Skiing in Osttirol

Ample space on the pistes, fantastic panoramas and short waiting times at the ski lifts.

Winter in Osttirol is pure and authentic, natural and powerful, sensual and romantic. The privileged location on the south side of the Alps plays an important role in this: many sunny days with an exceptionally high assurance of snow. Osttirol with its 266 three-thousand-metre peaks – including Grossglockner – offers you a breathtaking setting for your skiing holiday.


The Osttirol ski slopes for downhill skiing impress with a special quality. There are seven ski resorts in the region, offering everything from leisurely beginner slopes to a sporty World Cup piste. Skiers and snowboarders appreciate the high snow assurance and the many sunny days. Plenty of space on the piste and no long waiting times at the lifts – that is typical Osttirol. Those who want to get to know and enjoy the resorts and their most enjoyable downhill slopes can do so with Osttirol ski instructors. Attractive for families: the ski pass “Ski Hit Osttirol” offers children’s rates for young people up to 18 years old.


With just one ski pass you can experience winter unlimited in the Osttirol ski resorts: with the Ski Hit Osttirol ski pass! Absolute snow assurance, no waiting times at the lifts, optimally prepared and marked pistes and the most hours of sunshine on the south of the Alps are a guarantee for your winter fun.
