The network of pistes at Gerlitzen Alpe includes a total of 32 ski slopes of all levels of difficulty on 52 kilometers of perfectly groomed pistes and 15 kilometers of natural ski routes. Centrally located, just a few minutes from the Villach - Ossiacher See motorway exit, you can reach the Kanzelbahn valley station in no time. From there the Kanzelbahn, which offers a wonderful panorama of Lake Ossiach and the surrounding mountains, leads directly to the ski area.
What would a perfect day of skiing be without a stop with culinary delights? There are sixteen ski huts and bars, which - unlike in many of the very large ski areas - do not focus on mass processing, but rather on regional culinary delights. Here you will find typical Carinthian cuisine and a lot of so called “Schmankalan” from the region.
Ski schools and rentals
The ski instructors at the Gerlitzen Villach ski and snowboard school will make your winter sports experience special. By the way: Ski equipment can also be hired for your stay.
