The family ski region Gries with practice slope and children's area is ideal for families and beginners. The ski lift is located directly next to the Apart Gries. With your host you even have a state-certified ski instructor in the house. And ski equipment can be found in the local ski rental next door. Once a week the night skiing with illuminated slope takes place in the skiing area Gries. For all those who want to make a detour to the ski area of Sölden, it is about 30 minutes by car from Gries. Free ski buses run several times a day between Gries and Sölden.
The cross-country skiing center Gries counts a total of 13 km of high-altitude trails - for skating as well as classic cross-country skiing. The varied trails for individual demands are sometimes flat, sometimes fast, stretch uphill or downhill, along the Fischbach, through forests or over sunny hills. Entry is possible directly at the accommodation. The snow sports school Gries also offers cross-country skiing courses for beginners and advanced skiers. And there are even more cross-country skiing kilometers incl. night trail down in the valley in Längenfeld, 6 km from the accommodation.
Winter hiking & tobogganing
Use the time for a winter hike. Combined with a toboggan ride, this is a beautiful winter experience. From Apart Gries you can, for example, hike to the Nisslalm or Sulztal Alm and after a well-deserved stop for a break, whiz back to Gries on the toboggan. Other tobogganing possibilities are on the Brandalm with start in Längenfeld or on the Wurzbergalm near Winklen. And in Sölden, the new "Stiegele" toboggan run is over 7 km long - including a fast ascent with the Gaislachkoglbahn. Off the beaten track and almost more idyllic, a snow shoe hike through the snowy forests in and around Gries.
The ice skating rink Längenfeld is located 6 km from Apart Gries. For ice skating or curling. In the winter months daily open from the afternoon into the evening hours. Ice skate rental possible on site. A small novelty: ice skating at the Piburger See. Depending on the weather, you can make endless loops on the ice here on the 2 km long track and literally float over the lake.
Bathing as a bad weather program - the AQUA DOME in Längenfeld or also the adventure pool in the Freizeit Arena Sölden offer bathing fun and relaxation for the whole family. On the other hand, you can experience winter in a playful way at the snow playground in Niederthai. The oversized snowman with tubing track has been a popular destination for both young and old for years. And at 007 Elements - the James Bond cinematic installation at Gaislachkogl with video installations, interactive stations and original equipment - not only James Bond fans are amazed.
