After his ski career during the 70ies
Poldl Gruber started his gastronomy career.
Together with Uschi he built up the "Sportalm".
At the beginning the "Sportalm" was a
restaurant, later it became a pension and apartment
house too. Continuous improvement
brought more and more guests.
Uschi's and Poldl's son Johannes will
step into his parent's shoes. Johannes attended
the tourism college in Villach and got
a lot of practical training at hotels in
Bad Kleinkirchheim, Velden, Leogang and
South Africa. At the "Sportalm" Johannes
is responsible for the service team. Sometimes he
helps his father at the "Poldl Hütte".
Poldl Gruber is not only a passionate host
but a golfer too. Some of his closest friends are his
previous ski colleagues, Franz Klammer, Werner Grissmann und Bojan Krizaj.
The "Sportalm" is situated in the centre
of St. Oswald - next to the cable car Brunnach,
several ski slopes and the ski school.
Our summer guests can make use of our
idyllic lawn for sunbathing.
"Sportalm" winter guests take advantage of
the convenient location of the house.
The ski school, ski kindergarten and several ski
lifts and slopes are right next to the house.
We also have a herb garden,
a sun terrace and a children's playground.
