The ski zone lies mainly in the western part of the valley, on the slopes of the mountains Zaurkopf (2014 m) and Grisenkarekk (1991 m), and has a height difference from 827 to 2000 meters. With the total length of the tracks, about 111 km a quarter occupy descents for beginners, about 65% – "Red" 10 more – "Black". At the same time, together with the neighboring valleys of the SKI Amade region, the total length of the slopes comes to 860 km! The longest route – GRIESSENKAR-ABFAHRT (6 km, height difference – 1000 m), but the most famous is a three-kilometer Cup slope Weltcup-Strecke with a drop of 700 meters, certified FIS. There are illuminated slopes for night skiing, a special track for carving from the eastern slope of Zaubarkopfa (the lift from the village of Flahawintel 1 km above the Valley of the Ense) and the Fan Park with Half Pipe. In this case, all the slopes are quite wide (even "Red") and carefully well-groomed, pass on picturesque places and in the season almost do not have a lack of snow (help more than hundreds of snow guns, overlapping about 70% of the slopes). In the lower part of the eastern slope, a large territory for training riding, leaving Tindl, Flahawinkel and Valhau.
There are 41 lifts throughput by almost 27 thousand people per hour, which, together with neighboring resorts, gives an extensive zone of riding with very diverse conditions.
