Winter goes into extra time

Now in spring, when "higher is simply better!", the glacier ski area plays its trump card to the full and is a guarantee for 100% snow reliability. A lot of snow has accumulated at this altitude over the winter months, so winter sports enthusiasts now have the very best conditions to get the best of the winter skiing. While at the beginning of the year temperatures were still in double figures below zero, the warm rays of the spring sun are now tickling the skin.
The Hintertux Glacier has the longest ski season in Austria and winter sports enthusiasts can enjoy the best conditions on wide panoramic slopes between 3,250 m and 2,100 m above sea level.  The Betterpark Hintertux, Austria's highest and most snow-sure freestyle spot, also opens its doors on 20 April and offers airtime deluxe until June!

But it's not just the snow conditions in spring that are unique, so is the programme of events. Until 5 May, for example, you have the unique opportunity to drive a 600 hp Pistenbully yourself in the Pistenbully Testarea and feel the interplay of snow, technology and power. You can also enjoy exclusive Early Bird skiing, be one of the first to carve down the pistes on the Hintertux Glacier or take a look behind the scenes of the ski area on technical tours. The entire programme for the Glacier Spring can be found here.
