Skiing

500 km of skiing fun in Austria's largest ski valley

Skiing is a passion. Once you have experienced happiness on skis, you can't imagine anything else. Head up the mountain, carve down the slopes, and enjoy the feeling of unlimited freedom to the fullest. If you are a skiing enthusiast, there is no better place to be than in the Zillertal. Why?

Here are the facts:

  • 506 km of the best prepared ski slopes
  • 181 state-of-the-art lifts
  • Skiing at elevations from 580 to a staggering 3,250 m
  • Numerous rustic huts and mountain restaurants
  • Ski rental and sports shops 
  • 25 ski schools with around 500 ski instructors

The feeling? Indescribable. Thanks to its high altitude, the Zillertal and the Tuxertal in particular have some of the best snow conditions in Austria. If Old Man Winter doesn't cooperate, snow-making equipment is available. It is as simple as that.


Ski schools in the Zillertal

Even in Tux, no one is born a master of skiing! Therefore, it is a good thing that there are 25 ski schools here in the Zillertal.

The choice isn't easy, but they all have three things in common: expertise, professionalism, and genuine Tyrolean charm.

It is never too late to discover the Tuxertal on skis! Those who are more experienced have noticed that with skiing, you never stop learning. Depending on your preferences, guides offer group or private lessons. 

Or would you like to book a personal ski guide to experience the deep snow away from the slopes? How about a ski tour? Perhaps with Nina, daughter of Tirolerhof hosts and proud owner of her own ski school "Snowlife". All info about lessons and individual requests is available at our reception desk.

Children's skiing lessons

There is a saying that goes: "You can't teach an old dog new tricks". Of course, adults can learn how to ski even into old age, but it is easier for children. Here, kids will be introduced to the sport of skiing in playful ways.

The focus is on: fun, fun, and even more fun. With professional ski instructors, your little ones will be in the best hands. So, Mom and Dad can carve down the slopes of the Zillertal by themselves. Of course, the children will be provided with a meal, and the loving and competent supervision enables children as young as 3 to ride the lift and dash down the slopes of the Tuxertal after only a few days.

We recommend that you book lessons prior to your arrival either at the respective ski school or at our reception desk. For your children, we recommend "Luggi's Ski School". They are the professionals for the little ones!

Ski rental and sports shops

The car is loaded with skis, poles, and helmets, and the children hardly have room to move in the back seat. This is no way to start a vacation.

Spread out through the entire Zillertal in the towns of Mayrhofen, Finkenberg, Tux, and Lanersbach, you will find ski rental shops that offer the newest equipment and materials. With the equipment already waxed and tended to, you can enjoy a carefree start to your skiing adventure in the Zillertal.

Stay up-to-date when it comes to fashion in the Tuxertal

Later in the afternoon in Tux, have you had enough of skiing, boarding, tobogganing, etc.? Then it is time to indulge in one of the most wonderful pastimes in the world: shopping! The Tuxertal has much to offer when it comes to fashion.

Along with a variety of shops where you can find popular souvenirs from the region, there are also many fashion stores that offer high-quality labels and competent advice. Whether casual clothing, ski suits, or a stylish outfit for the evening, the Zillertal is a true paradise for shoppers. 

Awaiting Tirolerhof guests in our partner business INSIDER are great discounts.
