Ski touring in the Passeiertal Valley

Passeiertal Valley touring ski paradise: discover the natural gem in South Tyrol

The high-alpine landscape that awaits you while ski touring in the Passeiertal Valley leaves nothing to be desired. Along the southern side of the main alpine ridge – surrounded by the Texel Group National Park, the Sarntal Alps and the Stubai Alps – you can discover 32 wonderfully beautiful tours. From 600 to 1,850 m, the valleys in the Meraner Land offer both beginners and those with more experience everything that their ski touring heart could desire. The rear Passeiertal Valley and Timmels Bridge are the starting point for numerous ski tours in the Passeiertal Valley, for example to the Erensee, Glaitner Hochjoch, Botzer Joch and Timmelsjoch and the Kreuzspitze. As a reward for completing the ascent, you’ll find unspoilt powder and firn slopes.
