Ski touring in the Pitztal Valley

Mountain high, valley low

Ski touring is all about experiencing the landscape at your own pace. While some set off at top speed, keen to make it to the top as fast as possible, others prefer to take their time. However fast or slow, ski touring is a sport which is excellent for your overall fitness and takes you away from the marked pistes into a world of peace and quiet. The ski touring options in the Pitztal Valley vary from easy routes in monitored terrain to seriously challenging climbs on some of the region's highest mountains. Guides with extensive knowledge of the terrain are available to hire and will be happy to accompany you on your adventure.
