Konigsleiten

Resort 1600m  |  Top Lift 2502m  |  Lifts 49

Konigsleiten is something of a rarity in Austria – a purpose-built ski-in, ski-out ski holiday resort high up on the mountain at 1600m. Fortunately for everyone the architects weren’t French and the resort is all low-rise and charming with ski pistes winding through the resort and beyond to the lower beginners ski area and the piste that links into the Hochkrimml section of the Zillertal Arena. Konigsleiten is probably the most convenient ski holiday resort in the Zillertal Arena and offers more resort facilities than the other ski-in, ski-out resort of Hochkrimml. Above the resort the Konigsleiten offers some great intermediate terrain whilst on the side leading into the Gerlos ski area there are some huge off-piste areas on offer – these should be tackled with a guide. There is also some off-piste (but really on-piste) terrain located beneath the Falschbachbahn that offers easy access to those who are new to the world of off-piste skiing and snowboarding. Intermediates should make the journey over to Zell am Ziller through the Gerlos ski area for a great ski safari.
