If you like cross-country skiing, you will find many good cross-country trails in Wagrain. You can easily make your way even to Kleinarl and Flachau. Or are you into more adventurous off-piste skiing? You can get a mountain guide to show you around the more inaccessible areas of the mountain. The terrain is varied, well prepared and well-structured into two separate parts with Wagrain bang in the middle.
Sled race and water park
It is not far between Aprés-ski bars, which offer an array of both Tirolian tunes and the latest hits. Don’t miss the opportunity to grab the mic for karaoke! If you want more than just skiing, Wagrain offers many exciting activities like toboggan runs and skating rinks. And of course, the water park Wasserwelt, where one can loosen up tired muscles with a visit to the sauna or with a massage and other spa treatments.
After a delicious dinner at one of the village's many restaurants, it is time to top of the evening with an exceptional adventure - taking a typical Austrian sleigh ride under the starry sky.

A family friendly ski area
The skiing in Wagrain is divided on two mountains, with Grafenberg on one side of the valley and Flachau on the other side. The two mountains are interconnected with the spectacular G-Link, which runs straight across the valley with stunning views while easily combining the skiing and making it an unforgettable experience. On both mountains you will find slopes well suited for children and families.
It's not at all a problem if you are traveling with others who have different skiing skills, because one can go on the blue piste and another can go on the red piste and still end up in the same place, both in the middle and at the bottom. Thus, you are together throughout the day.
In the heart of Ski Amadé
Wagrain is located in the middle of Ski Amadé, which is a cooperation between Wagrain, Flachau, Flachauwinkl, Schladming, Bad Gastein, Kleinarl and Zauchensee where the same lift pass applies to all destinations. In other words, here you have really good opportunities for day trips to the nearby areas.
Ski safari to Zauchensee
One of the nearby areas is the World Cup ski area Zauchensee. Zauchensee is an optimal destination to make a day-trip to. You get here by first taking the bus for a short while to Kleinarl, where you go on skis to Flachauwinkl before taking the lift up and you are now in Zauchensee. Use the day in Zauchensee before you go back the same way you got here.
