The Steinberg ski tour is considered a moderate beginner's tour and runs over about 1,000 metres of altitude 2.5 hours up the mountain, and with challenging sections along the Steinberg piste in Leogang. The tour starts at the Steinbergbahn lift valley station and ends at the Asitzbahn lift mountain station. The descent then leads via prepared pistes 212 and 211 into the valley. The tour is open every day within the operating hours and every Tuesday and Friday from 6:00 to 10:00 pm for ski tourers.
Ski touring is only possible in the area of the Steinbergpiste (along 211+212 outside the edge of the piste).

The approximately 3 km long ski tour lasts about 1 hour 40 min and leads over about 650 metres of altitude, starting at the parking lot of the summer toboggan run Biberg.

Once at the top, all the efforts are forgotten because you are rewarded with the magnificent panorama of the Steinerne Meer mountain range and the Saalfelden basin.

Those who prefer to go their own way during winter holidays put on their snowshoes and enjoy the silence in the forests covered in deep snow.

Directly from the Riederalm you will find countless opportunities for romantic winter walks and hikes.
The Sonnbergrunde circuit, as its name suggests, is a hike through the 'sunny side' of Leogang in winter. From the Hotel Riederalm you start to the village centre and continue through the districts Otting, Sinning and the Sonnberg to the Badhaus and back again. The hike is moderate and has some ascents which are quite demanding, but manageable. The advantage of this hike is that you can also get some sunshine in winter!
