Winter Sports in Zillertal
Those thinking of a winter holiday, think of the Zillertal Valley. Where else could you find so many ski resorts, toboggan runs, well maintained winter hiking paths and cross country ski trails?
Skiing in Zillertal
Gentle slopes for beginners, varied family runs and the heart-stopping Harakiri - with 78% gradient, one of Austria's steepest pistes.
178 state of the art lifts and almost 500 km of groomed slopes - winter at its best in the Zillertal mountains!
Austria's only year round ski resort, the Hintertuxer Glacier, entices visitors with powder snow from October through to May.
Perfectly groomed slopes and fabulous views at 3,250 metres above sea level guarantee perfect ski days.
P.S. the Hintertur Glacier has been voted "Best Glacier Ski Resort Worldwide".
Cross Country Skiing in Mayrhofen
Get active away from the slopes! 200 km of groomed cross country ski trails in all levels of difficulty provide some welcome diversity during your holiday.
A special highlight is the Burgschrofen trail in Mayrhofen, which is floodlit until 22.00 hrs.
Toboggan runs - winter fun for the whole family
A leisurely ascent, short stop for refreshments at one of the many mountain huts and then a thrilling toboggan run down. The longest run measuring 7 km is the floodlit natural toboggan run at Gerlosstein. The ascent here can also be made with the cable car.
