The Kaunertal valley in the Otzal region of Austria, is a gem for the lovers of ski-mountaineering and freeride. The lifts are present only in one area in the upper valley, and can be partly utilized for long tours with big vertical.
Generally between january and march, we can decide to stay in the lower valley, at 1200 – 3000 m elevations, and to both eastern and western aspects as to choose the best snow conditions-
Later in the season we may move to the upper valley, beyond Lake Gepatch, till the road end at approximately 2100 m, for tours upto 3400-3500 m of elevation, also on glaciers.
The programme may be tuned to the wishes of the team, and include a mix of ski touring and freeride.
The possibility are so many that it is possible to find unbeaten tracks, especially in the zones out of the reach of the lifts.
We may also organize a freeride only or a ski touring only week, and customize the technical level according to the participants’ profile.
- Steep Skiing: for a team of technical skiers we can propose various itineraries with approach by lifts and/or skinning.
