Off the beaten tracks
The door to the Ötztal snow paradise
For true winter sports fans the first part of the Ötztal Valley is a real ace in the hole: The villages and mountains around Oetz are easy and fast to get to from the Inntal and they offer surprising possibilities ranging from gentle pastures, fantastic views to steep mountains of an altitude around 3,000m. This means that sports enthusiasts can enjoy perfectly placed high-altitude cross-country skiing trails, sunny snow mountaineering tours and perfect toboggan runs. The dreamlike Lake Piburger See at the entrance of the valley is probably the most beautiful natural ice rink of all of Tirol.
