At an altitude of 2,020 metres above sea level, Kühtai is already higher than some mountain huts. This unique location makes the village an absolute paradise for skiing and hiking. In winter, Kühtai is the highest ski resort in Austria. In summer, it's the highest starting point for hikes. The resort captivates visitors with its crystal clear mountain lakes embedded in the high mountain landscape. Kühtai is best reached by car, as it is only around 40 kilometres or a 45-minute drive from Innsbruck, the capital city of Tyrol.

Kühtai ski resort

Thanks to its location at an altitude of 2,020 metres above sea level, Kühtai offers the ultimate skiing experience. The village, which is also called Kühtai, lies in the centre of the ski resort at 2,020 metres above sea level and the slopes all go up from there. This makes Kühtai the highest ski resort in Austria except for the glaciers. Kühtai is so snow-sure that you can ski there…

Off the slopes

Kühtai is also home to lots of fun winter sports that take you away from the ski slopes. Cross-country ski trails, a toboggan run and snowshoeing add great variety to your holiday. If you want, you can even learn how to build an igloo in Kühtai.

The Kühtai High Alpine Road

The special charms of nature and an often completely new view of the mountain landscapes - all those who are looking for impressive mountain scenery as well as driving fun and a feeling of curves will find just that on the Kühtai High Alpine Road. On the way to the Kühtai, you will experience unique landscapes that constantly change with the altitude. And the pass summit at 2,020 metres opens up views of overwhelming, untouched nature. And on top of that, toll and vignette free.

In summer: hiking

Kühtai is very lively in winter but then transforms into a tranquil summer hiking destination. The village is surrounded by tours and trails that tempt visitors up into the high-alpine mountains. It is particularly beautiful when the alpine roses are in bloom and the mountain slopes are bathed in bright pink. Thanks to the high altitude, you can enjoy fresh, low-pollen air and pleasant temperatures when hiking in the area around Kühtai.
