WINTER VACATION IN THE ÖTZTAL VALLEY
Gries – a place at the pulse of nature
Breathe freely and relax
Gries also captivates in winter with its peace, tranquility and romance. If you are looking for a winter vacation without hustle and bustle, noise and through traffic, then you are right with us in Gries. The fascinating valley landscape around Längenfeld can be experienced in various ways – with atmospheric winter carriage rides, hikes through deeply snow-covered forests and meadows – a vacation with us in Längenfeld offers you all of this!
Recharge your batteries on the cross-country ski trail
When it comes to winter sports, Längenfeld is particularly enthusiastic about cross-country skiers. At 1200 meters above sea level, a true paradise with 60 kilometers of well-groomed cross-country trails (awarded the Tyrolean Cross-country Trail Seal of Quality!) awaits you! Especially the vastness of the valley basin allows the creation of generous loops, which have all degrees of difficulty.
A special highlight is the biathlon facility at the night trail in Oberried. Here you can experience how the athletes feel in competition and prove your marksmanship yourself. Every Thursday from 18:00 to 20:00.
Family vacation in Tyrol
A heart for families
A T-bar lift offers every skier the opportunity to get back the feeling of skiing before heading to the big ski resorts. Personal ambience and no standing time comes first for real Gries fans. The facility is especially suitable for children and beginners who want to learn skiing in a relaxed atmosphere and without stress. A separate children’s ski school teaches young guests their first turns and, with all-day supervision, offers parents the opportunity to enjoy the winter to the fullest themselves.
Piste magic in the Ötztal
Längenfeld, located in the golden center of the Ötztal, is the ideal starting point for wonderful winter sports days in the ski regions of the rear Ötztal. Both Sölden and Obergurgl are practically next door as neighboring resorts. As a special service, a free ski bus shuttle service takes you 3 times a day directly from Gries to the skiing fun and back or every 10 minutes from Längenfeld to Sölden to the slope magic.
