Confident in safety!

Wildkogel-Arena protects its guests and employees

Information about Wildkogel lift operations during winter season

Skiing is an extremely healthy outdoor sport. When you are out in the fresh mountain air, you replenish your vitamin D levels and get lots of exercise in the process. And the benefits aren’t merely physical: Especially after all those restrictions of recent months, a stay in the mountains also does wonders for your state of mind. Good reasons, then, to see you here this winter!
