Visitor Reviews of Hochkönig

Ben Frank from United Kingdom writes:

We have just returned from our second season in the Hochkonig region. We stayed in Saalfelden but skied the area most days. The lift system is brill with no queues at all. The restaurants and bars on the slopes offer traditional fare at reasonable prices. Everyone is laid back and friendly. This last week we were blessed with lots of fresh powder. An intermediate and beginners heaven. Be sure to save yourself for some apres in Maria Alm. Our favourite is the Bachwirt bar and restaurant opposite the bus station. Lots of ski shops offer good servicing and Maria Alm has its own Ski School. A ski bus service included in your lift pass links the lower lift station along the main road. Half an hour drive or bus gets you to Leogang/Saalbach and Zell am See.
