BKK Ski Area is divided into areas. Choose to use the St. Oswald Cable Car which is new and leads to all trails in the St. Oswald area. The slopes are well maintained. The only downside is to return to the parking lot you must ski down. This slope is south facing and if the temperature is above freezing, the slope at the lower level is soft snow. However, it is not difficult to ski down especially if you are an intermediate skier. Wonderful places to eat and sun at the top of the cable car as well as at the bottom. On the slope, stop at the restaurant owned by former world class skier Podel and his son Johannes. Great food her and terrific terrance for sunning on nice days.

Been there twice this winter. At the end of january there was not much snow and they were trying to make one all the time. Then in the beginning of Mart everything on the slopes was perfect. Most of the lifts are old and slow, Sankt Oswald is better place for skiing when the temerature is not very high or when there is a wind. In strong wind they will close the second part of Kaiserburgbahn in Kleinkirchheim. Not much people, no queue on the lifts.

There are only few new ski lifts, the most of them are open chair lift or old cable car. An Austrian classical problem is the lack of care on the slopes compared with Italy or France

Strong wind will shut down the ski lifts. I didn't know that and waited for an hour for ski lift to start operating again. The ski tracks were in excellent condition.

Ski slopes are wide, long and almost always well prepared. Only few for beginners and rather advanced / mostly red slopes. We were in mid-January, it was low season, and slopes were not crowdy.
Ski lifts seems old, but working OK.
Bad and St.Oswald zones are connected, but with two double chair lifts.
Free ski bus is available, but it is going very rare.
