Ski Zillertal 3000 - Hintertux Glacier

This ski region includes the Hintertux Glacier and the skiing areas Eggalm, Rastkogel, Mayrhofen Penken and Ahorn.

Ski Zillertal 3000 offers 199 km of ski slopes and 65 modern state-of-the art facilities in the five skiing areas Hintertux Glacier - the only year-round skiing area of Tyrol -, Eggalm, Rastkogel, Mayrhofen Penken and Ahorn. Adrenaline junkies can risk skiing on the “Harakiri” slope, the steepest slope of Austria. This ski run is characterized by a downhill gradient of 78% and a length of 1 km, and it is steeper than an approach of a ski jump!

Are you a speed-skier? Then you can try skiing on the race tracks Penken, Sunjet or Unterberg. However, those who do not want to break out in a cold sweat can enjoy some pleasant ski routes, offering a great panoramic view : the “XXL Route” offers red slopes and the “Penken Route” takes you across simple, blue slopes. Slightly more challenging is the “Höhenmeterfresser Route”, in which you overcome about 13,000 metres of altitude. This ski route includes red and black ski slopes. And really hard is the “Fun+Action Route”, which also includes the feared “Harakiri” slope.

But the absolute highlight is the Hintertux Glacier, offering slopes as far as the eyes can see. Enjoy the fabulous view from the Dolomites to Mt. Zugspitze barrier-free: all cable cars are accessible at ground level! Already in 2011 the Hintertux Glacier was declared “Best glacier ski resort worldwide”. New highlights are the Funslope Hintertux and the children’s world “Pepis Kinderland” at the Penkenjoch. By the way: the “Zillertal Superskipass” is valid in the whole skiing area.
