Skiing on the Pitztal Glacier in Tirol

High-altitude skiing at an elevation of 3,440 metres

Surrounded by a series of summits higher than 3,000 metres, visitors can take in the stunning panoramic view from the free-floating sun terrace.

Boarders paradise: The snowpark Pitztal Glacier is the meeting point for serious snowboarders. Three areas offer rails, jumps and boxes in all ability levels, from beginner to pro.

Skiers seeking a genuine adrenaline rush can go freeriding. The Hintere Brunnkogel mountain offers pristine powder at an elevation of 3,440 metres. But: safety first! Book a professional mountain guide from the Mountain Sports School Pitztal or Freeride Center Pitztal to accompany you.

Those who want to discover the pristine solitude of nature at a slower pace can go backcountry skiing. There are numerous ski tours of varying range and difficulty, so that even skiers who are new to this sport can enjoy the wintery scenery.
