Spring Skiing in Austria
Late season skiing in the Pitztal Valley
The best time for skiers who aren’t quite ready to give up the joys of winter fun. It may officially be spring but now is the best time to be skiing in Tirol. Due to its high altitude of 1,500 metres, the ski area Hochzeiger is snow-secure until the end of April. The perfect opportunity to carve down the near empty slopes and enjoy winter at its best.
Many winter sports enthusiasts prefer the end of the winter season to go skiing. The mild temperatures invite to sit outside and take in the splendid view over the white summits while soaking up the sun.
What is so special about the ski finish in the Pitztal valley?
- The ski area Hochzeiger is absolutely snow-sure until the end of April
- Austria’s highest elevation ski region Pitztal Glacier is only 30 minutes from Andy Hotel Apartment Wellness and it is open until mid-May
- Ski region Hoch-Imst is open until mid-March
- Great events like the “Mountain Event Hochzeiger”, the fabulous ski show “Fire & Ice” in Jerzens, 3rd Geo caching in St. Leonhard, the Pitztal snow festival and many more
- The big run on the ski areas is over, it is quiet and the slopes are near empty
