Top 10 things to do in Winter

Für Fragen und Informationen zu weiteren Highlights im Tal

und zu den genannten Aktivitäten, stehen wir gerne zur Verfügung.


Bei Fragen zu Skitourenmöglichkeiten, Winter-Wanderungen,

Öffnungszeiten, etc. sind wir gerne behilflich.

1. Skifahren am Hochzeiger


Sonnenver­wöhnte Pisten und ein eindrucks­volles Bergpanorama warten im Familienskigebiet Hochzeiger. Pitztaler Gastlichkeit, familiäre Atmosphäre und Schneesicherheit mit familienfreundlichen Angeboten.

Neun komfortable Liftanlagen und 40 Pistenkilometer 

in allen Schwierigkeitsgraden erfüllen kleine und große Skifahrerwünsche.


2. Skiarea Pitztal Glacier

with stop at Café 3.440


Skiing from September to April. If you are on the Pitztal Glacier, the highest ski area in Austria, you can enjoy an incredible panorama stretching from the Zugspitze through the Allgäu Alps and the Silvretta Group to the Rosengarten,

the Ötztal and Stubai Alps.

From the Cafe 3.440m, the highest in Austria,

the view is simply overwhelming.



3. Skiarea Riffelsee

The Rifflsee ski area offers an attractive range

of varied slopes for the entire family.

It impresses with its altitude and the snow safety.

On slope to the valley you have

the possibility to get to the 

Pitztal Glacier station.


4. Ice-Climbing on the 

Pitztal Waterfalls

They carry names like Havana, Monsterline,

Shark or Play with fire - and describe coordinates in paradise: When the imposing waterfalls of the Pitztal freeze to bizarre sculptures, ice climbers have a large selection.

With a total of 45 designated ice climbing areas of varying degrees of difficulty, the Pitztal is one of the absolute hot spots of the scene. Four ice climbing routes are nearby of our guesthouse. The routes "Stuibenfall", "Silberkönig", "Wasserleitungsfall" and "Softy".


5. Crosscountry Skiing 2.700m


If you want to be sure that there is enough snow

and the trails are perfectly prepared, then cross-country

skiing in the Pitztal is the right choice. Even the Talloipe,

which leads over 21.7 kilometers from the village of Wiese

up to the 1743 meter high Mandarfen, offers optimal conditions due to its altitude. On top of the Pitztal Glacier

at 2,760 meters, cross-country skiers can enjoy an altitude training in front of a breathtaking scenery from autumn to spring. In the ski resort Rifflsee you are on 2250m.


6. Toboggan Fun

Skiarea Hochzeiger

Fancy a toboggan evening? Then go to the Tanzalm. Every Thursday the gondola lift at the Hochzeiger is in operation after the regular skiing from 7.30 pm to 9 pm. Rent the sled at the valley station, drive up with the gondola to the middle station at 2,000m - and look forward to a thrilling adventure. About six kilometers and 550 meters in altitude, the illuminated natural toboggan run makes its way through the fairytale snowy pine forest to the starting point.


7. Pistenbully-Fahrern

am Hochzeiger

Sie wiegen zwölf Tonnen, sind viereinhalb Meter breit, haben 500 PS – und schwärmen in der Nacht aus. Urlauber können im Pistenbully direkt neben dem Fahrer einchecken und live dabei sein, wenn das Abenteuer Pistenbullyfahrt am Hochzeiger beginnt. Die außergewöhnliche Mitfahrgelegenheit wird wöchentlich angeboten.


8. Freeride in Pitztal

Wide slopes, endless powder and undiscovered lines await freeriders and snowboarders in the Pitztal. No matter what level a rider has - on the top of Tyrol there is something for everyone. The cable cars bring you up to

the Pitztal Glacier & Rifflsee skiarea. 

The most beautiful and safest off-piste can be explored

with certified mountain and ski guides from the

Freeride Center Pitztal.



9. Pitzis First Line Hochzeiger

It can´t be more exclusive! Even before the gondola start their regular operation, you can enjoy the most beautiful runs every Wednesday on freshly groomed slopes.

Followed by a mountain breakfast in the restaurant

your day will start fantastic.



10. Skitour to the Wildspitze (3.774m)

A must-do for every ski-hiker, of course, the ascent to the highest mountain in North Tyrol, the Wildspitze with 3,774 m. The descent takes place via the Taschachferner to Mittelberg. For safety we reccomend very good mountain experience

or our local guides with the best training secrets and untouched nature included.
