Skiing vacation on Tyrol’s highest glacier!
Starting point for the popular ski tour to Tyrol’s highest mountain – the Wildspitze 3.774 m

You can also choose from Rifflsee mountain railroad, Hochzeiger mountain railroad and the Imst skiing area. All to be enjoyed with one ski pass – the Pitz-Regio-Card. In addition to skiers, snowboarders also get their money’s worth: snowboard fun park, freestyle park and half pipe are available in Jerzens and on the Pitztal Glacier.
100% safe, 100% fun. What is true for the snow is also true for the Pitz Express panoramic railroad. The “star” of modern mountain railroads, which carries you quickly and comfortably high up and puts fantastic slopes at your feet. Forget the stress of everyday life and relax with us…
Two tracks in the snow… Limitless freedom off the slopes.
Safely guided by state-certified mountain and ski guides, ski tours, high altitude ski tours and ski traverses are a very special experience in the Pitztal…
Away from the noise of the world… Exercise in the winter mountains.
On Pitztal’s freshly groomed hiking trails through snow-covered forests. Move without much effort in the snowy winter landscape. Your path leads through forests and over snowfields, along frozen streams and watercourses, along trails and cross-country skiing tracks. In the depths of winter as in the warming spring sun, a real experience.
Here in Pitztal the winter is long, we have snow until the beginning of May, as long as you can ski, cross-country ski or snowboard here.
Because of its altitude, the Pitztal is also perfect for touring, the ultimate sport for those who want to find themselves and conquer the wild Pitztal winter landscape at their own pace during the day or at night.
Good for the circulation, blood pressure, muscles, but especially for the soul.
When touring you meet yourself, feel your own body, thoughts and feelings!
Ski tours on the roof of Tyrol:
- the majestic Wildspitze at 3774 m
- the demanding Linke Fernerkogel at 3225 m
- the K2 at 3135 m
For those who prefer a more leisurely pace and don’t necessarily need to go high, snowshoeing would be a great alternative.
Especially in the Kaunergrat Nature Park there are great circular hiking trails ideal for beginners (Possibly also with a guide). Snowshoeing makes the winter landscape seem like a fairy tale, through the slow pace you can experience a special experience with all your senses. Glistening snow, forests and meadows shrouded in white, sun rays in the red face and the sound of your own breath, just great!
I indulge myself.
I am glad.

OTHER LEISURE ACTIVITIES IN THE PITZTAL VALLEY
WINTER IN THE PITZTAL VALLEY SHOWS MANY FACES: DARING ICE CLIMBING, SOCIAL ICE SKATING…
Now it is official what guests have long felt: sport in healthy mountain air does good, even better! This is proven by new sports science studies… Speaking of moving moments: A gentle but efficient way to refuel vitality is cross-country skiing! This stimulates strength and “Kondi”, promotes circulation and coordination. And apart from the fact that there is probably no more beautiful “vitality studio” than snow-covered mountains: The pounds fall quite incidentally…
There are natural toboggan runs in Arzl and in Wenns-Piller (illuminated). And for night tobogganing on the Hochzeiger, even the cable car works overtime as an ascent aid…
In winter, on the road with sticks. Almost like cross-country skiing and yet different. Get away from the general grind on Pitztal’s freshly groomed hiking trails through snow-covered forests. Can Nordic Walking be beautiful…

NO HUNTER’S TALK
This is a kind of law of nature – and you don’t need hunter’s lingo to understand it: Nature touches us the more, the less we touch it!
In the hunt for ever new impressions and experiences, one should never forget the basic virtues of a hunter – observing, being quiet, respecting nature and keeping an eye on the balance of life. Those who indulge in the passion of hunting will find a paradise in the Pitztal. But a wide “territory” also opens up in a figurative sense: gentle hikes, for example, lead into their own emotional worlds. Who follows fresh tracks, comes so seen the life on the track, the nature of things… and sees with a little luck deer, rabbits, squirrels. Or ibexes. On request, we are happy to arrange hunting permits or talk to the hunters if we may be present at the game feeding…

LEAFLET WINTER HIKING
THE 1X1 OF SNOWSHOEING:
Snowshoeing itself is easy to learn, you should have the snowshoes explained once, for example, when and how do I fix the snowshoes, how do I use the climbing aid and what is it for. Snowshoeing is quite strenuous and sufficient liquid, e.g. a thermos of tea and provisions should be taken along.
Furthermore, as with ski tours go: We are in high alpine terrain, for beginners we strongly recommend to stay on the marked winter trails.
For hikes off the marked trails we recommend a guided tour with a trained guide.
- Stay on marked paths
- Check your equipment and provisions
- do not go alone
- Keep an eye on the avalanche situation and weather forecast
Hiking poles, snowshoes, backpacks and thermos flask are available on loan here in the house.
