New piste: Balbach – Ochsengarten
A new challenge awaits ambitious winter sports enthusiasts: the black Piste No. 14 connects the Balbach area with Ochsengarten.
Up until now, winter sports aficionados in the Balbach area could only return to the Acherkogel top station via Mohrenkopfbahn. The approximately 1 km long new section opens up a second alternative via Ochsengarten. Piste No. 14, which was newly built in the summer of 2020, starts just above the base station of Mohrenkopfbahn in the direction of Ochsengarten. This new stretch has also become the longest downhill run in the whole ski area: the distance between the top station of Wetterkreuzbahn via Pistes No. 13, 10 and the new Piste No. 14 to the base station of the efficient Ochsengartenbahn (hourly capacity of 2520 people) is 5 kilometers. Once again, Hochoetz lives up to its reputation as a particularly relaxed snow sports spot: the stream of skiers is perfectly distributed on a variety of downhill variants for every skill level - without any waiting times.
