Gitschberg

The winter sports area around the “Gitsch“, as the locals call the beautifully shaped mountain, lies at an ideal altitude of 1.400 to 2.500 meters above Meransen.

Directly on the outskirts of the town, two small drag lifts with a practice run each, offer the best start to an eventful week in the snow. In addition to a narrow forest run, the Gitschberg is characterised by broad, easy to view pistes, which leave everyone enough room for a free run.

 

Even in peak season there are very few waiting periods at the lifts. The ski terrain offers both experts and beginners plenty of piste fun. The ride on the four-seater chair lift ends directly underneath the peak cross where you can orient yourself quite easily in the beautiful mountain region, thanks to the “360°-Panorama platform.“ The panorama view of more than 500 mountain peaks, which are distributed throughout half of Southern Tyrol, the Dolomites, the Zillertal, Stubaier and Ötztal Alps, will surely remain unforgettable.

 

 

After completion of the new 8-seater cabin lift “Bergbahn“ in the middle of December 2003, there are now nine lifts and 21 kilometres of optimally prepared pistes available annually from the beginning of December until after Easter. The visits to cosy huts are also a part of the obligatory winter programme at the Gitschberg and with 5 quaint mountain pasture huts and two après ski restaurants/bars you can also train your après ski swing. All those who would like to enjoy skiing at night have the option of the floodlit piste at the Brunner-Lift in Meransen.

 

 

Those who wish to reach the sunny elevated plateaux of Meransen without an own car, can be carried out from Mühlbach in the cable lift. Another option is the “Snow taxi”: The free of charge transport picks up the guests from the surrounding villages and brings them directly to the valley station of the cabin lift.
