The Untersberg is also rather small with a single, approx. 7.5 km long slope. The Salzburg city mountain is anything but boring, as it is considered a hotspot for practiced, experienced ski aces. Extremely popular: the range of tours on the mountain. Outstanding ski tours, ideally with a local guide, present some challenges.

Distance: approx. 20 km

Several lifts and ski areas in one: From the short valley run over perfectly groomed deep snow slopes to the children’s lifts and direct connection to numerous other winter sports regions, skiing near Salzburg City on the Zwölferhorn is particularly fun. Several huts are waiting for the next stop!
