A secret tip for experienced winter sports lovers is the ski area of Hochstein. It offers challenging, yet relatively quiet slopes and all 11.6 km of slopes are below the tree line in the woods. Several world cup championships have been held here. You'll also find a lit toboggan run that you can descend from Hochstein all the way to the town of Lienz. In a nutshell, rent a holiday home, chalet or apartment in or near Lienz for your winter sports holiday and discover these fabulous ski areas!
