Sun skiing at Nassfeld ski resort
Where can you enjoy spring at its most beautiful? That’s easy: in the World of Mountains & Lakes, of course! After all, the Sun Ski World still offers excellent skiing conditions when at other resorts the ski season is already over. What’s more, during spring the slopes of the Sun Skin World are bathed in glorious sunshine. The perfect setting to enjoy cool events, scrumptious regional delicacies and a charming atmosphere!
Get your extra dose of spring on the biggest sun terrace of the Alps – and don’t forget those shades!
Carinthia’s sunniest ski resort
On average, Nassfeld ski resort gets about 850 – in words: eight hundred and fifty! – hours of sunshine every winter. If you think that sounds quite a lot, you’re absolutely right – especially when compared to other ski resorts. In a neck-and-neck race for the most sunshine hours, Nassfeld ski resort is the clear winner – with about 100 hours more than other competitors north of the Alps.
Nassfeld ski resort’s extra dose of sunshine is due to the region’s climatically favoured location. In spite of there being more than enough snow, many bad weather fronts simply pass by the Sun Ski World that is protected by the High Tauern mountains. Did you know that Nassfeld ski resort has the most sunny days during the winter months? The perfect winter sports experience is topped off by a glistening blanket of snow that is here to stay at least until Easter – despite all the sun. So the formula for happiness in Carinthia’s sunniest ski resort is quite simple, really: sun + snow = spring joys2.
O sole mio! Did you know that Austria’s neighbouring country of Italy is only one ski run away? The proximity to the land of the eternal holiday sun brings an extra dose of “dolce via” to the World of Mountains & Lakes.
Spring skiing in Carinthia
While the first spring flowers are blossoming down in the valley, sun skiing brings another kind of colour explosion to the mountains. Up on the slopes, it’s the red umbrellas of the ski bars that are starting to “bloom”. Over there, yellow deckchairs are “glowing” on the sun terrace and the red and white stripes of the beach chairs are splashes of colour in the white snow.
From early March, Nassfeld ski resort turns into a hotspot of sunny spring joys – best served with a side of cool events. Whether it’s “Sound of Wine“, the “Nassfeld Alpine Mountain Party“ or the Nassfeld Easter Egg Hunt for the little ones – spring in the Sun Ski World is full of highlights!
Soak up the sun while lounging in a deckchair with a glass of Aperol in your hand. Savour the delights of the famous Alpine-Adriatic cuisine while leaning against the sun-kissed exterior wall of a mountain hut. Or hit the dance floor during one of the cool events in the snow. Sun skiing at Nassfeld ski resort is all of this and more – there’s no better way to end the ski season!
A well-known German saying translates to “Do like a sundial and only count the sunny hours” – and it’s easy to do that at Nassfeld ski resort. After all, the ski resort is ideal to spend some sunny hours – and it has the perfect devices to “measure” them.
Located at Gartnerkofel mountain station and at Madritsche mountain station, you can find two special “sun spots”. The two huge sundials there display the total number of sunshine hours at Nassfeld ski resort.
If the unbelievable number displayed there makes you go weak in the knees, that’s no problem at all. Simply sit down in one of the comfy deckchairs or loungers next to the sundials and recharge your (solar) batteries.
