Skiing in Pitztal
The Pitztal valley is, remarkably, not well known on the British market. Located just 90km from Innsbruck airport it is a beautiful valley in the Austrian Tyrol.
Pitztal is an excellent destination for early season skiing as the glacier means that the winter ski season starts in September and runs through to May.
A range of ski areas reside down this valley alongside the 7 villages with Mandarfen being a key base for the Pitztaler Gletscher and the Rifflesee ski area and Jerzens being the village with the Hochzeiger ski area.
The closest airport is Innsbruck although out of the main winter season there are not many flights so you would need to fly to either Munich or Zurich. It is of course also possible to drive to resort - approximately 10 hours drive from Calais.
