Glacier & skiing areas in Kaunertal

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 the Weißseejochbahn lift on the Kaunertal Glacier - winter sports fun up to 3,044 m above sea level.

     Glacier ski season until 20.05.2024 | Winterberg Fendels open until 01.04.2024!   

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! This makes barrier-free skiing in the Kaunertal very easy. 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.

The Kaunertal is still known among connoisseurs as an insider tip for winter sports enthusiasts. From the idyllic town of Feichten you can reach the Kaunertal Glacier. Glittering, white powder snow slopes invite both freeride lovers and ski tourers to make their turns in the snow.

A dose of action & adrenaline extra?

Black Ibex

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.

And that's not enough! Particularly brave ones rush down the Black Ibex slope. The steepest slope in Europe, with a gradient of over 87.85%. Steeper than the Streif in Kitzbühel. The adrenaline boils in your veins here!

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.
