This snow-cross trail alongside the Ötscher lift is always great fun! Head down the valley, tackling challenging waves and jumps..
Ötscher race track
The kids’ park by the Ötscher lift in Gosau includes a permanent race track with time recording on the left-hand side! The finishing slope is somewhat faster, so perfect for wannabe ski racers ;)).
The area around the Törleckbahn lift is home to the unprepared Donnergroll piste. Here the terrain is fairly rocky! Knee pads needed!
The area around the Törleckbahn lift contains the Schwarzreiter mogul slope which runs towards Annaberg and presents a real challenge in terms of its lengths and the high moguls
The Rookie Park by the Horn baby lift in the Hornbahn valley station area is not just suitable for boarders and freestylers! This is also the ideal terrain for little skiers and slightly more advanced skiers to practise their ski skills with a bear schuss, steep bear curves, bear slalom and fun kickers and boxes.
Höhbühel mogul park
Experienced skiing fans can enjoy lots of fun at the Höhbühel mogul park with the Dachfirst practice moguls, Bockleitn steep slope, rocky mogul slope or Rock’n Roll ski route where you can put your energy to the test on the challenging trails!

Below the 6-seater Edtalm chair lift, the fast ‘Wilde Hilde’ offers a chance to put your courage to the test! With a gradient of 67%, the Hilde slots into the list of the most spectacular descents with ease and is in no way inferior to the famous sisters, the ‘Harakiri’ in Mayrhofen in the Zillertal valley and the Kitzbüheler Mausefalle!

The youngsters freestyle park in Astauwinkel offers beginners and experienced freestylers plenty of opportunities to practise with its varied jumps, rails and hills.
Close to the Rottenhofhütte, you can experience the sensation of being on a wild horse – but hopefully you won’t be thrown off the Rodeo piste!
Training trail Freier Fall
This training trail at the Rottenhofhütte is not for the faint-hearted – or as one guest put it: “The Freie Fall is the piste which no one remotely normal would try…!” So we’re waiting for the abnormal guests!
The new snowcross trail in Annaberg offers the optimal test and training conditions and even provides ambitious snow-crossers with a starting gate. The descent is marked with flags and poles and presents plenty of challenging diversity for racing skiers and experienced skiers.
