This is nothing new to passionate Alpine mountaineers because the ski tour offer which awaits in the Ötztal Alps is simple and legendary. Mountain lodge evenings bring people together as tales of the Haute Route in the Eastern Alps circulate. The Finailspitze, Wildspitze, Venter Runde, all of the names conjure up memories, experiences or a sense of anticipation. The nature off-piste is untouched and so legendarily beautiful that even hardened winter sports fans can hear their hearts beating when they see it. The clicking of a camera interrupts the magic for a moment as the sun rises above the mountaintops and the first group set off on their descent.
But as always: safety first! The best way is to be accompanied by a mountain guide! Glacier crossings are only possible using a rope and in a group. Before setting off on any tour, consult the latest avalanche report, let the Welcome Desk know your provisional return time and take an avalanche transceiver device with you.
