Schnalstaler Gletscherbahnen

At the very end of Val Senales-Schnalstal, home of Ötzi the Iceman, at 3.200m a.s.l. you can find the only skiing area on a glacier in the whole territory of South Tyrol. Summer or winter, it does not matter, the Schnalstaler Gletscherbahn carries active excursionists and skiers up into the high altitude alpine landscape and never fails to impress with its 360° view of the Ortles up to the Ötztaler Alps.

In winter, besides the challenging slopes, a snow park and a sleigh piste, numerous refuges invite you to spend a little time tasting their gourmet produce on their beautiful sun terraces. The Caves of the glacier and the place where Ötzi, the Iceman, was found, are also easily reachable from the mountain cable car station. The surrounding 3.000m high mountains are a real El Dorado for Alpine skiers and free riders, during the summer months the mountain peaks turn into challenging summit destinations.

The Schnalstaler Gletscherbahn was built in 1975 by pioneer Leo Gurschler. He created the foundations of what would quickly become the tourism economy of the Val Senales-Schnalstal. Even today, the valley, still with a strong farming identity, preserves its centuries old character of an alpine retreat with an ancient culture and tradition and a great choice of activities for families and sportsmen.
