Winter in the Alps is incomparable.
White mountains, snowy forests, well-groomed ski slopes, cross-country ski trails and toboggan runs, stunning blue sky, wonderfully fresh, clean air and a panorama that takes your breath away.Yes, it is a fascinating and unforgettable experience even for us locals when the fog in the valley is still sparkling and the sky is already at its finest with the sun shining on our Mittelgbirgsplateau
It is awesome, we're proud of it and warmly recommend our guests to experience it.

Our two "home-ski" areas are the Mutterer Alm (a cablecar takes you directly from Götzens to this ski resort) and the Axamer Lizum. Free ski buses commute at short intervals from these resorts to the valley station of the railway Götzner.
The Mutters ski resort is ideal for families, leisure skiers and lovers of long, wide runs. The Axamer Lizum is more varied and hides many wonderful surprises.From the Axamer Lizum our guests can reach the Mutterer Alm and enjoy the 8km descent directly into Götzens.
Twice a week there is also a free ski bus which takes you directly to the Schlick 2000 and the Stubai Glacier. In addition, both the North Park and the Kühtai can be easily reached by public transport.
In order to provide our guests with the utmost comfort, we also have an in-house ski rental. We are happy to meet your individual requirements and equip you with top apparel at the best price! We will gladly assist you with the booking of ski or snowboard lessons and recommend the perfect school for your needs.
If you prefer to discover an experienced local ski environment, then you will find our VIP Alp Art guides available. Günter and Florian, the two men in our house, will show you the best slopes and the traditional huts, and provide you with the best insider information.
Ideal conditions for your cross-country skiing holiday
Directly on our central mountain plateau you can find groomed trails, in good snow conditions, which run for a total of about 28 km. One zone is located in the area Axams - Birgitz (about 7.5 km) and the other zone is the ski area Mutters Natters (approx. 21,5 km). If snow condition is not enough, then you can freely use, several times per week, a cross-country bus to a nearby field dedicated to this wonderful sport.
The new trend in winter
Miles of well groomed winter hiking trails for all levels can be found starting right outside the front door of our hotel, whether for leisurely strolls or short hikes to mountain pastures. It's something for all ages.
We also have a wide range of leisure activities for non-skiers
In the near vicinity of our house there are plenty of nice sledding trails for all levels. Natural slopes to climb on foot, reached by lift or illuminated at night. Depending on snow conditions, we can recommend the perfect route. Every day there is a free bus taking guests to a wonderful night-lit natural toboggan run in Axams. Our guests can borrow sledding from the hotel.
Sports such as bobsleigh, alpine tour skiing, shooting, snow shoeing, ice skating... here anything is possible!
You can try a bob run by Stefan Raab on the Olympic track in Igls, enjoy guided ski touring or snowshoeing, ice climbing, curling or ice skating: we like to advise you in these cases and help you with the reservation.
