Intermediates

The Hochkoing is a paradise for intermediates. Warm up on the Natrun pistes before heading down the red to Aberg. The Aberg mountain offers a number of blue and red runs down to either the base station or Hintermoose. From Hintermoose join in the Kings Tour a 34 km trek over to Mulbach and back. The Bubble up from Hintermoose to Gabuhel opens up one of our favorite red runs down to the beautiful village of Dienten.From Dienten a series of chairs and a couple of T bars take you over towards Mulbach and the glorious wide fast blue to Mulbach its self. Retrace your steps back to Maria Alm and fall in to the Dengl Alm for a well earned tipple!

Advanced

Don’t be put off but he size of the ski area. The Hoch Konig has quite a few surprises. The reds on Natrun provide a good warm up before heading over the Aberg. From the Arberg summit there a two wonderful off piste runs. One to the right flows in to pastures and pops out at the Aberg mid station. Heading east from the summit takes you properly into the back country – wide open snow fields drop in to a valley that eventually ends up at Hintermoose. The Dienten area provides some steep fast reds  but the real surprise is on Schneeberg which has one of the steepest black runs in Europe down through the trees.
