcome to Skihofen!

Thanks to our central location in the middle of the most famous holiday resorts in Austria, Viehhofen is the ideal starting point for an eventful summer holiday away from the hectic hustle and bustle of the big winter sports resorts. 

Every day you are spoiled for choice: you can either take the zellamseeXpress from Viehhofen to the Schmittenhöhe, your comfortably entrace to the family ski area of Zell am See, or you drive with the free ski bus to the Schönleitenbahn, the entrace to the Skicircus Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn. The Home of Lässig is waiting for you! 

There is also a practice lift right next to the valley station of the zellamseeXpress in Viehhofen, which is ideal for children and beginners.

Another highlight is the Alpincard, which was created through the collaboration of the large ski resorts around us and replaces all local ski passes. This means that you can ski on every side of the Glemmtal with just one ski pass and experience unlimited skiing fun in the midst of the most beautiful places in the Alps. Especially motivated people can ski or snowboard from Viehhofen to the Kitzsteinhorn (glacier) in Kaprun!
