Tips from our local team
- The reds at the top of the mountain are wide and well-groomed, so they're do-able for competent beginners.
- The Mittelallalin restaurant is the world's highest revolving restaurant - perfect for a lunch stop.
Don’t be put off by the glacier - although high, the runs at the top aren’t actually as steep as the runs lower down the mountain – Red 18 is the perfect first red run for anyone looking to move up from blue runs. Once you’ve mastered it, or at least tried to, the glacial runs head up to the Mittelallalin restaurant. The world’s highest revolving restaurant is the perfect place for a well-deserved lunch.
