Advantages of Hochficht ski area:

  • More than 20 km of slopes (9 km blue, 10 km red, 1 km black)
  • Comfortable transport – new gondola lift, 3 x four-seater chairlift, 7 ski lifts, Kids Park with “Magic carpet“
  • Ski resort with the highest location in the Czech mountains (858 – 1,337 m a.s.l.)

The advantage of Hochficht is the length and variety of downhill runs at the total length of 20.8 km which connect the three peaks called Hochficht (Smrčina) 1,338 m, Reischelberg (Hraničník) 1,281 m and Zwieselberg 1,163 m into an amusing “skiing seesaw“ which cannot be found in any other Czech ski resort. This is an ideal place for everyone as it offers not only Stierwiese, a gentle 3.4km-long family downhill run, but also a standard FIS race ski slope on which the European Cup took place, or 1,500m-long black Zwieselbergabfahrt downhill run.

The slogan “more time of skiing, less time of waiting” holds true for Hochficht at a hundred per cent. You will be comfortably transported to the downhill runs by three modern four-seater chairlifts and eight ski lifts. A “magic” moving carpet (185 m) is a speciality for children and beginners and is the longest one in the whole of Upper Austria.

The ski area Hochficht is 30km from the guesthouse, along the route: Nova Pec – Predni Zvonkova – Schöneben – Lichtenberg – Ulrichsberg – Zentrum Hochficht. Average transport time is 40 min.
