Planai-Hochwurzen-Bahnen is actually the biggest mountain lift and outdoor recreation company in Styria and the fifth-largest sector-business in Austria.
At seasonal peaks, the company employs as many as 410 people, including 230 employees who are with the company year-round.
Summer and winter, the company offers countless highlights to guests from near and far, whilst also hosting a number of top-caliber international events.
Nestled amid the mountain world of Ennstal with direct view of the unique Dachstein massif, the Planai fulfills practically every wish of avid winter sports fans.
State-of-the-art lifts, magical pistes and countless "mountain highlights" promise a wealth of opportunities for all ages and abilities.
The Planai is part of the Ski amadé ticket alliance and, together with the Hochwurzen, is the center of the "4-Mountain Ski Area".
The legendary 4.6 kilometer FIS hill from the mountain down to the valley was and continues to be a very special highlight of the Planai, while the famous finish slope is the crowning glory.
"Hopsi" was the furry little mascot of the Alpine Ski World Championships in 1982 and 2013.
This gray-and-white little hare is a big hero for children on the Planai, but also excites all ages in his very own "Hopsiland".
"Hopsiland" has many exciting play-stations in store for you:
Kinderland is actually the highest playground in Styria, including a pram-friendly walking path roughly 1.5 kilometers in length.
One really special stop in "Hopsi Kinderland" is Station B at the Schafalm. The "Schafalm Playground" with its giant wooden sheep (slides, climbing frames, swings) as well as the Ball Tower is a true highlight for our younger guests.
