Here are 10 challenges you have to conquer this winter if you want to call yourself a true Tirolean skier.
1.- Skiing at over 3,000 meters
A high alpine challenge that every "true" Tirolean skier must have experienced is to make some turns on one of Tirol's 5 glaciers.
Tirol's glaciers ski resorts offer snowsure slopes throughout the season and well into spring.
2.-Coffee and cake in Tirol's highest café
Speaking of altitude: Café 3.440 on the Pitztal Glacier is the highest coffee house in Austria and offers its visitors a unique view. Enjoying a cup of coffee while skiing here may not be a challenge, but it is definitely a wonderful experience.
3.- First Tracks on the Slopes with Early Bird Skiing
Rise and shine and off to the slopes! While most people are still fast asleep, true skiers are up with the lark and ready to carve first tracks on the freshly prepared pistes as the sun appears on the horizon. The resort of Fieberbrunn in the Skicircus Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn is one of several places offering early-bird skiing.
