The aprés ski in Wildschönau offers something for every holiday maker. Attractively situated, charming lodges and snack bars located in the ski area or valley invite guests to experience aprés ski fun. A good place to stop by right after skiing is the "Gruttn-Bar" at the Schatzberg gondola valley station or at the "Bobo's-Heustadl Bar" right next to the Markbachjoch gondola valley station. For those who would prefer a more tranquil and romantic setting, there is the slow train "Geheimnisvolle Schlucht" with a torchlit hike and mulled wine just after the evenings onset. Fun for the whole family can be found with a toboggan party at the Wildschönau toboggan run or a snow-shoe hike through the mesmerizing winter landscape of the upper valley. Awaiting you in the evening are countless restaurants and taverns with typical Tirolean specialities. Night owls can spend their later hours in the bars, pubs and discos, which sometimes have live music. With the Nightliner you will be brought safe and sound back to your accommodation after a night of celebration.

The 50 km of excellently prepared cross country runs will get the hearts of skiers beating a little faster. In a such a lovely setting, it's a dream to explore this sunny valley from Neiderau and Oberau, to Mühltal and Auffach.

The distance from the cross-country tracks to one of the many taverns is never very far, which is a big plus. The degree of difficulty ranges from middle to easy and the longest track is approx. 20 km, from the Penning track to the Roggenboden. Especially lovely is the 5 km long intermediate Schönanger run at an altitude of 1,190 m.
