One of Austria's highest glaciers
Good après-ski activities
If you choose to visit Ankogel-Mallnitz and Mölltal glacier on your next school ski holiday to Austria, you’ll probably stay in the pretty resort of Mallnitz. Just 2km from the Ankogel lifts, it has a compact centre with shops, cafes and restaurants, as well as an indoor swimming pool, natural ice rink and curling facilities. Your Super Hit ski pass will provide access to Ankogel-Mallnitz and the Mölltal glacier – the only glacier ski resort in Carinthia and home to the longest ski season in Austria. A well-developed bus system connects the two sister ski resorts, so you’ll have plenty to explore on your school ski trip to Ankogel – Mallnitz and the Mölltal Glacier.
The majority of the skiing in this area is centred on the Ankogel mountain. Typically, beginners start on the valley floor, at the Köffelifts and progress on to the Ankogel lifts. Once they’re more confident, you can all then travel up to the Mölltal glacier and experience high-altitude skiing (up to 3,122m). The lift system here really is excellent – the Glacier Express takes just eight minutes to reach the middle station, where learners can ski some great blue runs and even try out an easy red. Intermediates should continue to climb upwards, where the wide, open pistes are varied and long. The altitude here guarantees great snow, all high above the tree line.
The resort was excellent.
