Skiing on the Hintertux glacier

There are over 700 glaciers in Austria, but only one of them guarantees snow on 365 days in the year: the Hintertux Glacier in Tyrol with its sensational year-round skiing region.


Majestic mountain, dreamy winter holiday

The impressive glacier, which can be seen from Klausnerhof under good weather conditions, is Hintertux’s landmark for a reason. It is the only mountain in Austria that is  snow-coveredevery day of the year and it has optimally prepared skiing pistes. Skiers and snowboarders can speed down the miles long, world-famous slopes, while enjoying the breath-taking mountain backdrop. The pistes are suitable for beginners as well as for professionals. Deep powder snow fans especially love the off-piste adventures in the Lärmstange area. In the Bretterpark Hintertux, located at 3200 meters, you will find a paradise for freestyle skiers. Are you looking for a holiday for the entire family? Then the Familypark Hintertux is cut out for you. The natural beauty has its very own charm depending on the season: In sping, the mountains are covered by a fine powder snow layer on the mountains that glistens in the sunshine. In summer, you can enjoy a spectacular view  on the Großglockner mountain, the Dolomite Alps or the Zugspitze mountain while sliding through the snow. In fall, Mother Hulda starts to shake the first load of new snow onto the mountains – and in winter, the entire “Zillertal 3000” area will be ready for all alpine athletes.

“Our Hintertux Glacier has already won multiple awards for the best glacier ski resort.“
