The Zillertal 3000 ski region is located at the southern end of the Zillertal Valley, bordering Italy and offering the highest skiing in the valley including the Hintertux Glacier. Mayrhofen is probably the most well known ski holiday resort in the Zillertal 3000 ski region and it is the first resort reached from a northerly approach in the Zillertal Valley. Mayrhofen also offers probably the best tough ski and snowboard terrain in the entire Zillertal Valley on the Penken side of the ski area. The Ahorn ski area forms the second part of the Mayrhofen ski area and is best suited to beginners and family skiers. From the Penken side of the Mayrhofen, the ski area links up with first Finkenberg and then the Egglam area above Lanersbach. There are some excellent routes for intermediate over to this part of the Zillertal 3000 ski region. Beyond that and connected by a short bus transfer along the valley is the Hintertux Glacier, the highest skiing in the Zillertal Valley at 3250m and the only glacier skiing area in Austria that offers 365 days per year. The snow conditions and scenery on the Hintertux Glacier can be outstanding much of the year.
