Pitztal is the collective name for the villages in Pitztal - Arzl, Pitztal - Jerzens, Pitztal - St. Leonhard Pitztal - Wenns. These villages in the elongated Valley are some distance apart. At the beginning of the valley Jerzens has access to a sunny area located on the Hochzeiger. For both beginners and advanced this area offers opportunities.
Sankt Leonhard is located deep in the Pitztal and consists of several villages. Sankt Leonhard is an option for people who want to make the most of the two ski areas in Pitztal namely the Hochzeiger located at the end of the valley and the Pitztal Glacier. Early in the season, there are always excellent conditions here which is not surprising when you realise that the slopes reach up to 3440 meters!

Besides Hochzeiger and the Pitztal Glacier, Pitztal also has a third ski resort. The ski area of Rifflsee is near the glacier at the end of the valley and offers 20 kilometers of slopes and from here many people prefer to opt for the glacier skiing. The glacier train takes you to an altitude of 2840 meters where 68 kilometers of slopes are waiting to be explored. Hochzeiger is a family resort where every type of skier can enjoy a great ski holiday.
Both the ski areas of Hochzeiger and the Pitztal Glacier have a fun park. On the glacier you will find the park when you take the Mittelbergbahn and then descent 36. In three different areas, both pros and rookies can work on their skills. The park on the Hochzeiger includes kickers, a rainbowbox and various rails.
Cross-country skiers can access, via the hamlet of Wiese at 1182 meters, the Pitztalloipe cross-country trail that runs through the entire valley. This 21 kilometer trail is prepared daily and runs through the unspoiled nature of the Pitztal. Every village here also has its own (short) tracks. Anyone who has not had enough can also attack the high altitude trails of the glacier and Rifflsee area.
When the Pitztal is buried under a thick layer of snow, you can still enjoy walks here. The trails are prepared daily so you do not have to trudge through thick snow - you can simply enjoy the tranquility and unspoilt nature during a walk through the Pitztal.
