The Longest Ski Tunnel In The World (Watch)


Snowbird, Utah is the only ski resort in North America with a tunnel to allow for skier traffic, but they’re much more common in Europe.

The longest of these tunnels is at Silvretta Montafon Ski Area, Austria.

The Hochjoch tunnel is a whopping 476m (that’s 1,561 ft.)!!!! For context, that’s more than twice as long as the Peruvian Tunnel at Snowbird.

Check out the video below of a skier making his way through the tunnel. It gives a better perspective to just how massive it is:

It’s a slow and mellow ride, but it’s pretty dang impressive, right?

The tunnel is part of the longest run in the Austrian state of Vorarlberg, totaling 12km (nearly 7.5 miles) long!!

The tunnel is clearly marked on the trail map below:
