The Lungau’s 5 Top Ski Areas

Winter holidays spent with us here at Sporthaus Pichler or Haus Pfarrkirchner are all about snow-covered ski slopes and glorious sunshine.  The Lungo ski alliance brings together 59 lifts and 300 kilometers of slopes in the Obertauern, Grosseck-Speiereck, Fanningberg, Katschberg-Aineck and Schönfeld ski areas. The Lungo ski pass is also accepted on the smaller Petersbründl, Lessach and Zederhaus lifts. Numerous ski schools help beginners and experienced skiers to get the most out of their time on the slopes.

The Lungo also lets you use the ski-shuttle system at no charge, allowing you to commute easily between the different ski areas.
