Glacier-Skiing

Ski-Fun in Hintertux - the whole year through

The eternal ice. It is fascinating us since living memory. And it delights us – because we in Tux benefit from the great location at the foot of the glacier. It is not just impressive to view, but also offers many different possibilities during the warmer time of the year – such as skiing, hiking, cave tours, a visit in the ice caves of “Natur Eis Palast” or even a swim in ice cold water at 3.230 metres above sea level.

Hintertuxer Glacier ist the only skiing area in Austria that is opened 365 days a year. It offers comfortable red pistes as well as sporty black level pistes – snowy fun for every kind of sports enthusiast, no matter if skiing, snowboarding or ski touring! How much of you can claim to have been skiing during midsummer? Here at our place it is possible anytime!

Anyone who believes that the glacier just offers ski fun and a great view is wrong. Because the Hintertuxer Glacier is a giant place for adventurers and nature lovers – even during spring and summer.

Sunny skiing pleasure at the top of the alps

Especially during spring skiing on the glacier is a great experience – when temperatures rise and plants start to bloom down in the valley. That’s also the time when you can dispense with thick skiing jackets. Just don’t forget about a good sunblock as the sun even has more power in these heights. We also highly recommend to relax in one of the deck chairs whilst enjoying a cold beer and a tasty snack.

It is best to get up early and use the fresh prepaired ski pistes at the glacier before relaxing in the green garden of Hotel Tirolerhof in the valley – and listen to the spring awakening and the chirping concert of the birds. Sounds compelling? That’s because it is!
