Ski touring

For lovers of nature, ski touring is probably the "ultimate ski discipline". Discover the unspoilt natural world with your own muscle power, conquer peaks on your own − the reward is fantastic descents on pristine terrain. There's hardly any other region in Austria that can offer so many "tour classics" as Hall-Wattens: The Volders and Watten valleys with the Wattener Lizum and the Glungezer rank as ski touring heaven.

With this selection of thoroughly enjoyable ski tours, we've tried to provide you with accurate and reliable information. However, we cannot accept liability of any kind. Responsibility for the choice of route and any risk assessment must be made by no-one else but the tourer.
