ICE COLD FACTS
The Val Senales Glacier, called Hochjochferner, lies between the South Tyrolean Val Senales and the Austrian Venter Tal in the Ötztal Alps. It is 185 hectares in size and over 3 kilometres long. About one sixth of the area serves as a ski resort. Glaciologists are also observing a retreat of the ice masses at Hochjochferner, but the retreat of the glacier tongue is less pronounced than at other central Alpine glaciers.
