Travel to Hochötz and Kühtai on your next school ski trip and you’ll enjoy snow-sure, high-altitude skiing. No wonder these resorts in the famous Ötz valley are so popular with school ski groups! The ski season is pretty long here and generally runs from November to May. You may recognise Kühtai, one of Austria’s highest ski villages, thanks to its starring role in The Jump, Channel 4’s celebrity snowsports show. The facilities here are excellent for skiers and snowboarders alike. Perched high above the town of Ötz, Hochötz offers brilliant skiing for beginners and intermediates, and is just a short bus ride away from Kühtai.
Interested in this resort?
Our standard package includes six days’ skiing in Hochötz and Kühtai. This means you’ll have access to 85km of pistes! And you’ll love the combination of a very efficient lift system and uncrowded slopes, which make for a much more pleasant school ski trip. Hochötz offers a great base for beginners to find their feet, thanks to the brilliant nursery slopes. Intermediates will also have lots of fun here, with a great choice of reds and blues across the two resorts.
