On the main street, a gondola takes you up to the flat bowl of Huttererböden at 1400m where there are a few nursery slopes and lifts to take you higher up the mountain.This is also where you can access 22km of pistes and get to the highest point in the area, Frauenkar at 1870m.
The ski area of Hinterstoder is at Hutter Höss and it is the Höss Express lift that takes you to the majority of the area’s intermediate runs as well as further lifts which takes you to the highest point in the area, Schafkogel at 2000m.From Schafkogel there are blue slopes and reds further down the mountain.
Hinterstoder is a great place for families. Children will love the Sunny’s Kidspark where they will learn to ski and for younger children, the Zwergennest area at the middle station gives parents the confidence their children will be well looked after and having fun.
The majority of Hinterstoder’s runs are easy reds like the valley descent back down to resort that is relatively easy but has some challenging sections that intermediates may struggle with. One run that experienced skiers must try is the Hannes Trinkl World Cup piste which descends into the valley and where the FIS Ski World Cup Super G and giant slalom was hosted in February 2016.The run is also named after the local downhill ski world cup champion Hannes Trinkl of St Pankraz.
Hinterstoder also has 4km of cross country trails as well as a snowpark at the Schullift slope and next to the speed-tracking slope.
