The air is cold and even the bright winter sun gives off only hesitant warmth. We are sitting on the chairlift at Mölltal Glacier, which safely ferries us up into the high mountains meter by meter. Next stop: all the way up at 3,122 m above sea level. Only our favourite colours are on view: Blue and white AND a wonderful panorama into the Alpine world of the Hohe Tauern. Having arrived at the top, we look around and enjoy the view and get ready for a challenging and sheer endless downhill run across wide glacier slopes.
High above the national park community of Mallnitz you’ll find another gem of ski sports, in addition to the Mölltal Glacier. The long-standing ski area of Ankogel has developed into a true insider’s tip for freeriders in recent years. The snow situation is usually good, the freeriding terrain diverse and the longest ski slope in Carinthia with up to 1,600 m difference in altitude a real challenge for the thighs. Five lifts will carry you up, where an ideal beginners’ area with economical rates awaits.
