Galtur is a charming peaceful traditional village at the head of the valley near Ischgl. Sunnier, cheaper and much quieter than it's larger neighbor, Galtür matches the image you have of a traditional Austrian village. It serves as a good base for a quiet family holiday or mixed-ability groups - and the free buses to Ischgl are regular and quick.
Galtür's own slopes, above a lift base at Wirl, a short bus-ride from the village, are not very challenging and can be bleak in poor weather; but the black runs are ideal for intermediates and there are fine nursery slopes. There is a small terrain-park at the top of the Soppalift drag. Galtür has 45km of cross-country loops, some quite testing.The resort promotes its off snow activities in particular to families, including a great leisure centre and other dedicated children's areas.
