Sports & leisure time in winter

You can glide down well-groomed pistes. There’s a small practice lift for beginners in the village.

More sporting skiers can visit the ski area of Großglockner Resort just above Matrei (7 km from Virgen) with 110 km pistes - East Tyrol’s longest downhill run.

You also can explore the wintry landscape by going for a walk. There are guided tours with snow shoes or you can go on a backcountry hike with a mountain guide.

There are about 25km of ski trails for cross-country skiers and a natural toboggan run, floodlit at night.
