Cross-country Ski, Winter Hike & Toboggan

Winter Activities & Sports

The Pitztal Valley is an insider tip among cross-country skiers.

On a total of 70 kilometres of perfectly groomed cross-country ski trails, you can explore the unique natural beauty of the valley of Pitztal. The cross-country ski trail starts directly from the PIZ hotel.

The high-altitude cross-country ski tracks on the Pitztal Glacier (2,600 m) and at Lake Rifflsee (2,280 m) have guaranteed snow from November to May. The 20 km-long Innerpitztal valley run (1,170 m to 1,740 m) offers ideal conditions for cross-country skiers of all abilities

from late November to early April (classic, skating and ski touring trails).


Snowshoe tours allow you to experience nature in its purest form.
Discover the natural beauty of Pitztal along the valley trail or explore the "1st Pitztal snowshoe trail" through the rugged and wonderful Taschach gorge, followed by a hot wine stop at the Pitztaler Ski Hut.


We are happy to organise equipment and guided tours for you.


Many winter hiking trails lead you to the most beautiful spots in the Pitztal Valley. The free ski bus takes you to all starting points.
