Skiing in the Pitztal

The Pitztal Glacier is a dream for all natural snow lovers and starts the winter season as early as October, because at over 3,000 m there is always fresh snow - all year round. Together with the Rifflsee ski area, skiers have the choice between rapid descents or pistes that invite you to carve.

Ski tours

The mountain experience away from the ski slopes is fascinating, especially when one or the other ski tour leads to a 3000-metre peak. Ideal starting points here are the mountain station on the Pitztal glacier and the mountain station of the Rifflseebahn. Those wishing to embark on a ski tour for the first time will find beginner-friendly tours. However, those who would like to explore the DACH of TIROL can venture a ski tour from peak to peak here.

Ice climbing

Ice climbers are can’t wait for the cold season to start, when Tyrol’s waterfalls freeze and snow and ice rule in Pitztal. The valley’s 45 waterfalls usually freeze from December onwards and offer ice climbers ideal conditions to practise their sport until the end of March.
