Winter Ski Dreams & Sunshine Galore
A ski region with a great heart! Perfect in size, cozy atmosphere plus top modern amenities – that's what the Ski Region Hochoetz in the lower Ötztal Valley stands for! Lift lines are a thing of the past, crowded ski slopes are literally unknown.
Real ski aficionados can choose from a wide range of ski slopes for all skill levels and with highly reliable snow conditions. Also expert skiers will have endless fun at the new, top modern Wetterkreuzbahn or in the free skiing terrain. The scenic "Zugspitzblick" vantage platform makes for a great rest stop during the day.
Hochoetz is a truly unique paradise for families and children. Weekly held theater shows and child activities, among them a wildlife safari, promise endless fun for young skiers. Since the 2013/14 winter season WIDI, the lovely mascot for families in the Ötztal, accompanies the kids to the slopes by providing them with useful tips and expert advice.
Skiing makes hungry, as we know! A number of quaint mountain huts and inns await you - just perfect for enjoying a hearty snack or meal, and soaking up the winter sun. Don't miss out on sampling typical Tirolean delights like cheese dumplings or scrambled pancake.
Ski Region Hochoetz-Kühtai – "Twice as much fun"

Families come first! Happy Family Weeks
The Happy Family Weeks* in Hochoetz are synonymous with fun galore for the youngest skiers. With a minimum stay of 7+ nights in the resorts of Haiming-Ochsengarten, Sautens or Oetz all kids receive a free ski pass plus a free** kid's ski course or free** child supervision at the local ski kindergarten.
"We entirely focus on family holidays" is the ultimate slogan of Hochoetz! Among the undisputed highlights ranks the weekly theater for children promising fun-packed hours for the little ones!
While the youngest skiers make their first experiences in the snow at one of the button ski lifts or the moving carpet, older kids head for the snow park - following the tracks of wild animals hidden along the ski run. WIDI, the funny mascot for families in the Ötztal, accompanies them all day long. The most important skiing rules and the right behavior are displayed on several information boards spread all over the area!
The unrivaled attraction of a skiing week is the challenging ski race for children. Here the little skiers can show their skills, and how they improved them during the Happy Family Weeks.
