Pitztal Glacier

Pitztal Glacier & Rifflsee Ski Resorts, Tyrol, Austria

Pitztal is a beautiful valley in the Tyrol of Austria offering wonderful skiing and snowbording at Rifflesee & Pitztal Glacier ski resorts. Pitztal Glacier ski resort has Austria's highest glacier skiing at a lofty 3440m. Pitztal is one of the most snow sure ski areas in Europe with a season running from mid September through to May.

Combined with the nearby and family friendly Rifflsee, Pitztal has an eye-watering vertical of 1760m. That is enough to turn the thighs of the most hardened campaigner into mush.  A haven for powder seeking off-piste ski junkies, the new Wildspitzbahn will get you to a nose bleeding height of 3440m.  The panoramic views of the impressive Wildspitz will be appreciated by the intermediates and ignored by the experts as they harvest fresh lines.

The Powderhounds are reviewing Pitztal Glacier in 2018 and more detailed information and photos will follow.
