Ski mountaineering in Tyrol, Austria

02.12.2008 by Planetmountain

Ski mountaineering in Austria's Tyrol, one of the largest ski touring areas in Europe.

Innsbruck and the Brennero Italian border are separated by 36 kilometers which can be covered in little under 30 minutes. This rapid motorway journey crosses an seemingly small area, but as soon as you turn off the Europa Bridge the region immediately presents itself as a complex labyrinth of valleys and mountains.

This peculiarity renders the Tyrol one of the largest ski mountaineering areas in Europe. And the mountains themselves add the rest: the mid and low altitude slopes are never too steep and ideal for winter outings, while the grandiose high altitude faces are perfect for spring skiing trips. In short, a true godsend for ski touring!
