On the slopes

We are delighted that this perfect gem of a resort has become a perennial favourite for our school ski trip groups. The sunny and snow-sure Kühtai valley is the highest ski resort in Austria but a well-kept secret far from the madding ski crowds! Beginners are well-catered for in Gries itself, while the 2020 metre-high Kühtai is a short drive away.

Beginners are well-served with a magic carpet on the nursery slope and the new KidsPark especially designed for all ages to practise jumps and slides in a safe environment. The modern lift system means you can access the wide-ranging 40 km of slopes with minimal waiting times, while real explorers can now also ski in Hochoetz. A free skibus departs from Kühtai to Ochsengarten every 30 minutes.


Innsbruck, the capitol of Tyrol and twice host of the winter Olympics, is a short coach ride away and great for evening activities, including the indoor Olympic centre and ice hockey stadium. Other evening entertainments arranged especially for students on school ski trips include Tyrolean evenings (with music and traditional food), snow shoe and torch-lit hiking, night skiing and a visit to a reindeer farm!
