Backcountry skiing

Gently explore the mountains

If you are looking for peace and quiet in nature, you should definitely go on a ski tour. You will experience the mountain with all its facets in a gentle way. In St. Johann in Salzburg, too, there are various marked tour routes that are waiting to be discovered. The most important rule when ski touring - safety comes first!

Ski tour in unspoilt nature

The location in the middle of Salzburg Land makes St. Johann in Salzburg an ideal starting point for small and large ski tours in the midst of nature. Be it in the nearby valleys, such as the Grossarl or Kleinarl valleys, or at the foot of the Tennengebirge mountains or even on the Hochkönig.

On-piste ski tours in Alpendorf

Important notes

For safety reasons, touring skiing is generally not permitted on the marked slopes in the Alpendorf ski area. We give our paying ski guests a promise of quality. This includes not only a safe, comfortable ascent with the cable cars but also an appropriately groomed and safe descent on our pistes.

In the period from 8.30am to 7.00 pm, touring skis may be used on the left-hand side, as seen from below, OUTSIDE the marked edge of the piste from Alpendorf to the Kreistenalm, until further notice. The edge of the piste is marked with poles. From the Kreistenalm touring skiing along the piste is not permitted.

From 7.00 pm to 8.30 am all pistes in the Alpendorf are closed to all winter sports enthusiasts without exception. We ask for your understanding. During this time the pistes are being prepared for the next ski day and there is a risk of injury from piste grooming, ruts, winch cables, power cables, hoses or snow cannons.
We hope to have found a satisfactory and above all safe solution for all winter sports enthusiasts in St. Johann in Salzburg with this regulation. This is to be understood as an accommodation on the part of the mountain railway. We ask for your understanding that we will change the regulation if the cooperation and the above-mentioned points are not observed by the piste-touring skiers.
