Ski- & Gletscherwelt Zillertal 3000

Guaranteed snow all year round! There is only one ski area in Austria that can make this statement about its white coat – the HINTERTUX GLACIER! Fun in the snow is guaranteed here 365 days a year – with powder snow even guaranteed from October to May! In the winter months, Austria’s only year-round ski area is part of Zillertal’s largest ski area – the Zillertal 3000 Ski and Glacier World. 202 kilometres of fresh powder-snow pistes of all levels of difficulty, untouched deep-snow slopes and demanding mogul runs quicken the heart of any winter sports fan. Seamlessly transition from the demanding and varied Eggalm holiday paradise to the sunny Rastkogel plateau and continue down the breathtaking panoramic descent or on the 150-seater Tux cable car to the ‘entertainment quarter’ of Penken with the Penken Park & Harakiri run. Alternatively, opt for the route via the artificial-snow-covered valley runs to Hintertux, Vorderlanersbach or Lanersbach. A truly stunning descent runs from the Gefrorene Wand at 3,250 metres to Hintertux at 1,500 metres. With a length of 12 kilometres and an altitude difference of 1,750 metres, this run is certain to leave your calves tingling.

The Funslope Hintertux is going to make adventures happen at Sommerbergalm at 2100 metres.
