Präbichl has excellent alpine winter climate for skiing . As a result, a few years ago, when many ski centers had a problem with the snow, all the time there was enough snow for ideal skiing. Club pansion "Alpenklub" was built near the ski slopes. From the ski slopes it is separated only by the public parking "P2". The total length of ski trails is 20 km, with 3 seated lifts, and 3 tow with "anchor" + baby rubber band. Ski lifts are modern, trails professionally maintained every night, snow cannons are installed.
Directly behind the pansion, next to the parking lot through the mountain goes a bicycle path . This is 14 km long, with a vertical drop of 389 m, among medium heavyweight trails. Nearby there are plenty of similar trails for both beginners and for those in excellent condition. In the area of the nearby mines mountenbike race is held: Erzberg Trophy .
Only a few hundred meters away, there are two peaks suitable for Nordic Walking . The easiest route during the summer is an easy stroll through the surrounding ski slopes and a tour of a small lake in winter, which is used to make artificial snow. It's a beautiful activity because of the ease and because of the many natural beauties that can be seen only when one has time for himself, for family and for nature. Another possibility is the route to the top of the mountain Polster. From the pansion to the top, for those more experienced hikers it takes about 2 hours but this route is also feasible for beginners.
Via Ferrata, kind of new style of climbing to the general public, which is extremely safe. Participants climb paths that are secured by cables and ropes by an expert team of experienced climbers. A great opportunity for everyone who wants to experience the magic of climbing in safe conditions. They make the paths of various categories, A, B, C, D, E, and everyone selects depending on fitness and courage.
For lovers of parachuting Präbichlis a true paradise. There is also still the steepest funicular in Austria, which reaches up to the top. It works in the summer and the mountain top Polster at a height of 1911 m is bleak, treeless, so there is more safe places to go paragliding.
The largest former iron mine in Europe is at 6km from the pansion. There was applied surface excavation, and it creates artificial serpentine pyramidal shape. The mine is no longer profitable and serves as a tourist attraction. In recent years, this attraction has held most serious motocross racing event in Europe, which is regularly transmitted by "Eurosport". Consider just the fact that from 1000 participants the ones that finish the race are about 20 competitors! In addition to participants from Dakar race, the event is attended by all important, world-renowned factory motocross team. The race is called Erzbergrodeo.
