The Silvapark Galtür in the Paznauntal Valley is a top winter destination for snowboarders, freestyle skiers, freeriders, and cross-country skiing enthusiasts. Children and teenagers will also find plenty to keep them entertained.
Surrounded by the majestic peaks of the Silvretta Mountains, many of which are over 3,000m high, the Silvapark Galtür is a snowsure resort deep in the Paznauntal Valley. Though it may be smaller than the neighbouring Silvretta Arena, it still has plenty to offer both families and freestylers. Some of the slopes cross over into the neighbouring province of Vorarlberg.
The Silvapark is divided into five sectors and at least twelve stations. The "Zwergerlwelt" and the "Abenteuerland" is great for children learning to ski, while teenagers can work on their tricks in the "Actionpark" and pick up a few tips from the pros. Most of the runs in the resort are rated red (intermediate). The piste network ranges from 1,600m all the way up to 2,300m. In the "High" and "Nordic" sectors there are trails for cross-country skiers as well as ski touring routes and snowshoe hiking areas.
Several huts and après-ski bars serve traditional Tirolean food and often get the party started even before the lifts have closed. Once a week there is night skiing on the floodlit pistes. One other highlight definitely worth trying is the world's first ski safari in a piste-grooming machine – the chance to explore the resort in one of the powerful machines which prepare the slopes for skiers.
