Hochzeiger ski resort in the Pitztal Valley

Ski resort open

Open lifts 4/9

Any resort where World Cup star Benni Raich trained for his races is guaranteed to have plenty of challenging slopes – and that is the case in the Hochzeiger resort. But this ski area in the Pitztal Valley also has plenty more to offer, including many easy blue pistes for beginners and children learning to ski.

Located at the entrance to the Pitztal Valley, the family-friendly Hochzeiger resort extends across the sunny south-west facing slopes above the village of Jerzens. The network of pistes caters for all abilities, from tentative beginners to confident experts, and extend from 1,450 metres all the way up to 2,450 metres. This high altitude means that skiers and snowboarders excellent snow from early December until the middle of April.

The most famous piste in the resort is black run number 3, which is named after the multiple World Cup winner and local lad Benni Raich. Raich trained here throughout his highly successful career and practised many of his tight slalom turns on this devilishly steep piste with gradients of up to 80%. Families and beginners, on the other hand, will enjoy the 300-metre-long snowpark where both children and experienced skiers can test their skills and nerve on the jumps and obstacles. The resort offers very attractive family discounts on ski passes.
