The entire valley enjoys breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains as Pitztal is far away from mass tourism, making it the perfect retreat for relaxation and family time.
What We Love About Pitztal
Sitting at an altitude of 3440 metres, you really feel on top of the world in the Pitztal ski region. You can ski virtually all-year round, and this hidden gem is less than one hour from Innsbruck airport! Pitztal also has the highest cable car in Austria, and a fabulous cafe at 3,440m to enjoy the highest coffee in Austria.
In the Pitztal you can enjoy skiing from autumn until early summer as the glacier is the highest glacier in Austria. The Pitztaler Gletscher and Rifflsee are directly connected to the resort Hochzeiger – Jerzens im Pitztal and offer a total of 80km of skiing. With a wide range of easy, moderate and difficult ski pistes on wide glacier slopes or runs through trees, the resort is perfect for beginners as well as more advanced skiers. Pitztal offers a fabulous variety of skiing from secluded powder snow slopes to firm glacier runs. There is also a funpark and toboggan run which are great for kids!
This high altitude resort is best knows for its winter season but during the summertime there are numerous high-level hiking trails which offer spectacular panoramic views. For example, the ‘Pitztaler Almenweg’ trail enjoys lots of stops at mountain huts for refreshments. There are also plenty of other activities such as rock climbing, mountain biking and horse-riding to ensure an active alpine summer.
