Ice skating is as much a part of winter as snow and ice. Outdoor ice skating is even more thrilling than indoors! Alpine curling has a long history in Tyrol and is very popular in this area. Every winter the generations gather out on Tyrol’s icy lakes, lanes and ponds to aim their curling stones at a puck-like wooden target.
In See there are two 24-metre alpine curling lanes at a width of two to three metres. Fun and thrills for the whole family are guaranteed.
The bathing lake is open from Wednesday to Sunday from 5pm until 10pm whenever the weather permits.

Ice inspectors test the thickness and strength of the ice in See every day to ensure skating fun out on the lake is also safe.
This is a pleasurable activity for people of all ages, and is ideal for non-skiers. Snow shoe trekking is a simple sport and does not require tons of equipment or lots of preparation time. It gives non-skiers a great opportunity to explore the picturesque winter terrain in and around Galtür.
Tread the remotest paths. Soak up the atmospheric silence and the beauty of forests veiled in freshly-fallen snow, and the picturesque mood of the Silvretta mountains. Snow shoes enable guests to reach some truly impressive vantage points. Important: It is essential to have accurate, up-to-the-minute information about the weather situation and danger of avalanches!
Fat bikes have been around since 2010 and are similar to conventional mountain bikes. However, they feature extra-broad tyres in a width range of 4.0 – 4.8 inches and a diameter of 30 inches, making them perfectly suited for navigating uneven terrain and surfaces such as sand and snow. Optimum grip is achieved by releasing some of the air pressure in the tyres.
Heinz is a highly experienced guide and provides fat bike riders with all the most important tips and tricks before your tour commences. Once every rider is clear about what to be aware of when descending in snowy conditions, it’s time to set off. Whatever your age or skill level, you’re guaranteed the ultimate adrenaline rush.
Fasten your skis and enjoy the snow plough ride up the Zeinisjoch to the Kops dam at just over 1800 metres above sea level. A colourful and varied descent through the forest brings skiers to the Vorarlberg Montafon region and the village of Partenen. The Vermuntbahn continues the journey up to 1739 metres above sea level. One of the highlights of the safari is the tunnel taxi, taking guests through a stunning mine shaft in the mountain and up to the Bielerhöhe pass. At the summit visitors enjoy the impressive view of the Silvretta chain and its several 3000-metre peaks! The tour returns home to Galtür via the beautiful Vermuntal valley.
