The cable car consists of 2 sections: from the Valley Station to 1,287 m and from the climatic spa village Mallnitz to the mountain station located at exactly 2,636 m. In recent years, the capacity was doubled to 6,700 persons / hour. Two T-bar lifts in the upper area of the ski resort provide additional access to the broad hills for carvers. With approximately 30 km of slopes, Ankogel is an ideal family ski resort. It is especially popular for its safe snow, superior slopes and attractive ski terrain.

Numerous hills make for a varied range of slopes and the quality of the runs was awarded the quality certificate from Carinthia in the winter of 2003. No wonder, because the employees of the Ankogel mountain railways have been working there for many years and are thoroughly familiar with every rock and every hill Ankogel has to offer.

Bobo and the ski school for children

The two Köfele lifts near the Valley Station offer an ideal terrain for beginners to practice their first turns. And when Bobo from the ski school makes his surprise appearance, the joy is perfect. The whole group of children will forget to pay attention to the ski instructor while admiring the fat penguin (the ski school mascot and quality characteristic for excellent ski schools) gliding past them on his short skis.

Two boards to enjoy the snow – hooray!

Locals have long discovered what visitors enjoy. Especially the snow covered run into the valley is a secret among Mallnitz residents. The magnificent run first least across free terrain into the wooded area and directly to the parking lot of the Valley Station. Varied and advanced – precisely like the skiers themselves.

Directly at the Valley Station, guests will find the two ski schools. Every winter, their friendly staff is committed to providing first class service and to teaching guests of all ages the art of gliding across the snow on two boards.
