With the mighty Weißkugel mountain, and many other three-thousand meter high mountains, the area around the Schnalskamm ridge is one of the finest ski areas in the Alps.
The Schnalstal Glacier Cable Car shortens the ascent, and ski tourers can travel up the mountains relatively easily and quickly
Trained mountain guides
are available to accompany winter sports lovers on ski tours through the Oetztal Alps
. They have tour suggestions and can lead tours to peaks off the beaten path. The two most important bases for ski touring, the Similaunhütte
mountain hut and the Schöne Aussicht
mountain hut, remain open until early May.
