The Ski Area on the Zwölferkopf

Pertisau Ski Area, AustriaPertisau's ski area is on the Zwölferkopf peak to the south of the village centre.

The area is good for beginner skiers, with three small drag-lifts at the bottom of the gondola.

Beginner skiers progress to the upper slopes, with some short undemanding blue runs and spectacular views to the lake and village.

A long blue from the bottom of the longest drag lift is open in good snow conditions and leads to the gondola base station.

Those of intermediate or advanced level will find a lack of challenge, with only one longer red run to the gondola bottom station. However, the scenery makes a day's skiing worthwhile.

Ski Verdict

A limited area with great views and some interesting runs to the valley and a few simple blue runs at the top.
