The main attraction of Hintertux is obvious – its glacier. It is not only extensive, it arguably has the most challenging and interesting runs on any lift-served alpine glacier.
Note that snow and weather conditions can vary significantly in the mountain environment especially in the summer months. You need to be prepared to perform at your best in a variety of snow conditions.
Hintertux is a village at the end of the Tuxertal valley, a side valley of the Zillertal Valley, Tirol, Austria. It is part of the municipality of Tux, which encompasses the entire valley.
Hintertux is famous for its glacier skiing area, usually marketed as "Hintertuxer Gletscher", but actually located mostly on the Gefrorene Wand (German for "frozen wall") and partly on the Riepenkees glaciers. The highest of the 22 lifts in the area reaches 3250 m of altitude.
