The figures alone are a bit of all right - 266 three-thousand metre mountains, 1500 square kilometres of unspoilt landscape and natural surroundings as far as the eye can see. To describe the settings in East Tyrol as optimal, would be an understatement. They are more than perfect. It would almost seem that East Tyrol was invented for ski tours. And if it hadn’t been invented, it would be invented, when people explored and experienced the natural surroundings in East Tyrol. Heading out on ski tours is a conscious decision. Anyone who goes on ski tours, is opting for slopes which are not overcrowded. They are looking for seclusion and an unspoilt area. On ski tours you are looking to experience what is authentic about nature. A yearning for tranquillity on the pistes, far removed from the paths trodden by the masses.
Just enjoy the ascent, take a deep breath and enjoy the natural surroundings. Be in the moment, wholly focussed on the now. Then when you have reached your destination, the descent through the powder snow. Pistes that you have been waiting for and which belong to you alone. The many three-thousand metre mountains make it easy to search for suitable places, in the National Park Region Hohe Tauern, in Defereggental, the Lienz Dolomites, in the Tirol Gailtal or the Lesachtal, these places are like a promise of tranquillity, relaxation and of adventure at the same time.
Ski tours in Villgratental are regarded as an insider tip, the only valley in Tyrol without ski lifts. It is a symbol for the whole region, which takes another path than the rest of Tyrol. The ski tours are therefore the core part of winter sport in East Tyrol.
