The two ski mountains, Ahorn and Penken, undoubtedly make the hearts of every ski-sport-lover skip a beat. You can glide up to the top of Mount Ahorn in only a few minutes with the Ahornbahn, Austria's largest gondola lift, before exploring the sumptuous slopes with stunning panoramas and enjoying a relaxing visit to the White Lounge and Igloo Village at 2,000 metres above sea level. The versatility of the region becomes immediately apparent on switching from Leisure Mount Ahorn to Action Mount Penken, where exceptional challenges await: Harakiri is Austria's steepest slope with an incredible 78 per cent incline gradient and true cult status.
