Visitor Reviews of Pitztal Glacier

chris wright from United Kingdom writes:

First, I must say that this place is a gem of a find! It's all locals here. Some from Germany but hardly any from the UK. Which is great, not because I don't want to see my fellow countryman, it's just a nice indication that it isn't bombarded by tourists. In the area of Pitztal you have Pitztal glacier. Right next door you have Rifflsee and a couple of minutes down the valley you have Hochziger. You can get a lift pass for all three for a week at around 170 Euro's.
First, the glacier is fantastic. The well looked after runs are not the greatest if you are a beginner but for intermediate and expert there's lots to keep you going. Not stacks of off-piste but they are working on a run from the top to the base station. This is off-piste at the mo and there are fantastic views on the way down. The summit at the glacier is over 3000 meters so take some o2! (or stop smoking.)
Right next door is Rifflsee. Again, not the widest of runs but you can really get some great speed up here. A little better for the beginner here and a little more off-piste. There is a really nice cruisey blue run from the top to the base station car park. Good fun and if you want to come off early it brings you to Pitztal glacier base station.
Now, Hochziger. This place is fantastic. Over 45k of runs. Loads and loads of off-piste. Great for everyone and one mammoth run from the top to the base. You know you are alive when you get to the bottom and waiting for you is beer! I would really recommend a trip here. You can fly cheaply from the UK to Salzburg. Innsbrook is closer but served by BA so not the cheapest. I stayed with a family. It was really cheap and very clean with everything you want and the view every morning was fantastic. Hausbritfuss in St Leonard is where they also run a ski racing camp. Check it out and have a ball.
