The Fun Mountain Turracher Höhe grows and grows
25.01.2017

Come up, take a deep breath, pull the plug and immerse into an entirely different world. The Fun Mountain at Turracher Höhe includes a Funslope, a Snowpark, a Funcross and the Kidsslope Nocky’s WinterZeit and it keeps growing. There is broad entertainment with loads of fun and variety within the beauty of nature – from the youngest ones to the pros.

What would Turracher Höhe be without the Nocky Flitzer rollercoaster and the Slope Butler? The spectacular alpine rollercoaster gained some exciting neighbors and the ever-friendly butler, equipped with sunscreen, drinks and snacks is very likely to be seen around the ski resort.

 

Throughout the Funslope Turracher Höhe, banked turns, waves and small jumps are nestled into the terrain. The 8-meter-long bridge and the various snow tunnels, as well as audio elements, are definitely the new highlights on the over nearly one kilometer winding slope this season. Another eye catcher is the Speedboost – everyone who ever played Mario Kart knows what this is about – and then there’s the High-Five making a funny sound every time you slap this giant hand.

Most Funslope enthusiasts at Turracher Höhe just can’t get enough of the exclusive Double Fun Twister: a remarkable construct that keeps visitors amazed and makes the Funslope Turracher Höhe so unique. Have a glimpse at our photo gallery to see what we are talking about. Or – even better – stop by and convince yourself while filling up on some vitamin D. As the Turracher Höhe is located on the southern face of the Alps it gets many sunny hours every day. And the view across the Nockberge mountains over to the Karawanken mountain range makes your batteries fill themselves up automatically.

The tiniest Duracell-bunnies, the ones that seem to never drain, can hurtle down the Kidsslope Nocky’s WinterZeit at Turracher Höhe all day long. The Wildkopf lift sets a smooth connection run after run until the parents are back from cross-country skiing, skiing or their motor sled tour. In the evenings, the family fun continues in the ice skating rink at Lake Turracher.

Besides all these exciting activities, the Funcross Turracher Höhe will cast a spell over various adrenaline junkies. Freestylers will discover endless amounts of obstacles and lines in the Snowpark located right next to the Funslope.

A unique snow adventure for everyone like the Funslope goes hand in hand with hard and professional work. No banked wave, tunnel or life-like Slopy figure got on the mountain itself. To build a track that´s worth being called “Funslope”, we need absolute shaping professionals. And these pros are to be found at the Shape Academy.

Once again, many votes were gathered at the grand finale of the Funslope Photo Quest.

If you think Funslopes are only built with snow groomers and lots of machine power, you’re wrong: At the end of the day, our Funslopes are all manual work.
