Ski touring in the Zillertal Arena

We not only want to inform ski tourers who ski down the pistes during the evening and night,  but also guests who remain longer up in the mountain huts and restaurants, of this explicit danger.  The ski slopes are groomed with the help of cable winches in ALL ski areas in the Zillertal Arena (Zell, Gerlos, Königsleiten, Hochkrimml).


Downhill run Zell am Ziller
The downhill run in Zell is out of bounds outside the operating hours of the ski lifts since piste groomers are constantly at work with cable winches. These pose a RISK OF FATAL INJURIES for ski tourers! Grooming the ski slopes is a complex and demanding procedure that requires the entire piste to be closed. There are no alternative routes. We urgently appeal to all ski tourers to take the dangers seriously and to abstain from using the pistes outside lift operating hours!


Ski tourers’ evening in Gerlosstein

Every Monday and Wednesday a lively, convivial evening in the Arbiskogel Hütte mountain hut in the Gerlosstein ski area awaits all ski touring enthusiasts!

Open until 11 pm. For group reservations call +43 (0)5282 2419

It is NOT PERMITTED to use the groomed pistes on ANY OTHER EVENING during the week. Snow groomers working on the pistes with cable winches create a LIFE-THREATENING HAZARD! The lift and piste operating companies (Bergbahnen) assume no liability whatsoever.
