Skiing holidays at the Hotel Strasserwirt in St. Ulrich

The Pillerseetal ski area: Piste fun for skiers and snowboarders

The Pillerseetal ski area in the Kitzbühel Alps is very suitable for beginners, families with children, and leisure skiers. There are pistes of all levels of difficulty (blue, red, and black), guaranteeing ski days that are rich in variety. There are fantastic piste conditions from mid-December through to April in the Kitzbühel Alps, and Pillerseetal gets more snow than any other region in Tyrol.

Schneewinkel collaboration

Skiers and snowboarders seeking lots of diversity benefit from the Schneewinkel collaboration of the Pillersee lifts. A ski pass of 4 days or more covers all the other ski areas in the Kitzbühel Alps. This means that if you purchase a lift ticket of 4 days or more, you can ski in the ski areas of Waidring Steinplatte, Erpfendorf Lärchenhof, Reit im Winkl-Winklmoos, Kirchdorf and St. Johann in Tyrol at no extra cost./p>
