Winter in Galtür
Once, hiking was an all-year luxury for poets, researchers, or rich adventurers. Thus “An Alpine Idyll” of Ernest Hemingway refers to his visit of Galtür at the beginning of the 20th century. While Hemingway and his wife were still isolated phenomena at that time, hiking and ski touring are now widespread activities in mountain sports and are still becoming ever more popular. Hence Galtür is the ideal place for all sports enthusiasts!
It’s not the performance that counts
but the experience…
The ski area of the highest village in the Paznaun valley shines not only because of the snow and the sun. 8 ski lifts, 40 kilometers of slope up to 2.297 meters above sea level, 20 kilometers of deep snow variations, ski- and snowboard schools as well as night skiing let the ski area become the place to be. Here, your gaze can wander over clouds, peaks and the Paznaun valley while you wedel down the slopes.
Without the aid of ski-lifts, ski touring is certainly the most ecological and “honest” variant of skiing. Amidst the summits of the 3000-metre peaks and away from the hustle and bustle, the mind can relax and absorb the silence of the snow-covered landscape. Tours of all degrees of difficulty also invite newcomers to this wonderful sport. Ski-touring courses show you techniques and theory before you head out into the white fields of the mountains for the first time.
59 kilometers in the sunshine and through snow-covered woods – like we Tiroleans say: dreamlike. Dreamlike are also the competent advice and comfortable infrastructure – you just got to get ready! The cross-country trails lead up to 2.036 meters above sea level, which practically lets you linger at the peaks of the Tyrolean mountains.
