Area Profile

The Hintertux glacier is one of Europe's largest year-round skiing operation and in winter is part of the Ziller valley pass that takes in Mayrhofen. The glacier is serviced by increasingly high-tech lifts including Glacier Bus 3 with 24 person cabins capable of uplifting 3000 skiers per hour from the bottom to the top of the glacier.

There are five villages in the valley beneath the glacier, which is regarded by many as having the best summer skiing in the world and is one of the few centres open for snow spoprts 365 days per year. The largest is Lanersbach, where most of the facilities are based. The little village of Hintertux itself, at the head of the valley, has thermal springs. The lifts are directly at the huge day-visitors car-park. Apart from skiing there are motre than 250 km of hiking trails and Natursport Tirol offers active sports like paragliding, canyoning, flying fox and caving.
