Newbies will start out on the extensive nursery slopes of Tressdorfer Alm, at the top of the Millennium Express gondola, or the Sonnenalpe beginner slopes.
This is a fantastic area for intermediates, with a variety of different blue and red runs to improve your technique on. From the top of the main gondola, relaxed intermediates will love the blue and red runs that take you down to Sonnenalpe Nassfeld, but for those looking for more of a challenge, the pistes in Gartnerkofel and Watschiger Alm offer a good variety of routes.
There aren't many pisted runs in Nassfeld that'll offer a real challenge for seasoned skiers - there's only one marked black run, the Trogkofelbfahrt, while the majority of runs are categorised as red. However, you will find a number of off-piste ski routes accessible from higher slopes. It’s worth getting a guide to stay safe and find the freshest snow if you want to try touring.
In and around the resort there are a range of cross-country skiing trails at varying altitudes (between 600m and 1500m) and difficulty levels. Nassfeld-Pressegger See (Tröpolach, Rattendorf, Nassfeld) is one of Austria's largest cross-country centres, with several trails reaching over into Italy, through snowy forests and past stunning vistas. There's a Nordic Competence Centre with biathlon for guests, equipment available to hire and a ski school to help you practice.
Nassfeld and the surrounding mountains are a haven for off-piste powder lovers who want to hone in their skills. Many of the runs can be accessed via the lifts, but if you want to get higher, you can hike up the mountains before skiing back down. Long slopes, tree skiing and cliff drops are all on offer here. The Lesachtal Valley is one of the best areas to go, as most of the snow is untouched and uncrowded - there are seven popular routes which require a hefty ascent, but you'll be rewarded by deserted descents that have vertical drops of up to 4,000ft.
You’ll find two parks with quarter pipes, kickers, table tops and a snow-cross course.
