Hochkar (1808 m)

is the highest peak of the Göstling Alps, located on the Lower Austrian-Styrian border. This 20 km long ridge reaches the Dürrenstein peak (1878 m) in the west and is part of the Ybbstal Alps. While the southern side drops steeply into the Salza River valley, the northern slope slopes gently to the Ybbs River. There is also a famous cave in the Hochkar area, with a total length of over 600 m (source Wikipedia).


Why is Hochkar an exceptional ski resort?

Because there is something for everyone. Children in kinderland, beginners and advanced skiers on the perfectly groomed slopes, but also freeriders off the slopes in the forest or on the steep slopes of Großen Kar.

And waiting in line for a lift? Almost never!

It is skiable at an altitude of 1380 – 1808 m.a.s.l. As the only peak in the Lower Austrian Alps, it guarantees stable snow conditions throughout the winter. The season usually starts at the beginning of December (depending on snow conditions) and lasts until Easter Monday, but even then it is usually full of snow.

Season 2023/2024: Start 8.12.2023, end 1.4.2024
