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.

This intermediate to difficult tour begins at the Arzkasten car park, and offers many interesting sections. It is, however, a long and challenging ski tour with a climb of almost 340 metres. The ascent takes about 5-and-a-half hours. Observe the information provided by the avalanche warning service, as this route is often plagued by avalanches, especially through the steep corrie.



Public transport


You reach the starting point via the Inntal valley. At Telfs or Mötz, drive onto the Mieminger Plateau and continue through the village of Obsteig. After approx. 500 m turn right onto a forest road. After a few minutes' drive you will reach the Arzkasten car park, for which a charge is made. Postbus line no. 4176: Exit at Obsteig Holzleiten (approx. 30 minutes' walk to the Arzkasten starting point). www.vvt.at
