Skiing regions

Valley with almost unlimited possibilities

The ski area at Hochzeiger is a true dream for sun skiers and families. High up on the slopes you can enjoy a unique 360° panorama, in the numerous huts you will be spoiled with local delicacies and Pitzi and his friends are waiting for the smallest guests.

The Pitztal Glacier and the Rifflsee ski area share a common ski area and thus offer you over 67 kilometers of slopes for pure skiing pleasure. In addition to the perfectly groomed slopes, other highlights await you here, such as the X Park, the largest ski touring park in Austria, as well as numerous, picturesque winter hiking trails.

Cross country skiing

Whether you want to go high up, or prefer to stay down in the valley thanks to the wide variety of trails, everyone will find their own personal cross-country skiing highlight in the Pitztal.
The valley trail stretches over 21.7km and leads along the Pitze from Wiese up to Mandarfen. For those who prefer to breathe in some high-altitude air, we recommend the high-altitude trail in the Rifflsee ski area at an altitude of over 2,200 meters.
