Galtür Ski Resort Austria

Galtuer is another of several fabulous ski areas in the Paznaun valley of the Austrian Tirol. The Paznaun is best known for the vibrant, party central Ischgl but is also home to some fantastic ‘small’ ski areas including Kappl & See. As with most ‘small’ skiing areas in Austria, their lifts & terrain are world class & Galtür is no exception.

Skiing & Snowboarding Terrain

The Galtuer ski resort has a skiable vertical of 700m, starting from a high base (for Austria anyway!) of 1600m elevation. Its nearly 50km of trails & ski routes are geared way more toward intermediates & advanced riders than beginners. It also has a nice focus on exploring the off-piste terrain. Great for some, not so good for others. The ski lifts include two modern gondolas providing a comfortable ride up the deliciously cold, north-aspect terrain below the 2671m Ballunspitze.

Before we check it out, view the Galtür ski trail map here to get a sense of what is available.

Ski Passes

The ski resorts of the Paznaun valley, including Galtur, each have a cost-effective 'local' area ski pass as well as access to the broader Silvretta Pass. The Silvretta Pass is more expensive but includes unfettered access to all the combined ski lifts & trails of Galtuer, Ischgl-Samnaun, Kappl & See resorts. Free local ski buses link the resorts together.

Where is Galtuer Austria?

Funnily enough the Galtür ski resort is located near the hamlet of Wirl, 2km of west of Galtuer in the Austrian Tyrol’s Paznaun valley. Shame they didn’t call the resort Wirl – sounds way more interesting! The Paznaun’s best known town & ski resort, Ischgl, is only 11km from the lift base & connected by free ski bus in winter.

Access is best via Innsbruck - around 112km by road away. The nearest major centre is Landeck-Zams, 42km north of Wirl. The Paznaun valley is well serviced from all airports by train & then bus via Landeck-Zams train station. Closest major gateway airports are Innsbruck (INN), Munich (MUC) & Zurich (ZRH).

Landeck-Zams train station is on the main line between Switzerland & Innsbruck. The route 260 bus is free for skiers from Landeck all the way up the Paznaun valley to Galtuer & Wirl in around 70min. Other free ski-buses run up & down the valley linking all the villages & smaller ski resorts. It is certainly possible to do day trips to Galtür from Landeck by free ski bus. Search & book train tickets to Landeck-Zams here. Buy bus tickets from the driver, or if in ski attire, travel for free.

With COVID-19 still on everyone’s mind, some people may feel safest travelling by private transfer to Galtuer & the Paznaun valley. Search & book all private transfers to Galtuer here.

Galtür Accommodation

Whilst Ischgl might dominate the Paznaun valley, smaller villages & towns can provide a welcome respite from its high energy environment. Galtuer & Wirl are no exception. The proximity to the local ski resort is wonderful, but the village location further up the valley provides for a far less crowded bus link down to the vast Ischgl-Samnaun ski resort. In fact, if looking for a quiet alternative to Ischgl, but still want to ski there, we would recommend staying in Galtür (or Wirl).

Ski Rentals, Lessons & Guiding

Our local partners have a convenient equipment rental location in the centre of Galtuer, plus another just near the gondola valley station at Wirl. Receive a discount when you search & book via this Galtür-Wirl Ski & Snowboard Rental link.

A mind-boggling array of ski instructors, ski schools & mountain guides ply their trade in the Paznaun valley & its numerous resorts, including See. To narrow down the field, search & book a private/group lesson or mountain guide with the best providers via our Paznaun Valley Ski Lessons & Guiding page.

Nearby Ski Resorts

Aside from the 3 other Paznaun valley ski resorts of Ischgl, Kappl & See, another sneaky little resort is on the way. The secret stash of Venet above Landeck-Zams is a beauty on a powder day or for a quick leg stretch. If coming via Innsbruck, the local resorts are sensational and diverse. And of course, Ischgl is interlinked with Samnaun in Switzerland ensuring a little cross-border international fun.
