WE LIKE

  • Great for beginners and intermediates with wide and easy slopes
  • Over 1400m vertical descent over the 51km of pistes
  • Beautiful surroundings and a small intimate resort

WE DON'T LIKE

  • Not too much for advanced and expert skiers - although some great off piste
  • Bad weather can close off lifts putting a lot of pressure on others - meaning long queues
  • Little short on nightlife and restaurants, but shoudl be enough for a week

On the slopes

With 51km of pistes and 15 lifts the Gerlitzen ski resort is the largest of the resorts around the city of Carinthia offering the widest array of slopes to beginners and intermediates. This has earned it the reputation as a family friendly ski resort. The slopes are mostly wide, open, and carefully groomed so that all levels can enjoy the ski holiday adventure with the 7.5 kilometres long Kloesterle run a great workout for most.

The area is easy to navigate and with an altitude of almost 2000m the slopes of Gerlitzen offer a fine view for those who visit during the ski season which is December through to April. For those who like a challenge the Klosterle slope offers that 7.5km piste that has the full 1400m vertical. There are also some great jumps and off piste for snowboarders to enjoy at the same time. Families may also enjoy sending their children to the ski school which will supervise and teach children to ski and play in the snow as young as 18 months old. There is also 26kms of cross country trails for those who want to try.
