Why choose Mühlbach / Hochkönig?
A warm and welcoming atmosphere, coupled with easy access to the slopes, makes Mühlbach an ideal choice for school ski groups. The delightful, traditional village offers pretty much all of the amenities your group needs, and if there’s something you can’t get hold of, the resort is only eight kilometres from the motorway and the town of Bischofshofen, where you’re sure to find what you’re looking for.
Set out from Mühlbach to ski over to the scenic village of Maria Alm, which can be found at the foot of the mighty Hochkönig mountain range. You’ll also find a collection of other traditional villages, such as Dienten, dotted around the area, overflowing with Austrian ‘Gemütlichkeit’ (friendliness). A good range of après-ski options is available to keep your group entertained after the lifts have stopped for the day.
On the piste
The Hochkönig ski area forms part of the impressive Ski Amadé region, one of the largest in Austria. A network of links now enables our groups to ski from Mühlbach in the East to Maria Alm in the West – all on uncrowded and well-groomed slopes, which have a strong track record for holding onto their snow. For those times when nature isn’t quite so forthcoming, the resort is equipped with 85 per cent snow making capability, making Hochkönig a safe bet.
Achieving consistently high marks, Mühlbach’s ski school makes the resort a particularly great choice for beginners. Yet intermediate and advanced skiers aren’t overlooked, with red runs accounting for over half of the available skiing.
Wide, interconnecting pistes allow beginners to quickly gain confidence on the sunny slopes of the Arthurhaus Plateau, before moving on to join their intermediate classmates in the main ski area on the Schneeberg, getting there in the safety and comfort of the Karbachalm Gondola.

There are plenty of non-ski alternatives for your group to fill in the time away from the slopes, including snowshoe trails and horse-drawn sleigh rides. Yet the most popular activities for school groups tend to be more along the lines of bowling, swimming and skating, with pizza and ice cream firm favourites when it comes to replacing those calories burnt off on the piste.
