The Silvretta Ski Safari is a mesmerizing journey through the snow from Montafon to the Paznauntal valley in neighbouring Tirol, which you can undertake individually or accompanied by a ski guide. The tour starts in the early morning in Partenen. After a ride up on Vermuntbahn, you take the tunnel bus to Bielerhöhe heights and the Silvretta reservoir. Then descend to Galtür, followed by a transfer on a snow cat up to Zeinisjoch. The culminating highlight is the descent down to Partenen. The guided ski safari can be booked along with some theory about avalanches. www.silvretta-bielerhoehe.at/en
Madrisa Circuit – Switzerland and back: this guided border–crossing, technically undemanding day tour takes skiers from Gargellen/ Montafon to Switzerland and back.

The Ski Safari Kleinwalsertal starts with a ride up on the Ifenbahn cableway. After mounting to Hahnenköpfle you will take the long descent to Schönenbach in Bregenzerwald.
