Altitude: 1507-2300 Meters

Hochoetz in short

  • Perfect for beginners
  • Stunning views
  • Access to other ski areas

Oetz is such a pretty little place that the expression ”small is beautiful" fits it just perfectly. This doesn't only apply to the ski resort itself - the ski area is the same. Apart from one slope requiring some experience, most of the runs are medium to easy, making this just paradise for children or beginners. From Oetz, ski areas such as Ötztal are easily accessible, offering somewhat more prestigious and more challenging skiing from a purely technical point of view.

The Hochoetz ski area at 2200m is reached by using the new 8-seater gondola lift in Oetz or the 4-seater gondola lift in Ochsengarten. With 40km of slopes in this ski area, this is a great place for beginner and intermediate skiers and snowboarders. There are some stunning views and a beautiful frozen lake to appreciate when you want to take a break. There are 10km of cross-country skiing trails that wind their way through the ski resort.

Innsbruck is a true winter sports paradise. The picturesque Tyrolean capital is nestled right in the centre of dozens of ski areas and seems to be tailor-made for a winter holiday. With nonstop flights on EasyJet from London and Bristol and plenty of shuttle buses once you arrive in Innsbruck, it’s a perfectly doable option for a week of skiing or snowboarding. Once in Austria you can choose to stay in Innsbruck itself or exploring a bit further along the winding valleys. Whatever you choos... More ›
