Ski area & Pitztal Glacier

Skiing and snowboarding in the ski areas of Rifflsee and on the Pitztal Glacier, the highest glacier in Tyrol, is something unique!

Skiing on the glacier: the altitude is crucial, for a great snow quality from October until late spring. On the glacier you will find wide and flat slopes for beginners but equally challenging runs for experts. NEW on the Pitztal Glacier : The Wildspitzbahn and the CAFE 3440 with the most breathtaking view of the Tyrolean mountains. The Riffelsee ski area is small but nice. Especially experienced skiers love the Riffelsee because of the great slopes.
