Alpine winter in the Salzkammergut Lake District.
Winter activities at the Waldhof Alm.
You know, sometimes words just aren't enough. That's what it's like when you see the Waldhof Alm in winter for the first time. The Waldhof Alm is a cosy mountain hut with a homely restaurant and sunny terrace which is nestled on the hillside just 15 minutes walk from Ebner's Waldhof. As you pass the last bend the Alm appears before you, covered in snow, glistening in the sunlight, it's like entering a fairytale world. Once you reach the Alm and turn towards the valley you'll see the majestic Lake Fuschl below you and the mountain peaks in the distance stretching as far as the eye can see. Enjoy a warm bowl of soup by the open fire or a steaming glass of mulled wine on the sunny terrace - just the thing after a curling match, an exciting morning on the snow-tubing run or a few hours exercise on the cross-country skiing trails. Simply magical!
After a short break for refreshments at the Alm restaurant, the kids will be itching to have a go on the snow-tubing run. The soft rubber rings are big enough to hold "children" of all sizes and for those of you who have always hated the walk to the top of the hill, the magic carpet lift will take you effortlessly to the top of the slopes for another exciting run.
Fairytale practice slopes.
You want your kids to learn to ski while they're young, or you just want to spend a few hours of fun on the slopes with them without having to drive too far? The ideal place to do just that is the children's practice slope at the Waldhof Alm with fairytale characters to ski around. The magic carpet lift means that getting back to the top of the hill is easy and fun! We offer introductory ski course with Katharina who is simply great with the kids. Ask at the reception for more details. .
The name says it all! The magic carpet lift is over 50m long and will bring winter sport fans, regardless of the equipment they are using, comfortably to the top of the slopes that face the idyllic mountain restaurant the Waldhof Alm.
Snow-biking: exiting and fun!
Once upon a time there was an inventor who, just for fun, made a contraption that combining a bike and skis. "Not a bad idea" thought Thomas Ebner the hotel's junior manager and it wasn't long before he was saddled up and ready to go! In the winter you'll see Thomas racing down the slopes cheering loudly "Yee Ha!" Do you fancy a go yourself? No problem! Thomas is happy to give you a few tips, simply ask at the reception.

Curling with a difference.
Austrian curling is a game that is traditional to the Salzkammergut Lake District, but it differs quite significantly to the curling else where. That's why your wellness trainer Katharina and the members of the Ebner family are happy to give you a few tips and help you out with the rules. Curling stones can be borrowed free of charge from the hotel. As soon as the pond at the Alm freezes over the curling season is opened!
