What do mountaineers do in the winter? They go ski touring! Leaving your tracks in the snow is a great feeling. Wherever your ski tour takes you, you’ll find a huge range of things to do in the Murau-Murtal holiday region.

Whether short and demanding, steep with real challenges, or easy but long. Whether it's a leisurely tour, one for beginners or one for real professionals: In the Murau-Murtal everyone will find the perfect conditions for their ski touring adventure. Whether you’re a beginner, taking it easy or an expert, you need to be well prepared for a ski tour: ski touring and avalanche awareness courses provide for the perfect preparation for ski tours.

The Tauern and Nockberge offer virtually unprecedented opportunities to test your limits, be it on the Preber (2,740m), the Greim (2,474m) or the Zirbitzkogel (2,396m).

Styrian Krakau and the ski touring areas of Hohentauern, which feature the Triebental and Pölstal valleys, entice visitors with both simple routes with short climbs and high Alpine tours with long descents.
