Start the Winter Season in Heiligenblut am Grossglockner

As glorious autumn days give way to cooler temperatures, the ski season in the Grossglockner/Heiligenblut ski area draws palpably closer. It won’t be long before nature’s vibrant colours and golden hues are replaced by natural snow, freshly groomed pistes and exhilarating days on more than 55 km of slopes. Are you ready for the Winter Season 2018/19?

App and Away

This year’s edition of the Grossglockner Berglauf uphill race, which took place on 15 July 2018, was a great success: once again, top athletes from around the world proved their prowess in the Hohe Tauern Mountains – running from the village of Heiligenblut to the Kaiser-Franz-Josefs-Höhe. Even if you didn’t make it to this year’s event, you can still bring the spirit of this unique competition to life this summer: with our special stop-watch app, you can measure your performance on the official Berglauf route – and pit yourself against the competition’s past participants.

What’s your best time? New stop-watch app for your own ‘Grossglockner Berglauf’ uphill race

The route used annually for the international ‘Grossglockner Berglauf’ running competition has been made the subject of a virtual stop-watch (courtesy of the German start-up ‘meinberglauf’) – allowing runners and hikers to enter into their own private race on Austria’s longest and best-known uphill running track.

New Snow Machine in the Fleiss Valley

Guaranteed snow cover in the high-alpine terrain: Heiligenblut is fully equipped to counteract the effects of climate change.

When 75% of a ski area is situated at altitudes higher than 2000 metres, excellent snow reliability is practically a given. Visitors to the Grossglockner/Heiligenblut ski area can indeed look forward to pistes that are predominantly covered in natural snow, along with fantastic off-piste runs. However, the last two winters have shown that even in this high-alpine terrain – especially at the beginning of the season – full snow cover on all pistes cannot always be guaranteed.
