Sparkling peaks, snowy mountainsides and crystal-clear air bring magic to the Ötztal. Spend your holidays doing snowshoeing, on snowbound pistes or in the thermal bath. Eventually you will be captivated, whatever you decide for!


Hochötz & Kühtai

Easily accessible, personal and authentic – these are the advantages of the family-paradise in the fore Ötztal. The ski resort Hochötz features a comprehensive and sportive offer for beginners up to professionals.



This is the collective name of the two ski resorts Obergurgl and Hochgurgl and it is one of the first-rate ski resort of the alps. The high altitude of the resort (from 1800m a.s.l. to 3080m a.s.l.) allows you to go skiing from November until the beginning of May.



Sölden is one of the venues of the alpine ski world cup and one of the most famous winter sports resort of the alps. The amount of pistes in various levels of difficulty and the perfect conditions turn your winter holidays in a unique experience.


Winter hiking

The Ötztal is blessed with a lot of extraordinary spots, which, especially in winter, guarantee for a mystical and silent flair – definitely worth a visit.
Put on a warm jacket, sally out across the charming winter wonderland and discover the most beautiful spots.

Experience that much

Cross-country skiing

There are 185 km of perfectly groomed cross-country ski-tracks for both, the skating and classic style. Either you want to cross-country ski on a higher altitude in Niederthai and Gries at Längenfeld or in the valley in Längenfeld and Umhausen, there are no limits for your pleasure in the snow.


Ski mountaineering

Ski mountaineering combines uniqueness, adventure, sport and wonder of nature. It brings diversion and pure impressions of nature. Peaks such as Wildspitze (3774m), Weißkugel (3739m) and Similaun (3606m) will make a ski mountaineer’s heart skip a beat.



Experience the Ötztaler winter-wonderland in the most romantic way possible. Snowshoeing can be much more than a relaxing type of movement in the snow, though. Take an attempt on the run and it turns into an athletic exercise. Snowshoeing during a full-moon night is the most romantic experience you could imagine.


Ice skating

Our personal highlight!

Ice skating on the lake Piburg! Put on your skates.. You will be stoked!



The illuminated sled run can be seen from far away. Organised sledding evenings and unique transfers to the huts turn these events into special experiences for the entire family. With snowmobiles or even on the sled will the participants be shuttled to the starting line.
