Mölltaler Gletscher – the only glacier in Carinthia is reopening on 22nd May 2021. Recreational skiers and sport clubs can enjoy more than 3 metres of snow on the pistes. “The Schareck 1, 2, 3 pistes will be available for skiers and so will be the almost 3-kilometre-long red Eissee piste no. 9, which runs to the lower cable car station and is usually not at disposal at this time of the year. Our resort will be opened also for tourists, of course, and is ready to serve as a popular starting point or outlook spot. After the restrictions have been loosened, hotels and guest houses could reopen and simpler rules of border crossing for vaccinated people have been announced, we expect that our glacier will welcome recreation seekers as well as training athletes,” said Max Gottfried, the resort general manager.
Tourists and skiers coming to the Mölltaler Gletscher resort can travel with the Mölltaler Gletscher Express funicular, the Gondelbahn Eissee cable car, the Gletscher Jet 6-seater chairlift or the 3000er chairlift depending on the conditions.
2021/22 PREMIUM Smart Season Passes, which are valid in all TMR resorts in Austria, Slovakia, Poland and the Czech Republic can be already used for May skiing. The Smart Season Passes are available online via GOPASS.TRAVEL.
Season TopSkiPasses 2020/21 Kärnten/OstTirol are going to be valid in the Mölltaler Gletscher resort until 30th June 2021.
Another resort located at the foot of the High Tauern – Ankogel is going to be opened at weekends from 3rd June. In addition to iconic cableways that operate to the altitude of 2636 m, there is a wide range of tourist trails and attractive cycle routes which run along waterfalls, romantic shepherd’s huts and mountain chalets.
