Experience the fascination of the wintry mountain landscape away from the pistes in a totally new way, with the best ski tours in the border triangle! Ski tours mean a contemplative ascent and a fast descent. Interesting ski tours with a powdery finish will delight all skiers, with the added reward of a “wow”-inducing panorama.  The border triangle of the regions of Kaunertal, the Tyrolean Oberland and Nauders am Reschenpass provides ski touring routes of all levels of difficulty – from easy to challenging, from mid-height to 3,000 metres.

The wide range of single and multiple-day ski tours is also complemented with various night-time ski tours along the pistes. Beginners can enjoy a guided ski tour; those that prefer to head out alone should adapt the tour to match the current snow, weather and avalanche conditions. Safety is always the utmost priority. Up in the mountains, all tourers are responsible for themselves and for the whole group. You should always carry complete avalanche equipment (avalanche transceiver, probe and shovel) and a mobile phone. Ideally you should carry an airbag rucksack, which will keep you at the surface in the case of an avalanche. Free SAAC courses (snow and avalanche awareness camps) – multi-day avalanche camps with background information and practical tips for anyone wishing to head away from the pistes – teach you how to handle your equipment under expert instruction and give you information on judging snowpack, selecting routes and understanding avalanches.

Guided ski tours - every Friday!

Guided ski tours are offered every week, depending on the snow conditions. Inexperienced tourers are recommended to have an experienced mountain guide accompany them on their exploration of the grand mountain landscape of the Tyrolean Oberland.
Valuable insider tips, the highest possible safety and the best organisation make a trip out into the deep snow unforgettable!
