Our ski touring tips

From St. Oswald you either head towards the Mallnock via lonely forest trails or via the piste after the ski season has ended. On the outskirts of the St. Oswald skiing area you can ascent to the summit that offers great views of Kärnten’s Nockberge Mountains. When snow conditions are good, you can even head eastwards to the soldier’s cross from the Mallnock.
