Large 3 bedroom apartment with garden in a traditional chalet style house, 5 min walk to the main ski lift in Hinterthal (Hochmaisbahn).
Located in the alpine village of Hinterthal, a district of Maria Alm, our apartment forms part of a traditional Austrian chalet style house. We purchased the apartment in summer 2008, and since then have been renovating and redecorating to make it our home away from home.
The apartment has over 120sq/m of living space split between 3 large bedrooms, lounge, kitchen, 2 bathrooms and a large hallway to store coats, boots and skis.
The area has been seen significant redevelopment of the ski infrastructure over the last 5 years with over 40 million euros invested to make it one the largest interconnected ski areas in Europe.

The property is excellently located both for the main ski lift (Hochmais) which is less than a five minute walk away and the cafes, bars and restaurants which this pretty little village has to offer. A smaller ski lift / slope (Sonnleiten) is even closer being virtually on the back door.
The apartment has free broadband internet with wi-fi, tv, dvd player, stereo, computer games consoles and lots of other board games.
With over 150km of tree lined ski slopes on the doorstep, and access to the even larger Ski-Amade region you won't be stuck for new runs to try and areas to explore. A short drive away are the popular towns of Zell Am See and Kaprun where you have access to the Kitzsteinhorn glacier at 3000m! and the amazing Tauern Spa.
The area has an outstanding snow record, with the lifts opening from late November through to April. Still relatively undiscovered by the British, the slopes are quiet and queues non-existent.

*** ALL NEW LIFTS & PISTES ***
A new 6 man chair was installed in Hinterthal to the top of the Hochmais in 2011, and a lovely new bar/restaurant - the 'Steinbockalm' opened at the very top. The ski area is now fully connected with a new gondola running from Hintermoos back up to the top of the Hochmais in Hinterthal. A new 6 man chair was installed between Hintermoos and Maria Alm in 2012, and a new ski run cut from the top of the Hochmais mountain in Hinterthal. The last of the old long T-bar lifts from Dienten has been replaced by an all new 6 man heated chair. This is all part of the multi-million euro investment being made in the area, which will provide all new snowmaking facilities with new lifts and runs added each year.
Hinterthal is an up-market village situated at the foot of the massive Hochkönig peak and Steinernen Meer range. Situated in-between Maria Alm, Dienten and Mülbach the ski area is huge, with the regions slopes connected by tree-lined slopes and a large lift network.
In summer, this region is all about walking in the mountains and golf on the valley floors with 3 of Austria's best courses within 20 minutes drive.
The spectacular city of Salzburg is one hour away by car, making it a very easy journey from the UK.
