According to the ADAC and Skiresort International, it is one of the top ten ski resorts in the world – according to skigebietetest.de, „top for families“ and „top for good skiers“: Großglockner Resort Kals-Matrei has won many awards and, with 110 kilometres of piste, is also East Tyrol’s largest ski resort.
The Austrian Consumers’ Association awarded it with the top prize for best value for money for families. Gault Millau honoured the Adler Lounge at the Cimaross Peak with a coveted toque in 2011. Walter Hartweger manages the Adlerlounge as leaseholder, mountain hut landlord and chef – with the unswerving support of his Katharina.
The events and overnight stays are legendary, in suites designed in contemporary alpine flair and face to face with the mighty Großglockner and another 60 three thousand peaks belonging to the Hohen Tauern. At 11.3 kilometres, the Osttirol downhill run from Cimaross to Matrei is the longest in East Tyrol. Piste freaks can enjoy a taste of what is to come on the Blauspitz Downhill and the Goldriedsee-Variant. 90 per cent of the pistes including all three downhill valley runs have artificial snow makers that can be used on demand.
Dedicated to sustainability and quality, the new Gradonna****S Mountain Resort Châlets & Hotel, will be opening its’ portals for the first time on the 8th December 2012 and is located next to the downhill run to Kals at 1,350 metres altitude. This four star superior hotel with 3.000 m2 spa facilities and the 42 châlets, each with their own private spa area, have all been carefully constructed using wood. The new resort will be car-free, with reserved, underground parking for every room and chalet.
