Active vacationing in the wintertime

Since the establishment of the Gaisjoch and Schilling 8-seat aerial tram, the Gitschberg Jochtal ski area – with guaranteed snow – has been the largest ski arena in the Eisack Valley. For families and active vacationers, the courses lead to the villages of Vals / Valles and Meransen.

The Gitschberg Jochtal ski area is located away from the hustle and bustle of mass ski tourism. In the wintertime, over 55 km of slopes with courses in all degrees of difficulty offers the right mixture for child and adult winter sport enthusiasts.

With the 360° panoramic viewing platform, the Gitschberg is a big attraction. Guests will be astounded by the sensational view of more than 500 summits and mountaintops in the vicinity.

In the village center, there are slopes for child vacationers as well as a ski kindergarten with a magic carpet.

Away from the slopes, the Gitschberg Jochtal ski area offers a lot of pristine landscape for worthwhile and unforgettable winter hikes, snowshoe hikes, and horse-drawn sleigh rides.

Families vacationing here in the winter can take advantage of the baby carriage-accessible winter hikes through the snow-covered alpine landscape.

Rustic alpine huts are to be found all along the slopes, where you can stop by and enjoy typical South Tyrolean cuisine and delicious refreshments.

The Gitschberg Jochtal ski area also offers a wide variety of additional outdoor sporting options:

- 16 modern lifts
- 2 certified ski schools
- 3 children's parks with all-day supervision
- 2 snowparks
- 1 kiting area
- 2 posted natural tobogganing courses
- 1 artificial ice start tobogganing run
- carriage rides

After an extended hike or a long day on the slopes, you can relax and unwind in the Alpine Pool adventure facility for just € 2.00.
