Things to Do in Lofer

Lofer can be found in the Salzburger Saalachtal, a nice valley for nice skiing and nice hiking. Well-accessible from Salzburg, it is good for anyone looking for quintessential Alpine stuff. Not as expensive as the really happening places further south. Scenic and yet not too remote. A good compromise destination.
