Ski tours in the Pitztal

With state-certified ski guide

The Pitztal in Tyrol is a 40 km long side valley of the Inn River that branches off to the south near Imst. Framed by more than 50 three-thousand metre peaks, it is a ski touring paradise in the middle of the Ötztal Alps. Thanks to the high altitude, we still find optimal snow conditions until late spring.

Pitztal Ski Tours with Ski Guide

In the Pitztal, ski tours await us in a fascinating, high alpine setting that is unrivalled in Austria. The ski tours in the Pitztal are varied and diverse. Gentle glacier ascents are sometimes followed by easy climbs and almost always a fantastic descent with many metres of depth. The mostly favourable ratio of ascent to descent will delight skiers.

All ski tours in the Pitztal valley listed here are also available as Day trip bookable!
