A week of "firn" touring and skiing

End of season in Villgratental

  • Four guided ski or snowboarding tours in the Villgratental
  • Descents on firn in a unique natural and cultural landscape
  • Overnight stays in luxury huts including dinner and breakfast

When spring is close and the snow begins to retreat to higher locations, backcountry skiers and tourers can still be seen in the Villgraten valley. The often perfect early spring conditions allow them to do what they like doing best, sometimes into early May.The “firn week” in the Villgraten valley offers six guided tours to your personal dream ski destinations in the valley. Ski experiences in the remote nature of the Villgraten valley far away from the crowds, descents on the finest firn and some stories of the valley told by our guide will make this a unique week. (Un)fortunately (!?) we can’t guarantee descents on firn only, the last few winter seasons also offered some runs in deep powder.

We will spend the nights in the hamlet called Kalkstein at 1605 m a.s.l. in a lovingly renovated and modernly furnished farmhouse where we will also take our dinners. The breakfasts will have to be prepared by ourselves but organic milk from the farmer next door and fresh bread from the local baker will make this little chore into a pleasant one. This is the perfect week to end your ski season and to transition into the mountain biking or hiking season.
