---- since 1973

The "ski lodge

Since 1974, the Ortner family has been running gastronomy on Villgrater’s local mountain. At that time, the Thurntaler Rast was built in order to be able to serve the skiers at the then Thurntaler T-bar lift, especially in winter. Since then, not only has the ski area constantly developed, but the Thurntaler Rast has also been modernized and expanded (most recently in 2013).

In winter it is still the “ski hut” of yesteryear, but especially in summer it is also a culinary insider tip for gourmets. In addition, 5 apartments allow vacations directly in the skiing and hiking area Thurntaler at 2,000 m above sea level – a unique experience!
