Ski Touring in the Alps

A different way to explore the Austrian alps

Every winter, the Grossarl Valley transforms into a ski touring paradise: slopes with deep powder snow between 2,000 and nearly 2,900 metres above sea level (Keeskogel), incredible views and the feeling of pure freedom await you when you go back country skiing and ski touring in the Alps.

Ski touring involves heading up the mountain without the help of cable cars or ski lifts. Hike uphill with your skis and soak up the views of the valley and surrounding mountains from the top. Take in the incredible feeling of achieving something with your own strength and power. Ski touring fans are truly the heroes of the mountains! One of the most popular ski touring spots is located right here in Salzburger Land — the Grossarl Valley. The Nesslerhof at the foot of the Kreuzkogel mountain is the perfect ski accommodation for visitors who want to conquer the mountains whilst ski touring or back country skiing in Grossarl.

Please note: ski touring requires the proper equipment. You can hire alpine skis and ski skins from sports shops near our hotel and spa in Grossarl.

a one-of-a-kind experience

Get away from the hubbub of the ski resorts — all you will hear is the the soft crunch of snow under your skis.
