For Morning Birds – Guga Hö

"Guga hö" comes from the Mostviertel dialect and means not only "fresh as a fish", but it is also the name for the adventure offer of ski resorts in the Mostviertel region. Skiers who like early morning skiing will have an unforgettable experience on selected dates. At sunrise you will enjoy the first downhill on the pristine slope. With a ski guide, you will get to know the most beautiful places on the hill and then strengthen yourself in the mountain hut with hearty snacks from regional specialties.

If you think skiing early in the morning is only for adults, you are wrong. The Annaberg family ski area for families offers two special dates where even small participants can explore and thoroughly test the rich possibilities of the ski resort. Children between the ages of 8 and 15 who already manage the red slopes can take part in the morning skiing in Annaberg accompanied by an adult on 8 February and 21 March 2020.

With its 15.5 km slopes and 4 ski lifts, the resort has a lot to offer not only for families but also for freeriders, snowboarders and non-skiers. There are cross-country ski runs with a length of 11.5 km, ice skating and curling on the village square and snowy winter hiking around Lake Erlaufstausee. You can even change your active movement for a moment for a comfortable and romantic ride in a horse-drawn carriage across the winter landscape.

Those who cannot get enough of skiing, snowboarding and sledding are right at the Zauberberg Semmering. Cross-country skiing continues even after 6 pm, when artificial light comes on every day, illuminating not only the ski slopes but also the surrounding winter landscape.

To the south of Vienna you will find ski centers that provide conditions suitable for small skiers and adults who prefer larger and more demanding slopes. For example, Mönichkirchen-Mariensee, Family Ski Arena St. Corona or Puchberg am Schneeberg.
