Lonely Planet review

Beginners and intermediates should find enough of a challenge on Lienz’ 40km of pistes, which afford seductive views of the rugged Dolomites. Most of the action takes place around Zettersfeld, located slightly west of Lienz. A cable car and six lifts whizz skiers up to slopes reaching between 1660m and 2278m. Free buses link the Lienz train station to the cable-car valley stations.
