Glaciers & ski areas in the Kaunertal

Kaunertal Glacier & Winter Mountain Fendels

Two Tyrolean destinations for an unforgettable winter

Skiing from October to June? Tyrol's youngest glacier makes it possible! In the Kaunertal, you have not just one, but two ski areas to enjoy for double the fun on the slopes.

Experience the Kaunertal Glacier and Fendels with just one ski pass. Guaranteed to get the most out of your winter holiday! New since December 2019: the Falginjoch lift on the Kaunertal Glacier - winter sports fun up to 3,113 m above sea level.

Skiing on the Kaunertal Glacier

In the Kaunertal, you are always just one step away from a glacial paradise. The journey on the the Kaunertal Glacier Road is an experience in itself! When you finally have the skis under your feet, you'll love the wide-open slopes on the glacier. As a landmark of the Tyrolean Valley, the glaciated Weißseespitze (3,535 m) always keeps a watchful eye over the winter athletes.

New since 7th December 2019: the Falginjochbahn 3,113 m - Austria's first "100er Funifor" cable car on the Kaunertal Glacier. The new railway runs along the former tow-track lanes of the Weissseeferner Lifts I + II. The aging Weissseeferner ski lifts were dismantled at the end of the ski season 2018/19 so that they can now be replaced by a railway model unique in Austria. The train starts right next to the car park at the glacier restaurant at 2,750 m and ends at the Falginjoch at 3,113 m.

A dose of action & adrenaline extra?

Not only ski beginners will find perfect conditions on the Kaunertal Glacier, but also "piste experts & hip daredevils". With the longest descent from the Karlesjoch mountain station with over 1,100 vertical meters to the valley station Ochsenalm. This also requires well-trained skiers and snowboarders an extra dose of breath. A special highlight along the route: the Steinbockwand with over 75% gradient. Before, all winter athletes pass the 175 long ski tunnel.

The family ski area at Fendels

One ski resort not enough for you? The small but beautiful Fendels is right next door and is extremely popular with families. Manageable size, guaranteed snow, and friendly: these are the attributes that winter tourists value most. The location at the entrance of the Kaunertal and with direct access to the idyllic mountain village Fendels clinches the deal.

Fendels with highlights for skiers of all ages

Seven lifts take you up to 2,000 meters above sea level in this charming Tyrolean ski area. The youngsters, meanwhile, are well looked after in Bibiland, letting mum and dad relax and take their turns heading downhill. In addition, you and your loved ones can expect:

  • 11 km of slopes of different difficulty levels
  • the cosy Sattelklause mountain restaurant
  • the new Fendels Kids Park with park and cross elements

Small tip with great charm: the village lift in Feichten

Looking for something special? The Easpenhang offers a small ski area with a very special flair. The Feichten village lift is equally popular with slope newbies and old hands. Every Tuesday evening, the "Show On Snow" takes place, when the ski pros show what they can do. In addition, you can embark on a journey into the past and learn more about the history of skiing in the Kaunertal.
