REACH THE SUMMIT THROUGH YOUR OWN MUSCLE POWER
Ski touring in Pitztal
The Hochzeiger ski resort the Pitztaler glacier and the Natur Park Kaunergrat are ideal areas for ski touring for both beginners and the experienced.
The Ötztaler Alps, which geographically Pitztal belongs to, offer real, wild back-country experiences without the hustle and bustle, and stress. Guided tours and courses for beginners and advanced skiers give everyone the opportunity to experience the adventure of “ski touring” in Pitztal.
With a local mountain guide you can enjoy the most spectacular ski tours away from the hustle and bustle of the slopes.
The highlight is definitely the Wildspitze, at 3774m the highest mountain in North Tyrol and the second highest Austria, ending in a descent over the Taschach Ferner to Mandarfen.
