The beautiful village of Matrei is amid the highest mountains in East Tirol. On the southern side of Matrei you will find the Goldried cable car that will take you to the pistes of the ski resort of Matrei-Kals. This is an ideal resort for skiers and snowboarders looking to avoid the crowds and the queues. There are also plenty of options for cross country skiers. The 25 kilometer long tracks start at Mitteldorf, roughly 5 kilometers from Matrei. Although Matrei is one of the lesser known ski resorts in Austria, there is plenty to keep you entertained like luging, parasailing, bowling, indoor tennis and ice skating. Of course, there is also a sauna and solarium if you want to relax for the afternoon or you can book a sleigh tour through the resort. In the centre of Matrei you will find some lively bars, good restaurants and plenty of nice shops.
There is a lift that links Matrei and Kals which are both part of the same ski area. Now that these areas are linked, there is a total of 110 km (68 ml) of pistes to explore during your holiday. The ski resort has a great snow record, and also has many snow canons that can cover the lower pistes when deemed necessary. Thanks to these snow canons the 11 km (7 ml) long trail down to the valley is always open!
The ski area of Matrei and Kals is perfect for those who appreciate a lively atmosphere. There are two restaurants on the mountain which are perfect places to unwind during your holiday. Panoramic views, bright sunshine and Glühwein!
