Winter sports fans take note: the winter season at the Gradonna****s Mountain Resort is in full swing. Located at 1,350 metres above sea level, the resort features 42 chalets and a hotel, and is the ideal base for anyone after fun times on the snow and the slopes.
Families with children in particular will get their money’s worth at the Gradonna because the car-free resort isn’t just right in the middle of the Kals-Matrei ski resort on the Großglockner, it also offers guests a ski school and ski pass service plus a free beginners’ area in the resort. That means you can clip in right outside the hotel or chalet and make your way down the slope in a state of skiing bliss! What’s especially attractive for families is that with the Ski)Hit ski pass, children under six can whizz down pistes for free, while school-age children and teens under 18 go half price. A very appealing bonus is the fresh air up here – mountain air is proven to lower your heart rate and blood pressure, meaning your cardiovascular system is better protected.
In addition to the unique ski-in, ski-out experience, the lifestyle resort attracts guests with its obvious commitment to sustainability concepts. A smart energy supply, focus on regionality and nature-inspired architecture shape the corporate philosophy, for which the resort has won awards such as the World Travel Award in 2022, which is considered the Oscar of the tourism industry. The Gradonna****s Mountain Resort prevailed in the category World’s Leading Mountain Resort 2022 against premium hotels in Italy and the USA, and in doing so confirmed that “our sustainable concept isn’t just fit for the future, but also ensures positive reactions in the present,” says Gradonna manager Thomas Krobath with delight.
The sustainability concept continues in the spacious spa area with Kals marble, a lot of wood and fresh mountain source water. Various saunas warm and soothe tired skiers’ legs, and you can also take a dip in the pleasantly heated indoor and outdoor pools or solar-heated bathing pond complete with view of the Großglockner. The youngest guests can splash around in the separate children’s swimming pool heated to a cosy 34ºC and equipped with small slides. And if you want to look after yourself a bit more, why not indulge in a treatment by our therapists and spa staff using high-quality products from the Magdalena’s – made in Tyrol natural cosmetics range, which guarantees sustainable well-being. Winter season 2023, we’re ready for you!
