Nassfeld - in the 10 best resorts in Austria

The largest ski resorts, Bad Kleinkirchheim and Nassfeld, occupy an honorable place in Austrian winter tourism on a par with the popular resorts of Salzburgerland and Tyrol. Getting to the most important ski resorts in Carinthia is very easy: the road to Nassfeld on the Tauern A10 Autobahn from Salzburg Airport will take no more than 2 hours - literally a stone's throw.

Unlike Bad Kleinkirchheim, the Nassfeld ski resort is not a settlement - it is just a point on a 1552 m high mountain pass (Nassfeldpass) surrounded by the peaks Gartnerkofel (2195 m), Rosskofel (2239 m) and Trogkofel (2280 m). Despite not too high altitudes, there has been a lot of snow here, on the border of Austria and Italy, in the last couple of years. For example, from January 31 to February 2, 2014, 155 cm of snow piled on the slopes of Nassfeld, and the total depth of the snow cover was more than 2 meters.

The Nassfeld ski area has a total of 110 km of pistes, as well as several freeride slopes, located on an area of ​​113 hectares. Most of the slopes are of medium difficulty - there are 63% of the total number of slopes here. For beginners, there are not many trails - 27% and 10% - difficult. The longest track is 8 km long.

In addition to the prepared slopes and areas of the Freeride Area, there are 2 snow parks and a fancross track for freeskiing in Nassfeld. In addition, snow tubing, bike bob, snow skate, snow scooter, sleds, snow trick, ski fox, bike board and other equipment for fun on snow can be rented at the lower station of the Millennium Express cable car. slopes.

The competition is called Schlag das Ass (inger) and was originally organized by Armin Assinger, a former alpine skier of the Austrian national team, 4-time winner of the World Cup competition, and currently the famous TV presenter of the Austrian version of the TV show «Who want to be a millionaire?».

The number of participants who took part in these races averages about 800 people. The point of the race is to beat Assinger's result, the main prize is the BMW X1.
