Mountain Info

The Kaunertaler Gletscher is located at the foot of the mountain Weißseespitze (3535m) and provides 20 kilometers of trails. Leaving from Feichten, follow the curvy street to the parking lot that belongs to the Ochsenalm. Now you can either take one of the two chair lifts or you follow the street until you get to the glacier restaurant, at an altitude of 2750 meters.


Enjoy the luxury of choosing between many spacious glacier trails. The slopes at Falginjoch (No. 1, 2, 12 and 13) are considered to be ideal for beginners, use the railway Weißseefernerbahnen to get to these trails. Youngsters will enjoy the kids park close to the glacier restaurant with its conveyor lift. Here the little ones learn playfully to ski. Furthermore you will find a playground that will delight all children with swings, trampoline and a climbing wall. An other plus, to be easy on your household budget, the lift tickets for kids under 10 are free for the whole area.


The Nörderjoch lifts serve more blue runs (Nr. 7, 8, 11), but be careful, despite the fact that these are marked blue, some steep sections can be expected. There is also a great FIS- run. If you decide for the Karlesjochbahn, located on the right side of the glacier restaurant, it will bring you to the most challenging terrain at the Kaunertaler Gletscher, the only black run with a slope of 75%, also to an observation deck with a breathtaking view that you just can not miss while you are here. The name ´3-country view´ speaks for itself, you will enjoy a spectacular view over the Silvretta group, the Ortler in Italy and the Bermina group in Switzerland.


The Kaunertaler Gletscher is considered a pioneer for  Freestyle and did create the necessary infrastructure early. The snow park is close to the Nörderjoch I-lifts. Thanks to the drop of 2990 meters, the park invites well into the late spring. This park challenges skiers of every level and ability and features 20 different elements including a start funbox kicker, a flat-down combo picnic and gun pipe 6M. A highlight every year are the ´Spring Classics´, several weeks program of barbecues, contests and countless events.


The Kaunertaler Gletscher has a great reputation amongst Freeriders and is a real insiders´ tip. Because of its altitude you always have enough powdery snow and you will find numerous untracked trails. A total of 30 kilometers untouched slopes expects you and offers different variations. As part of the project ´Check your Line´, there are many info-boards displaying information of dangers that this sport keeps and provide important notes on proper behavior in the back country. Therefore it has the best conditions for Freeride beginners.

On Mountain Dining

Two mountain restaurants cater to your appetite at the Kaunertaler Gletscher. The glacier restaurant ´Weißsee´ is situated in the heart of the area. Choose from the self-service cafeteria between Tyrol specialties and international meals. ´Weißsee´ gives guests a large sun deck where they can wind down their day and recharge their battery. You will find the ´Ochsenalm´  at the beginning of the area. It became a new outfit in the season of 2013/ 14 and offers a menu that is just perfect for a little snack in between and also provides a fantastic and sunny terrace.

Must-ski Runs

The black run ´Karlesjoch 3´ represents a real challenge and gets the adrenaline in every skier going.



An additional winter activity is sledding, the tobbogan runs in Fendels (Length: 4,5 km) and Feichten (Length: 2 km) guarantee racy rides on the tobbogan run.All those prefering sauna and steam baths to loosen their muscles, look for the ´Kaunertaler Center´ in Fechten, it offers a wellness area and a great indoor pool.

Après Ski

The bar ´Weißsee´ on the sun deck of the glacier restaurant ensures a fantastic apres ski atmosphere. Just before Feichten invites a glacier cave to enjoy the evening after a successful ski day. The party continuous throughout the night at the ´Pfiff Alm´ and the ´Zappa Dello´ in Feichten.

Fine Dining

If you love to get spoiled with Tyrol and game specialties the 'Tiroler Stube' at the Hotel 'Gletscherhof' in Feichten is the right address for you. The Hotel 'Feichtnerhof' also serves local dishes- every night the guests can choose between various menu options.
