Think winter is boring? Think again! From skiing, snowboarding and cross-country skiing to tobogganing, walking, snowshoe hiking, ice climbing and ice skating there is so much to see and do in Tirol during the cold months of the year. And anyone who thinks snow is just cold, white and wet, should think again too. There are almost too many different types of the white stuff to mention: new snow, old snow, powder snow, spring snow, frozen snow, crusty snow, slush…
Besides the many outdoor activities and fine lexical details, Tirol’s winter landscapes are one thing: majestic. There can be few better feelings than gliding through a snowy forest on a pair of cross-country skis, exploring the region on snowshoes or dragging a wooden toboggan up to one of the region’s many traditional huts before whizzing back down with the wind in your hair. Wherever you go and whatever you see, the clear mountain air and dazzling ice crystals are your constant companion as you explore the heart of the Alps in winter. Come with us on a journey through Tirol’s most beautiful winter landscapes.
