Up the mountain under your own steam

The silence of the mountains, broken only by the crunch of snow under your skis, creates an atmosphere of contemplation and tranquillity. Immerse yourself in the untouched beauty of nature away from the pistes and enjoy the wonderful views of the Kitzbühel Alps as well as a deep sense of satisfaction and freedom. The Wildschönau region offers you a wide variety of tours between 2.7 and 7 km in length, providing the perfect opportunity for unforgettable excursions into the winter landscape. Make your own tracks on the Breiteggern, the Großer Beil and the Feldalphorn and reach summits of up to 2300 meters. The tours first take you uphill, followed by a descent into the valley as a reward for your efforts. The feeling of gliding down the slopes into the valley on skis after conquering the ascent and knowing that you have done it under your own steam is simply unique.

During your ski tour, discover the numerous huts scattered along the ascent routes. They not only offer a place to rest and warm up, but also the opportunity to enjoy the local hospitality and culinary specialties.
