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!

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.

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
  • a large area for children and beginners
  • night skiing and sledging from December to March


Practical:you can reach Fendels quite easily on foot from the mountain village of the same name. Of course, there is also a free ski bus from the Kaunertal to Fendels. If you want to complete your equipment, visit one of the ski and toboggan rentals in the Kaunertal.

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.

Glacier or family ski area? In the Kaunertal, you don't have to choose. You can do both! One ski pass is your ticket to two special Tyrolean ski destinations: the Kaunertal Glacier and Fendels. And that's still not all: in addition, the ski pass is also valid for the village lift in Feichten.

Don't feel like you've got your legs on skis yet? No problem! The well-trained instructors at the valley's ski schools will get you ready for the slopes in no time. As you can see, there's nothing to stop you from having winter fun in the Kaunertal. Book the best accommodation now! Be sure to check out the weather and snow conditions in the Tyrol!

"Der nackte Kaiser Max"

Passend zum Jubiläumsjahr des 500. Todestages Kaiser Maximilian I. widmen sich die Schauspiele Kauns dieser historischen Figur, allerdings auf eine ganz andere Art und Weise, als man es vermuten würde. Wie der Titel schon erahnen lässt, wird kein pompöses Volksschauspiel zu sehen sein, sondern vielmehr ein humorvolles Stück mit Tiefgang, das den Kaiser Max all seines Prunkes und Scheins entledigt und den Menschen dahinter zum Vorschein bringt.
