in the Oetztal
Away from the slopes with no lift support and in harmony with nature. On the summits of Obergurgl/Hochgurgl, Gries, Niederthai and Vent, the baccountry skiing enthusiast finds paradise. Especially Vent and Gries are ideal starting points for innumerable summit quests. The ski tour in Vent is among the most popular "Hautes Routes" in the Eastern Alps.
Obviously, it's absolutely necessary to take precautions when back country skiing. If the avalanche risk is high, it's impossible to venture into the high alpine environment. Safety first! Always consult avalanche and weather reports.
