Expert's Opinion

"The beautiful Pitztal Valley is one of Europe’s highest and most snow sure ski areas, and is home to the tallest mountain in the Tyrol. The ‘Der Wildspitze’ and the Pitztal Glacier, with an altitude of 3,440m, ensure absolute snow guarantee from the end of September to the middle of May." - Jessica Delaney

The Village

Most of Pitztal sits within a nature reserve, offering some of the most spectacular scenery in Austria. With high, snow sure skiing on the glacier and a traditional Austrian village, this is a charming resort for families looking for a dual season Alpine retreat. Pitztal sits in a long valley that is less well known than the nearby Otztal, where Solden and Obergurgl are located.

Boasting the highest mountain in the Tyrol in the form of ‘Der Wildspitze’, Pitztal glacier means this resort is one of the most snow sure in Austria. While the larger and more famous resorts of Solden and Obergurgl both offer high skiing and lively resorts, Pitztal is more low key. It is a real Austrian village, with uncrowded slopes and a cute, cosy atmosphere.

As one of the more off-the-beaten-track resorts in the Alps, Pitztal offers a huge amount of cross country and ski touring. It’s within an hour and 20 minutes of Innsbruck airport, so it’s an excellent weekendable destination. Munich, Salzburg and Zurich are all within three hours of the resort, offering reasonable alternative transfer options.

The Skiing

With the highest mountain in the Tyrol on the doorstep, Pitztal has some of the most snow sure skiing in Austria. There are three main ski areas accessible from the village, offering high slopes and long, sloping runs that keep good snow cover from the end of september all the way through to may each year.

Whilst the pistes aren’t the most extensive, local guides will take skiers off piste, where there is huge amounts of glacier skiing. There is a terrain park for keen freestylers, while the primarily blue and red pistes are perfect for the more relaxed skier. It was recently announced that there are plans to link the slopes of Pitztal with Solden, which saw its profile soar due to its appearance in James Bond: Spectre.

As the home to some of the highest skiing in Europe, Pitztal is already popular amongst ski tourers. Its also well equipped for cross country skiers, and has a 6km toboggan run that families can enjoy at the end of a day on the slopes.

Properties

There is almost nothing on the market in Pitztal, new or old, so it's rare to be able to invest in the resort. The high snow sure slopes make it a great place to buy a ski home, especially if you intend to rent it out. There are a number of ski in, ski out apartments available right now, complete with hotel services.

Although the rental obligation won't attract those looking for a second home, buyers looking for an investment or an apartment for personal use that they can rent out during times when they aren't using it will find properties here really suit their needs.
