For the best possible experience, book a qualified ski guide, no matter if you are a beginner, improving or advanced off-piste skier. Our local guiding experts know the region inside out and are happy to share tips and their insider knowledge.

The ORTOVOX avalanche educational trail in Maurach features seven stations explaining the proper conduct in alpine terrain and how to use avalanche beacon, shovel and probe.

Staying safe

Lake Achensee boasts a huge range of designated ski touring routes. For your safety and the safety of other skiers, be sure to plan your outdoor activities carefully, especially when heading into the backcountry. Get the knowledge and follow the rules to minimize your exposure to risk.

Safety is top priority in the open terrain and it is important to bring avalanche safety gear. This photo shows the essentials by ORTOVOX.

Free regional buses

Public transport is a fast and eco-friendly way of getting around in the Achensee region. In winter, the regional buses double as ski shuttles serving all ski areas where some of the most popular ski tours start. The AchenseeCard, the region’s visitor card which you receive from your accommodation provider, is your free bus ticket.
