Skitouring in the Montafon, Vorarlberg

Ski touring in the Montafon, Vorarlberg

Ascents with beautiful views and speedy descents through the powder snow

It was only a question of time before greater numbers of sports enthusiasts discovered touring in the Alps. This silent, athletic and challenging way of being on the go beyond the ski areas excites young and old alike. In the south of Vorarlberg, you’ll find the best conditions for this adventure: slopes of all exposures, forests, heights up to 3,000 metres, the Silvretta glacier and, most of all, snow right through the spring.

Sure, a ski tour is always a challenge - and should be well prepared for. However, when accompanied by a state-certified mountain and ski guide, the selected tours are also suitable for beginners. The feeling of happiness of having ascended a slope and then leaving your tracks in the untouched snow - this is an incredible visual experience.

Madrisa circuit

The legendary tour to Switzerland and back

The circuit around the Madrisa, the 2,826 metre high group of peaks in the Rätikon, is one of the highlights of the Montafon ski paradise.

The ski tour leads along smugglers’ trails into Switzerland and back after outstanding descents and a ride on the Rhaetian railway. Anybody who has done it, will be raving about it for a long time to come. This is no easy tour, however, which also gives it its special allure. In order to do it safely, we recommend being accompanied by a local, state-certified mountain and ski guide. And being well prepared.
