Ski touring near Kitzbühel

The peace of the snow landscapes can't be experienced more intensively than during a ski  tour, away from the hustle and bustle on the ski pistes. On the Kitzbühel Alps you will find one of the Europe's most beautiful and versatile ski tour regions.

A lot of wonderful ski tours start in the valleys around Brixental in Tyrol. From here you can conquer various mountains. Your Elisabeth Activity Hotel is located in the middle of the Spertental, from where you can start your tour to Aschau.

Tours around Kitzbühel

The Spertental runs from Kirchberg through the idyllic mountain village Aschau, a tributary valley of Brixental. The most popular ski tours here are the one to the Brechhorn (2,037m) and to the Gerstinger Joch (2,035m). Even the Große Rettenstein has been conquered by skis, even though it is not your classic ski tour mountain and is very challenging.

There are also interesting tours from Brixen and Westendorf in Brixental.

Winter idyll

Untouched snow surfaces, where no one has left a trace, snow-covered alpine pastures and magic winter forests – during your ski tours you will experience the winter from a very special perspective. Step by step you glide up the mountain. A ski tour is truly perfect when the sun is shining and the snow cover is glistening.

Finally arrived at your destination you can enjoy the sea of summit with the Hohe Tauern (including Großglockner and Großvenediger), the Kitzbühel Horn and the Wilde Kaiser. Visit the hut host for a delicious snack before you prepare for the downhill run.

Tips and information

The best season for ski tours is spring, when you will find the popular firn snow, which has a special grip. Always stay on the sign-posted ascent and descent routes. Ask for our official ski tour map, and we will also gladly inform you at the Elisabeth Hotel reception.
