The resort is twinned with the Molltaler Glacier. There is a bus between the two. Mallnitz is an Alpine Pearl Village, so environmental issues are high on the agenda. The lift infrastructure is limited, with a two stage gondola taking you above the tree line to a large bowl, where there are a couple of T bars. It is proposed that a chair lift will be added to the bowl. Most of the runs are red, but really you can ski anywhere in the bowl. Great views from the top. Really nice run from the top to the bottom. There is a beginners area at the bottom of the gondola station (drag lifts). Resort is quiet and hotel based. So really it is good for families ready to step up from learner slopes to the real thing. The town has a nice pool and an ice rink. It is also one train stop to Bad Gastein, which has extensive pistes. The resort really comes into its own if you are very good and very fit. There are excellent ski touring routes out of the town. You can take the gondola to the 2600m and then skin up to about 3000m and then descend into the Gastein Valley. You can take the train back from the bottom to Mallnitz, or take the bus to Sport Gastein. Other day tours take you from Mallnitz 1200m up to 2700m.
