7th Austria Ski Touring Festival

23-26. January 2020 in St. Jakob in the Defereggental

At the 7th Austria Ski Touring Festival in St.Jakob in the Defereggental once again it is all about ski touring. It brings experts and amateur sportspeople together – for more fun and safety on the mountain.


Osttirol with its 266 three-thousand-metre peaks has long been established as a ski touring region. Countless tours await you with views of Grossglockner, Grossvenediger and the Dolomites, slopes with deep snow entice you to leave your trails there.  With the 7th Austria Ski Touring Festival on 23-26 January 2020, Osttirol does justice to the ski touring book and presents the sport to a wide public. Interesting presentations and films await visitors and of course the opportunity to try out the best routes directly together with Osttirol mountain guides.

The Osttirol ski touring weeks powered by Hervis

Apart from the many ski touring destinations in the Villgratental and the Tyrolean Gail and Lesachtal, which can then be tried out extensively straight away following the Ski Touring Festival during the ski touring week “White dreams in the powder and compact snow”, there are worthwhile destinations in the Hohe Tauern National Park all around Kals at Grossglockner, the wildly romantic Defereggental or the Virgental.

An insider tip are ski tours in Defereggental, starting from the ski centre St. Jakob i. Defereggental or at the Staller Sattel – with a view over the border to South Tyrol. These are best experienced during the Defereggen ski touring week “Compact & powder snow”. You can already scout out the destinations during the 7th Austria Ski Touring Festival.

The Grossglockner ski touring week in Kals is organised by the Kals mountain guides – including ascents of the highest mountain in Austria, Grossglockner (3798 m), as well as trips to the best ski touring regions of Osttirol. The “Ski Touring Week Venediger Group” – ski touring days in the Virgental – is an absolute highlight for ski touring aces. Accompanied by qualified mountain guides, sights are set on some of the most distinctive peaks.
