News – 2016/17

The slow, old Breitspitzbahn double chairlift at the edge of the local Silvapark ski area will be replaced by a 10-seater gondola. This will start a lot lower down near the lake, giving longer runs, including a new 3km piste.

Summary

Sunnier and cheaper than Ischgl, Galtür is a good base for families and mixed-ability groups looking for a quiet time in a scenic location – but with the extensive terrain and jolly aprés-ski of its bigger neighbour a short bus ride away. The village has a pleasant central area, pretty church, a few hotels and restaurants that spread out along the road towards Wirl, at the foot of the slopes. The local Silvapark slopes are limited in extent and can be bleak; but they are quite varied and snow-sure and include a fine nursery area.
