perfect slopes in the Zillertal

Fascinating world of ice and snow

Year-round skiing on the Hintertux Glacier

Austria's only ski resort open 365 days a year offers 60 kilometres of slopes and a powder snow guarantee from October through until May. It is able to do so thanks its exceptional altitude up to 3250 metres above sea level. As you wind your way up to the resort on the "Gletscherbus 3" it is as if you are climbing up into the sky itself. Visitors staying at the Tuxerhof should definitely not miss out on the chance to experience this fascinating world of snow and ice.

Hit the slopes 365 days a year

The Tuxerhof - your basecamp for alpine adventures

In autumn the first snow of the season falls on the glacier, drawing skiers and snowboards keen to start the season early and enjoy the perfect conditions on the pistes and in the snowpark.

In winter the Hintertux Glacier joins forces with the nearby resorts of Eggalm, Rastkogel, Finkenberg, Penken/Mayrhofen and Ahorn to form the huge Ski- und Gletscherwelt Zillertal 3000.

199 kilometres of snowsure pistes accessible with one single lift pass!

With so many things to see, do and explore, it is hard to know where to start! Speak to a member of staff at the 5* Tuxerhof for tips on what to do in each of the seasons.

Spring & summer

Explore the Hintertux Glacier in the warm months of the year

From perfect powder to wonderfully soft spring snow, the warm months of year offer some of the best skiing you could imagine. Freeriders will enjoy the slopes around Lärmstange after a fresh dump of snow, while freestylers can dial in their tricks in the sun at the Betterpark Hintertux at 3200 metres above sea level.

Summer can bring "all four seasons in one day" on the glacier with its majestic views stretching from the Großglockner, Austria's highest mountain, to the Dolomites in the south and the Zugspitze on the German border to the north.

While some prefer to spend a hot summer's day by the lake or riding the trails, skiers who just can't get enough of the white stuff can hit the slopes on the Hintertux Glacier and get their fix of skiing.

Children will love the local mascot, Luis the Glacier Flea, who they will find in the Glacier Flea Park on the Sommerberg mountain.
