Glungezer Ski Resort Austria

Glungezer is an Innsbruck ski resort that rises high above the village of Tulfes & is in the process of replacing its vintage lifts & bringing its 1,350m vertical of north-aspect ski terrain into the modern world. Some of the best freeride off-piste terrain in the region is off Glungezer's 2,677m summit & we can’t wait to try it!

Skiing & Snowboarding, Lifts & Terrain

Just like nearby Patscherkofel, Glungezer has undergone a recent modernisation that changes the way one skis the resort. Modern gondolas & chairs provide a comfortable ride all the way up to the highest lifted point at 2,304m Schartenkogel. The full descent back down to Tulfes is well over 8km in length & one of the longest in the region. The 23km of piste trials sounds smallish, and it is. However, the skin to the top of Glungezer peak is a must and adds a true powder hound dimension to a visit, not to mention a potential skiable vertical descent of over 1650m - outstanding!

see here for the Glungezer ski trail map.

Interlinked Lift Ticket with Ski+City Pass

Glungezer already has a good value ski lift pass, however the resort is also part of Innsbruck’s Ski plus City Pass area which includes 13 ski resorts ranging from the small, like Nordkette, Oberperfuss & Patscherkofel, the in-between like Axamer Lizum, Bergeralm & Schlick 2000, up to the larger such as Stubai Glacier and Kuhtai (the highest resort base in Austria). A Ski + City pass is for a minimum 2 days and allows unlimited access to all 13 ski & sled resorts, plus a wide range of attractions in the city of Innsbruck.

Where is Glungezer Austria?

The Glungezer ski resort is in the Tyrol, a 16½km (20min) drive from the centre of the world's greatest ski city, Innsbruck. The village of Tulfes is located at the base of the Glungezer gondola & a piste trail ends right on its outskirts. The major town of Hall im Tirol is 10km by road in the valley below Tulfes.

The nearest international airport for flight origins from within Europe & the UK is Innsbruck (INN), located a few minutes down the road. The excellent Munich (MUC) airport is the gateway for everyone else. Search & book here for all airport transfers.

Regular buses (route 4134) travel from Innsbruck to Tulfes via the village of Aldrans in 35min. Alternatively, one can catch a train to Hall-im-Tirol & change to the bus for Tulfes from there (that sector is free for skiers/boarders!). Private taxis, rental cars & shuttles provide another option.

See our Travel to Innsbruck page for detailed information on getting around the area.
