Our guide Wolfgang is going to Tirol since fifty years, and he love’s it!
Due to its high altitude, this area is 100% snow guaranteed. With over a hundred glaciated peaks above 3000 meters and a huge number of ski resorts, Tirol offers an incredibly wild and unexplored terrain for tourists. Descents are long, and getting back to the car needs a bit of logistics, which makes most people give up before even trying. Great for us! Sometimes we use the climbing skins, but no longer than strictly necessary. We will travel from East to West. Staying in hotels in the main valley of the Inn to be flexible to go wherever we like. By car we will drive in maximum 1 hour to our perfect destination each day.
The tour starts in Innsbruck, where we will ski in the Stubaier Alps. On this first day, we will get used to the altitude, and improve our technique together, before going into more off-piste terrain. After lunch we will skin up to the Pfaff Joch for a spectacular run on the Sulzenauferner. Through a short climb, we will then pass the Beiljoch back to the ski resort. When we have snowfall during this day, we might go to the skistation next to Innsbruck like Schlick 2000 or Axams with beautiful terrain next to the woods for better control and sight.
On Tuesday we go to the narrow valley of Pitztal. There, we will stay 2 days in a hotel with the cablecar next door. The Fernerkogel and Mittagskogel are great for freeriding and around the Rifflsee we will find smaller but joyable descents. The brilliant Tachachferner, next to one of Tyrol’s highest peaks, the Wildspitze is one of Tirols biggest descents off-piste. Here we amble next to ice giants. On Thursday we will drive to Landeck for the last two nights. From this small city we have many options like Issgl, the beautiful Kaunergletscher or world famous ‘Stanton’ in the Arlberg.
Tirol is a trip for contrast aficionados: a good mix of intense days and cozy evenings.
