Ski Touring

Ski tours in the winter Realm

A ski tour is always an utterly delightful experience. Enjoy gliding silently uphill along pristine snow-covered slopes in an enchanting scenery. Once having made your way up, you will be rewarded for your efforts by the fabulous descent in the powder snow. A ski tour allows you to discover the winter world on the shores of Lake “Achensee” from a different angle. The physical activity in the very nature amid a tranquil environment and seemingly endless descents in the deep powder snow make this sport so attractive and enjoyable. 

 The “Rofangebirge” and “Karwendelgebirge” mountain ranges provide a wide range of routes for ski touring, including short and easy tours and challenging steep ascents. You may appreciate the connection of the routes to the local ski area. Many of the most sought-after ski tours, such as the ascent to the summit of “Rofanspitze” mountain, start in the ski area.

The emergency app of the Tyrolean mountain rescue service is available free of charge for smartphones fitted with the Android or iOS operating systems.
