Ski touring recommendations

This page will give you some ideas for ski tours in the region of Innsbruck. A great way to get a wonderful insight into the wonders of winter, especially under good conditions. These are, of course, only suggestions, as the final responsibility lies with the tourer to inform him or herself about current conditions before setting out.

Ski touring is a sport in which the risks should never be underestimated. We cannot accept any responsibility for snow conditions, avalanche risks and other outside influences. Every ski tourer is responsible for their own adequate avalanche protection and should check all current conditions with Tyrol's Avalanche Warning Service.

The route continues along the piste to just past the middle station.

If you want to continue up to Pfriemesköpfl, follow the sign to the ski route near the "Götzner Abfahrt" slope, where you bypass the steep slope to Pfriemesköpfl.

Important information for on-piste ski touring (Source: Kuratorium für alpine Sicherheit)   The ski pistes are primarily available for cable car and lift users. To avoid accidents and conflicts, we ask you to observe the following recommendations in addition to adhering to the FIS rules: 1. Observe warnings and local regulations 2. Observe piste closures when a piste or a section of a piste is closed. Dangerous and life-threatening situations may occur when piste machinery is in use, especially cable winches, etc. Pistes may, therefore, be closed for safety reasons for the duration of the work. 3. Only tour up the edge of the piste and in single file. 4. Only cross the piste at points where you are clearly visible and leave plenty of space between one another. 5. Only ski down the edge of freshly prepared pistes. Tracks that freeze overnight can severely affect the quality of the piste. 6. Leave the piste before 6 pm or before 10 pm on Thursdays. 7. Be visible. If it is dark or in the case of poor visibility, wear a head torch, reflective clothing, etc. 8.
