The most beautiful slopes

We very often hear that we have the most beautiful pistes in Hauser Kaibling right outside the hotel door at Höfi Express 1 and 2. However, this praise is due to the lift operator Helmut Höflehner and especially his staff! Day in, day out, they prepare a wonderful, approx. 40 km long carpet of snow with their 490 HP Pistenbully.

In general, the piste is closed between 17:00 and 08:00. This must be adhered to at all costs, as in some places the piste machines are secured with winches. Freshly fallen snow overnight means that you have to go out and prepare the piste again in the morning.

By the way: the Höfi Express 1 is an insider tip among day skiers as an entry point to the Hauser Kaibling piste world and the 4-mountain ski circuit. Here you can usually start your skiing fun without queuing up.

Määäh, määääh - "Ennstal Lamm" on Hauser Kaibling

Accompanied by a shepherd couple with their dogs, over 700 sheep tend the slopes and alpine pastures around Hauser Kaibling.

In recent decades, the cultivation of the alpine pastures has declined rapidly, causing valuable alpine pastures to go wild and be lost. In order to counteract this development, the Styrian Sheep Breeders' Association has initiated the LEADER project "Ennstal Lamb" together with committed partners such as the municipality of Haus im Ennstal, the Hauser Kaibling cable cars, the Raumberg-Gumpenstein Agricultural Research Centre as well as the Stainach Agricultural District Authority and the Ennstal Leader Region.
