ALTERNATIVE TO THE SKI RUNS
Ski tours are enjoying ever greater popularity. There are no excessively high summits and difficult ski runs; however, there are wonderful Alpine valleys, high plateaus and mountains which give you an appetite for the peace and quiet of the East Tirol mountainscape. Top: The Villgraten Valley. It gets a bit louder at the traditional toboggan rides, since there are lots of twisty bits in Hochpustertal.
