The Hintertux Glacier offers 365 days of skiing each year (barring weather disruptions) and for those looking for an early or late season ski trip to Mayrhofen the Hintertux Glacier offers an absolute snow guarantee. During the mid season the glacier additionally offers the chance to ski on superb snow – with a top lift height of 3250m the Hintertux Glacier can provide outstanding snow conditions. The views are also something to behold and unlike some glacier skiing areas there is a ski route all the way to the resort of Hintertux. For those skiing in the Penken ski area of Mayrhofen then the best way to get to the Hintertux Glacier is on a ski safari over to Lanersbach in the Eggalm area of the Zillertal 3000 ski region and from there it is just a short bus transfer to the glacier base-station. The Hintertux Glacier is one of the steeper glacier skiing areas in Austria and tends to offer tougher and steeper terrain than many other glaciers in the region. Advanced skiers and better intermediates should find a lot to do on the Hintertux Glacier.
