Österreich Kärnten Skitouren Naturpark Dobratsch

Ski touring

Glide uphill and ski down

The attraction of ski touring: ascending a mountain by yourself away from the crowds and then skiing back down again off-piste. Discovering the best peaks and ridges in the Villach Region.

On with those skins! Ski up to the region’s best vantage points under your own steam. The sun slowly rises, conjuring light shadows and distinctive silhouettes onto the glittering white slopes. While climbing up the mountain, you can see the soft snow cover promises finest powder for the descent.


On tour. Where can you go ski touring in the Villach Region? On Gerlitzen Alpe, in the Dobratsch nature park, on Verditz, Mittagskogel and Dreiländereck. Step by step the rhythm of walking helps you to forget the world around you. Yet hardly a winter sport makes you feel so in touch with nature as ski touring. The snow crunches under your skis, while you gradually glide up the mountain. As you walk, the stillness of the wintry countryside is striking – far from the busy slopes.

For all beginners: play it safe. Qualified guides will be happy to accompany you, making sure you are safe in the wilds.
