Live action during piste preparation!

You can also get up close in the snowcat and get an insight into preparing the pistes. During a 2-hour ride in a snowcat which has between 380 to 527 horsepower you experience how our perfectly prepared pistes come into being. Surrounded  by viewing screens in the air-conditioned high-tech cabin you glide over the snow layers. Children from the age of 4 years can ride in the snowcat. 

Ride times and duration: 

  • Times must be booked 2 weeks in advance at the Planai Infopoint.
  • Each ride lasts approximately 2 hours.
  • Departure is at 17:00 at the Planai Mittelstation.
  • Tickets can be purchased at the "Planet Planai" Infopoint.
  • You need to organise your journey to the Mittelstation (possible via car).
  • Rides take place from mid-December to the end of March.
  • Monday, Tuesday on the Hochwurzen
  • Wednesday to Friday on the Planai

As we also want our younger guests to have the chance to experience a snowcat in action, children of the age of 4 years and older are allowed to ride in the snowcat. Children (4 - 15 years) must be accompanied by an adult. 

The snowcat rides are basically possible in all weather conditions. Short-term cancellations may, however, occur in poor weather conditions. 

Although the snowcat is heated we recommend that you wear warm clothing. No ski boots.

Adults:  € 90-
Children (4 - 15 years): € 45-
Booking and payment are to be done at the Planai Infopoint in the "Planet Planai" Valley Station. (Do book early!)
