Skiing all the year round… You can do just that at the Hintertux Glacier. At 3,250 metres above sea level, there's snow 365 days a year and that means optimum conditions for unending skiing pleasure. As Austria's one and only year-round skiing region, the Ski and Glacier World Zillertal 3000 has been crowned best glacier skiing region in the world. And for good reason: after all, winter sports lovers expect to find perfectly-prepared, snow-sure downhill courses, an extensive gastronomic selection and last but not least a fascinating natural experience. If you want to experience the glacier without boards strapped to your feet, you can come prepared as a hiker and observe the natural ice palace – actually a crevice in the glacier – or sit back, relax and simply enjoy the views of the imposing mountain from the valley below.
