head to the glacier in november

Start the season early at over 3000m

The Tiefenbachgletscher glacier is characterised by wide and gentle pistes. Those looking for more of a challenge should head to the nearby Rettenbachgletscher glacier.

Located at 3250m altitude, the Rettenbachgletscher glacier lies between three mountains known as the "Big 3" (Gaislachkogel, Tiefenbachkogel and Schwarze Schneid). The glacier tongue stretches all the way down to 2675m at its lowest point.

Are you keen to hit the slopes as early as possible? Then get in touch today an send us a non-binding enquiry. We look forward to hearing from you.
