Maria Alm is one of only a few ski resorts that has its own local mountain; the Natrun. It is approximately 1,200m high and the pistes run back down into the centre of the village. Two T-bar lifts and the Dorfj@t Natrun will take you comfortably up the mountainside where all the fun can begin. Freestylers will get their kicks on the Schönanger Funslope or at the Natrun Beginnerspark.
The “Königstour” has a very apt name because the route that can be mastered here in just one day is truly majestic. Your can join the route from Maria Alm, Dienten or Mühlbach. It does not matter where you start, you are guaranteed to enjoy the finest possible skiing on this 32km tour.
You can expect to enjoy steep slopes and red and blue runs at the skiing area at Natrun. If there is adequate snow cover, you can travel from Natrun to the valley station on the Aberg gondola lift. However, this red run is reserved for more experienced skiers. Beginners should take the ski bus.
