Skiing tours in Ötztal
Don’t hesitate when the mountains call.

Because, it’s your invitation to penetrate deep into their soul – to initiate introductory rides over ‘virgin’ slopes - between bizarre outcrops of rock, into the everlasting ice of the glaciers – into a world so strange, it’s almost like being on a distant planet. Any sort of resistance is pointless. To try and resist the magical attraction of white-blue shimmering snowfields, the highlighted sunshine and innumerable altitude kilometres, has simply no sense. Instead, just don your touring skis, get a touring guide and discover the high Alpine terrain, with its numerous protective Alpine huts, and the freedom of over 3,000 metres of altitude. This is all accessible direct from Sölden, even in springtime, when glorious ‘firn’ snow conditions are prevalent and change the terrain into a ‘diamond’-like paradise. Ski touring in Ötztal represents a challenge for real pioneers. Book your room in the ‘base camp’ now: Hotel***star The Bäckelar Wirt.

Traces in the snow. Everlasting ice, powder snow and ‘firn’ (corn snow). And, the most breath-taking views, you can ever imagine: Ski touring in Ötztal.
