News – 2017/18

Snowmaking is being extended and improved.

Summary

Picturesque Hinterthal is one of Hockönig’s five villages, a little known valley near Salzburg but with a fairly extensive ski area. The slopes spread across four mountains and are best suited to intermediates and beginners.  The village is small – little more than a few four-star hotels and chalets, shops and bars – but it now connects well with the main area via a fast chair-lift.
