Winter & ski holiday in Forstau

Skiing & snowboarding, cross country skiing, tobogganing… in Ski amadé

A winter and ski holiday full of pleasurable moments awaits you in the small, idyllic resort of Forstau. Here, between Radstadt and Schladming, you can enjoy the peace and quiet, and yet find an ideal base for a variety of leisure activities. Families and gentle skiers value the Fageralm ski area for its wide pistes and short queues at the lifts. If you fancy a change, a number of ski areas in the Ski amadé area are within a few minutes drive – Reiteralm, Planai, Radstadt/Altenmarkt, Flachau… are all included in your multi-day ski pass. Access to the Fageralm ski area is just 300 m away from the Hotel and Gasthof Forstauerwirt and you can ski right back to the front door.
