Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Tirol Snowcard - Cheaper for EU Residents Post-Brexit?

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Currently planning as much skiing as possible for 2021-22 and am tentatively looking at the possibility of a season card somewhere.

Although the official Snowcard website makes no reference to who the pass is valid for, the Ski Welt website states as shown below Shocked


Does anyone in the Tirol know if that's correct? I can't see any reference anywhere to alternative pricing for Non-EU residents? Is it another post-Brexit shocker? Confused

UPDATE: The conditions of the Snowcard website state as follows on the English version, with no mention of EU Citizens wink

I'm assuming the bit about Tirol residents and students means that they get a reduction, although it doesn't read very clearly in the translated version and there is no mention of such reductions in the price list.

The Snow Card Tirol is basically available to all persons at the regular rate, according to the price list. Persons whose main residence is in Tyrol (proof to be
provided by way of confirmation of registration, not older than 3 months; the confirmation MUST be presented on the same day as the ticket purchase. No card will be issued otherwise), as well as all persons with an employment relationship in Tyrol upon presentation of their social security confirmation (not older than 3 months), and for students of the University of Innsbruck and students of a higher education institution or university of applied sciences resident in Tyrol, upon presentation of current proof of study, entitling them to a reduced rate for the current academic year/semester
.

@mountainaddict, not sure about the EU citizens bit, but yeah, Tirol residents get discounts on various Tirol ski tickets, but I believe that there is some legislation that prevents this from being openly advertised. You get the reductions with bits of official paperwork and/or knowing the magic words wink

Thanks Scarlet. Spoke to my bro (previous Snow Card holder) who confirmed that, when he bought one a few years back, all that was needed was a name, a photo and payment.

Hopefully still the same as Mrs MA and I have decided to go for it. We're aiming to buy the Snowcard at Hintertux or Stubai on our week-long trip to Austria from 5th November Very Happy

@mountainaddict, it's always been cheaper for Tirol residents, nothing to do with Brexit. If I remember correctly Hintertux is cheaper too, not advertised but when we turned up in a Kufstein registered car the guy in the ticket place asked my then landlord if he was resident so they got discount, we as non residents at the time had to pay full price. BTW your trip timing is perfect, tipping down here at 800m, heavy snow up on the tops.

There was just a bit of a hoo-haa at some point due to it being illegal under EU rules to offer discounts for locals or something like that. So as Scarlet says they now just have to be sneaky about how they do it and make sure it looks like all EU citizens are being treated equally wink But there are no requirements for any sort of citizenship or residency to buy it (unlike the Freizeitticket).

@clarky999, you’d think the EU would change a rule so that a discount can apply that encourages locals to stay local. Encourage more sustainable skiing and all that.

I'm also thinking of being in Austria long enough this winter to make it worth buying the Snowcard Very Happy . Does anyone know if the card is valid for public transport in Tyrol? (I know that many of the individual resort passes also cover public transport in the locality)

A US citizen should write in and ask how much they have to pay.
