In summer this chair-lift is the perfect starting point for easy family-friendly walking-tours: comfortable foot paths that lead to the Pürschling-Houses and to the Kofel mountain. From Kolbensattel both the top o the mountain and, but only for the experienced hiker, the Sonnenberggrat are easily reachable.

Note for KönigsCard holders:
1 x per day ascent and / or descent is free; every day in winter 1 x 3 hr. free lift pass (pass requirement: at least 2 nights stay)

In winter the skiing area of the Kolben has snow made by snow cannons on up to 80% of its ski slopes, which characterized this area as a certain choice for winter activities, in the Ammertal. Particularly the blue slopes (the blue slope identification stands for easy slopes for beginners) offer in the valley real skiing fun for both young and old.
