I am a Murtalerin – Gaalaxie

  • 2 minutes of reading time
In the Murtal, you can not only discover distant starry worlds in the star tower. In Gaal, a whole Gaalaxie awaits enthusiastic skiers. The Gaal lifts inspire with great piste conditions and snow adventures for young and old.

Learn to ski gaalactically

In the GaalaXie in Gaal, children learn to ski and enjoy themselves. The 60-metre-long magic carpet catapults young and old ski bunnies into a colourful planetary world in the Gaal lifts. Here, little ski bunnies can try out and perfect their first turns in peace and quiet and on a gentle slope in an area covering 2 hectares. Before moving on to the two large lifts. There are now 2-day ski courses for beginners from 2.5 years of age. Intensive, personalised lessons await the little ones, who learn to brake and make their first turns. The courses on offer range from two-day courses and Bambini courses to junior half-day courses, as well as individual lessons.

From the magic carpet to the chairlift

The GaalaXie in the Gaal has two big brothers to be proud of. The T-bar lift, or Mirtlerlift, and the chairlift on the Hölzlberg, which is the only chairlift in the region. Both are the stars of night skiing, as the Gaal lifts open their slopes every Thursday and Friday from 26 December from 7pm to 9pm after they have been freshly groomed.

Night operating days:
from 26 to 29 December & 02 to 05 January
in each case from 19:00 to 21:00
then every Thursday continuously until 18:00
and every Friday from 19:00 to 21:00

The night ski season ends on 23 February 2024

A Gaalaxy talks about itself

Erlebnisregion Murtal: "What connects you to the Murtal?"
Gaalaxie: "Like the Murtal, I am simply gaalactic."

Erlebnisregion Murtal: "When do you feel your heart beating in the Murtal?"
GaalaXie: "When little children throw themselves into the skiing fun and then beam when they make the first turn, their eyes shine with pride - my little motorised heart beats just terribly fast."

Erlebnisregion Murtal: "Where is your favourite place in the Murtal?"
GaalaXie: "Do you know Wasserberg Castle? It's such a beautiful house, I'm completely in love with it."
