Piste ski tours

The great thing about ski tours: you enjoy peace and quiet on the ascent and have great fun when skiing downhill. Normally this is only available off-piste in open terrain, but since the 2021/22 winter there has been a new offer in Hochoetz directly in the ski area. Ötztal’s very 1st piste ski tour runs along a forest path up to the Hochoetz top station and back down into the valley on the ski piste. Here you can explore this tour.
