in the mountains

In the valley or up the mountains, it is definitely worth exploring the fantastic countryside away from the slopes. Tobogganing, off-piste cross-country skiing, snowshoeing or winter hiking – take your pick.

Ski touring & snowshoeing

The new craze in the Alps is ski touring. Special skis with skins for a good grip uphill and special ski boots: that’s all you need, and you’re perfectly equipped for ski touring on your winter holiday in Pinzgau. Explore the Salzburg and Tirol mountains almost like you would in summer – except you’re on skis. Scale a 3,000 m-plus peak in the Hohe Tauern or take it easier on a hut-to-hut tour – the choice is yours. Ski touring is strenuous, but definitely worth the effort (and a try). Snowshoeing is another way to enjoy the untouched winter landscape. Discover forests blanketed in white and animal tracks that disappear into the snow.
