Beginner & intermediate difficulty ski tours directly by Lake Wolfgang:

  • Labenberg (1642 m)The ski tour begins in the Postalm and offers a spectacular panorama of the Salzkammergut mountains from the top of the Labenberg. You start with a gradual incline alongside the ski lift, then go up to the Innerlienbachalm, proceed further through a forested section and finally ascend steeply up to the Labenberg. The descent leads back to the Postalm via the eastern slope. Departure point: Strobl. Distance: 6 km. Metres in altitude: 380 m. Total duration: approx. 2.5 hours. Level: beginner
  • Pitschenberg (1720 m)The ski tour on the Pitschenberg is particularly suitable for returning skiers and beginners. Both the ascent and the descent are mostly on flat terrain, only the ascent to the summit is steeper. The beautiful descent leads past the Pitschenbergalm back to the Postalm. Departure point: Strobl. Distance: 9.9 km. Metres in altitude: 544 m. Total duration: approx. 3 hours 40 minutes. Level: beginner
  • Egelseehörndl (1782 m) The ski tour leaves from the Postalm either via the Labenbergalm or via the Pitschenberg. You can descend through either the Fahrnkaralm or the Labenbergalm. Over the Zinkenbach river, up to the Zinkenbachalm, past a hunting lodge and varying terrain – the ski tour to the Egelseeehörndl promises an experience full of variety.  Departure point: Strobl. Distance: 12 km. Metres in altitude: 1209 m. Total duration: approx. 6-7 hours. Level: intermediate
  • Braunedl (1894 m)To get to the Braunedl on skis, there are two options: either from the Postalm via the west slope or from the Postalm via the "Sill".
