Discover skiing on a glacier

Ski holidays in glacier regions

Skiing on a glacier is possible across Europe. The advantages are obvious. You don't have to worry about the snow or worry about the weather; often you are skiing above the clouds. Glacier areas are the snowiest ski areas in the European Alps and usually accessible from October to the end of April. With new gondolas, such as the 3K K-onnection from Kaprun to Kitzsteinerhorn, which opened in 2019, the glacier ski areas are now also easily accessible and connected to lower slopes. So it is now even easier to discover fantastic snow-covered areas.
