Kaunertal Glacier - Fendels skiing area

The majestic Kaunertal Glacier and the winter mountain Fendels in the Kaunertal valley became one.

The Kaunertal Glacier is considered the “youngest glacier of Tyrol” and allied with the winter mountain Fendels in order to offer even more possibilities. The area is considered snow-sure, from October to May on the Kaunertal Glacier and from December to April in the Fendels skiing area. Furthermore here you’ll find family and children friendly prices.

The Kaunertal Glacier stands out with its wide glacier slopes. In this skiing area, the Snowpark Kaunertal with its Easy-, Medium- and Pro-Line is waiting for snowboarders and freeskiers. Also the events held in this place are known beyond borders, including the Kaunertal Opening and the Spring Classics. Night-time skiing and tobogganing, however, are offered in the Fendels skiing area. This manageable area is perfectly suited for families - here you’ll also find an adventure playground, the “BIBI Kinderland” and special children’s dishes.

What is new is the viewing platform “Drei-Länderblick” (view of three countries) at the Karlesjoch pass at 3,108 m a.s.l., providing a fantastic view on the Swiss, Italian and Austrian mountains. The Kaunertal valley is a barrier-free skiing area, awarded with the EDEN-Award. The “Tirol Snow Card” as well as the “Allgäu GlacierCard” are valid here.
