In 2013 the new lift G-link opened in Wagrain, which now connects the two mountain sides, Grafenberg and Griesskareck, which means that the big skiarea is now perfectly connected. This has also brought the opportunity of long all day runs and furthermore the opportunity of exploring new areas all day long.
Wagrain offers skiing to all levels of skiers, and is the obvious choice for families with beginners and children. The area offers big and wide slopes, which provides children and beginners with the perfect start. Furthermore Wagrain also offers snowparks for the teenagers, and funslopes for children, which will definitely be popular among the youngest members of the family.
For the more experienced skiers there are lots of opportunities to improve carving skiing on the incredible wide slopes, which the area offers. When the skiing has come to an end, you can bring the family to Wagrain’s Water Park, Wasserwelt, where the kids can have fun at the slides and enjoy swimming inside and outside with a view to the mountains.
If you want to explore even more of the area, we will recommend you to jump on the bus to Kleinarl, from where you can ski to Flachauwinkl and visit Austria’s biggest snowpark, Absolut Park. From the bottom of Flachauwinkl you can take the bus across the road to Zauchensee, where you can enjoy superb skiing and try Zauchensee’s World Cup slope.
If you are cross country skiing, Wagrain is also an ideal destination, as the area offers 220 km cross country ski trail, both slopes for beginners and for the more experienced. You can take the 50 km long trip on the Tauern Trail, which runs through the Salzburger Sports Welt, or you can go from Wagrain to Jägersee through Kleinarl.
Wagrain is a nice little town, which offers several nice and good restaurants, where you can either get traditional Austrian food, a big steak or perhaps Italian food. Many people associate ski holidays with glühwein and afterski, and in the end of the day you can visit Kühberg Alm, at the foot of Grafenberg, or you can visit Kuhstall at the foot of Flying Mozart, which also offers good après ski.
