The 4 km long "Family run” to Inneralpbach is classed as medium degree difficulty and is not only the longest but also the most attractive run in the Alpbachtal skiing area. The run starts at the Pöglbahn top station via route number 8 and continues on a gorgeous wide run through woods down to the valley and Inneralpbach. The uniform gradient is ideal for both relaxing turns and for improving carving skills.
