Snowcat Rides

Dreams come true!

In the evening, as the last winter sports fans slice back down to the valley on their last run of the day, the Maiskogel team are already beginning to groom the pistes for the following morning. Gracefully and seemingly effortlessly, the 527 hp snowcats plow their way up the slopes. In a very short time, the tracks of our skiing and snowboarding guests will have been erased, leaving the pistes as smooth and even as can be for the next day's sports fans.

Would you like to take a look behind the scenes of Maiskogel Family Mountain? We offer you the opportunity to ride along and lend a hand on one of our snowcats, right up front next to the driver. Drive across the snow-covered hillsides of the Maiskogel, shoving, rolling and shaping the piste until it's perfectly groomed for the next day of skiing.

A dream come true, and not just for kids!
