Best Galtuer Snowboarding

The 44th most popular snowboarding destination in Austria.

  Silvretta Ski Arena, Tirol, Austria


  January 23, 2018

Southwest of Innsbruck and Landeck, the Galtür ski area has 40km of pistes served by 8 lifts spread across the conical peak of Ballunspitze. With its shape and lift placement, you will find that you tend to do laps off of a specific lift line before traversing to a different lift. The ski area is well known for its five ungroomed, but marked, ski routes. These ski routes include Ballunspitze, Zeinisroute, Kopser Jochl, Siggi's Freerideroute, and the skiers-right line on Kipsselifte. Keep in mind that some runs and all the ski routes need at least a 2m snow base before they open up.

The Galtuer-Wirl ski area is part of the Silvretta Ski Arena. The Silvretta Ski Arena has a ski pass that allows snowboarding at Galtuer-Wirl, Ischgl, Samnaun, Kappl and See. Keep in mind that the default Galtur-Wirl ski pass does not work at other Silvretta ski areas, so make sure to ask first.

When planning a snowboard trip to Galtur-Wirl ski area, keep in mind that the base area lifts are actually in the small village of Wirl, not in Galtur where most hotels are located. There is a free ski bus from Galture up to Wirl.

To reach the snowboarding at Galtür-Wirl from Innsbruck or Zurich, take the train to the Landeck station. There is an hourly Post-bus from the Landeck train staion to Galtür and Wirl.

Overall, Galtuer is the 44th most popular snowboard & freeride destination of all 68 snowboarding resorts in Austria. Several of the better snowboarding resorts are nearby Galtuer including Ischgl, Samnaun, See Bergbahnen and Kappl.
