Austria's highest ski resort - Kuhtai - has a cool new attraction. An igloo village has been constructed at 2020 metres altitude. Adventurers and romantics can stay at one of the 14 igloos and enjoy moonlit snowshoe hikes or sledge rides.
Guests also can participate in a six-hour igloo building workshop or simply ski straight out of their igloos down the mountain. The igloos can accommodate two to four people and are all complete with insulated mattresses covered with soft sheepskin rugs and thermal sleeping bags.
Guests are given an extensive tour of the igloo village and a schnapps upon arrival. Packages are available for groups or romantic weekends. Also included in the price is dinner in the cosy lobby, a warm-up in the hot tub, and a copious breakfast. Getting to the igloo village is easy as guests can drive straight there.
The ski resort of Kuhtai offers modern lifts with a capacity of 16,000 persons per hour. There are three weatherproof four-seater chairlifts, a double chairlift, seven drag lifts, and a Magic Carpet for beginners. A total of 37 kilometres of ski slopes are divided into 6.6 kilometres of blue runs, 22.4 kilometres of red runs, and 8.1 kilometres of black runs.
