I went up to Galtur for the day when I was staying in Ischgl further down the valley, the two of them and a few other mid-sized ski areas down the valley are part of the Silvretta Pass. I quite liked it, the resort was quite small and low-key which was more my kind of thing than big-brash Ischgl.
The ski area itself wasn't as big either but still had a heralthy vertical and this must be one of Auistria's highest villages so the snow was great. The ski area has been divided in to 'zones' for different types/abilities of skiing and boarding, we had some great long runs down below the gondola.
There was a bad avalanche here some years ago and they'd built a new avalanche defence barrier which had a combined exhibition and memorial to the victims in it, which was quite a beautiful place.
