Ski resorts in Austria
Hintertux is a glacier resort in the middle of Tuxertal, a half an hour drive from Mayrhofen. The skiing takes place just over 10,000 feet and down to 4,900 feet above sea level. Here you can enjoy first class skiing with great variety. You will find everything from well-prepared slopes to freeriding. A nice detail worth mentioning about Hinterux is that the ski resort is actually open 365 days a year. During the winter it offers 143 miles of slopes. In the spring you can enjoy the warmer weather and sunny days while exploring 37 miles of slopes on the glacier.

Hintertux is a beloved ski resort and it is easy to understand why. Aside from the fact that the slopes are varied, long, and challenging, it is a place where skiers constantly stop to just enjoy the landscape. The Austrian mountain peaks that pop up on the horizon, the deep valleys and the small alpine cabins will make any skier turn into a mountain romantic. Try taking the longest slope down, which is as much as two km. You want to know the best of it all? It leads all the way down to a cozy restaurant!

Do you want to experience a true Austrian Tyrloese afterski? If so, Hohenhaus Tenne, which is located directly at the valley station of the cabin in Hintertux, is a must. Search for "Helmut aus Mallorca - In Hintertux hau'n wir auf Putz" on Google and you will even be able to hear a song about Hintertux. And yes - the skiing is so much better than the song.
Hintertux belong to Zillertal.

Have been 2 times in Hintertux and it is crazy powerful and beautiful and has really good pistes and also good off piste. This year we drove a day with a guide and it was the best skiing day of my life. Drove some lift near off piste trains in the morning. A ride on the outside of Tuxer Joch Haus with connection down to piste 1a and further down to dalatation. The second scratch from the second last gondola station before the last peak and then down into the hallway on the outside of the 2nd person's piste and then down to the downhill. A lot of ravines and spectacular woods to get through.
In the afternoon we went for a ride in the back of the top station. You go down a short distance for piste 5a sloping skiers left, mop up about 75 m and then walk over a comb. Thereafter, approximately 2,000 meters in unspoilt terrain await down in the valley (southeast) all the way to the pond at Schlegeisspeichel lake. Indescribably beautiful and cool and at the same time very simple and safe off-piste. However, requires some strength and energy.
When we went the road was snowed at the pond so we had to slide, spell and walk about an hour along the road and then taxi to Mayrhofen.
No adventure you go out on your own. Guide is an absolute must and well worth it.

The Glacier Hintertux with a peak of 3200 meters offers varied skiing for both beginners and offpiste riders. With its height, it is mostly sunbathing and a sunny sunny spring day there is a restaurant at the top of the hill to stop for energy filling.

The first cabin takes you up to the summer mountain alpine, there are backs for those little ones and the park for those who want to laugh at the jump. Next cabin takes you to the next station, tuxer fernerhaus, here are lots of nice red long slopes to find in.
The third cabin will take you to the top. When you get up early you can go fine manchester in the olperer slopes. When you get warm in your clothes you can proceed to the cashier slopes, which are perfect slopes for practicing the carvings.
If you want to get out properly, you can go to Schwartse Pfanne, which gives you 12 km of downhill skiing.

Hintertux actually offers everything and it is also snow proof. For lunch you eat really tasty Austrian cuisine, like schnitzel, gulasch and it's not very expensive.
The apres-skin offers the heels of the ceiling to the umpump music and the tuning is always on top.

Return from Hintertux after the second visit this year. First a turn at the beginning of June and now three ski days in early November. On both occasions the surface has been super. The snowfall in September and October made the slopes soft and nice, okay even in June. Challenging and steep slopes despite glacier, which I have understood is quite unusual. Have stayed at hotels near the gondola on both occasions and like the little village. Sure, no insane selection of bars and restaurants, but good food at the hotels (Neutuxer Hof and Hintertuxer Hof) and good afterski at Tenne Hintertux. The restaurant of 3,000 möh is also the right one. The Zillental Valley is magically beautiful and easily accessible by car from Munich.

Hintertux Gletcher offers great glacier skiing in autumn or even at any time of the year. Three modern, fast and really big egg lifts take up to +3200 meters. Up there are tens of sledge lifts and two seat lifts that serve about fifty kilometers of piste. It may be possible that they should invest a little in these lifts, as the lift queues are not really related to the space in the slopes. However, as much as possible, you get six hundred high meters of well-traveled rides down to the Tuxer fernerhaus where you can, in addition to eating, also take the lift back into the valley. Slightly outdated, and in the sunshine in the morning, you'll find the Kasere lifts with awesome carving. Despite free ski buses running every fifteen minutes, one should be careful to check where the accommodation is located. This then most of the accommodation in the long valley says it is located just next to the glacier.

Visited Tuxen 2010 v.10.

So far, I've been skiing the best place. Lots of snow and huge long and wide slopes. The food is also clockwise. Easy to get to and from Mayrhofen by ski bus.
Try the slopes around the sledding lifts at the top. Folktomt and crazy lovely slopes!
Wonderful skiing simply. Can not find fault.

+ High altitude = Snow proof
+ Wonderful carving pistes
+ Really enhanced and thoughtful lift system
+ Great eateries
+ Long wide slopes

- Take some time to ski a ski bus from Mayrhofen
- Do not have a cabin there :)

Hintertux is really worth I have to say. Have been there around 8 times, so I know, believe me, the pillow is really go! The park is oily around the sports promise, but around Easter it is usually not so well prepared. Hintertux is not the ski resort you choose for the park, much more for the wide and inhumanly long slopes and the wonderful lane between the slopes!

Austria's largest, and also best known as the best glacier. A visit to this ski resort is simply a must in life!

Hintertux is a fat good ski resort with both good park rides and pistes, cushioning rides. However, it is expensive at the restaurant and we saw Jon Olsson last we were there: D

Hintertux is one of the best ice cream I've been to. You get the feeling that it's more than a glassier, actually feels really good. A little bit of sticks and racing goats but, on the whole, very good snow

Hintertux is one of the most beautiful places on earth. Cozy valley and glacier skiing are exciting. And the lifts are interesting. Glacier bus runs on two lines and takes us first to Station 1 (a line) There are quiet backs but also nice offpiste. Then go 2an high above a valley (dare not think what would happen if the line burst =)) and get to station 2. There is a large restaurant, Tuxer-Ferner Haus, where you can eat very well during lunch. Then you can get to the top with 3an. From there it is very nice view. You can actually switch to Italy. The park is right above, so it's only to go down to the slopes Olperer I and II. The park is cozy in a mountain shadow and is not usually in the best condition during the winter. It is offered on a yearly ride, in summer you have a camp with many professionals and parties.
