Highlights at over 2,000 meters
Hidden away in the Stubai Alps, on the Kühtai Saddle between the Nedertal valley and the Sellrain Valley, lies Austria’s highest and most snow-sure winter sports destination after the glaciers: Kühtai. Full of character. Pristine. Rooted in nature. Where skiing and hiking fun start at over 2,020 metres. Kühtai has been a hotspot for alpine winter sports since 1909. It hosted the 2012 Winter Youth Olympic Games and was one of the venues for the 2014 Women’s Alpine Skiing World Cup. Ski-in/out: step out of your hotel and onto the slopes. The perfectly-prepared pistes and untouched powder are just begging to be explored – and thanks to the snow guarantee from the beginning of December until after Easter, the skiing fun lasts even longer. When summer comes and the alpine roses bloom, Kühtai becomes a sea of flowers and is transformed into a hiking paradise. Kilometre-long hiking trails weave through the high-alpine terrain up to an altitude of over 3,000 metres.

Summer holidays - from alpine roses to autumn delights
Perfect timing for the alpine roses: this rare alpine flower blooms every year from the end of June to the end of July, setting the alpine meadows in Kühtai ablaze with a colourful display of pinks and purples.
This is also hiking season – diverse and rich in variety. At one with nature – with mountains close enough to touch. A whole host of impressive 2,000 and 3,000 metre peaks in and around Kühtai are just waiting to be conquered. And the countless trails ensure that mountaineers, families, rock climbers and leisurely hikers will all find the perfect pace, gradient and challenge for them. Exciting encounters with nature, crystal clear alpine lakes and impressive mountain landscapes – these are just some of the natural attractions in Kühtai. From the top of the “Drei-Seen-Bahn” chairlift, you can visit the Plenderlesee lake at over 2,350 metres, the deep blue Finstertaler reservoir, the Sulzkogel at 3,016 metres or the Guben-Schweinfurter mountain hut. The start of the high-alpine via ferrata is just a 20-minute walk away. Or experience the panoramic views from the back of a horse on a guided hack through the mountains around Kühtai. Mountain sports enthusiasts aren’t the only ones who treasure the tranquillity, the pristine surroundings and the healthy mountain air in Kühtai – Olympic champions also come here to train at the Kühtai High-Altitude Training Centre.
