Skiing and Snowboarding in Summer

Skiing fun on the Hintertux Glacier - 365 days a year!

Summer skiing on the glacier

Do you love the winter and start looking forward to the pistes months before? Or maybe you can’t even imagine strapping on skis in the summer? Summer skiing is a fun, one-of-a-kind activity that is becoming ever more popular.

Experience summer skiing in all its glory at the beautiful year-round Hintertux Glacier ski resort in Zillertal. Modern cable cars take you from 1,500 metres above sea level to 3,250 metres in just a few minutes. There are between 10 and 18 well-prepared snowy slopes and up to 10 lifts operating on the Hintertux Glacier in summer. The longest run is 2 km and ends right in front of the sunny terrace of the Tuxer Fernerhaus restaurant at 2,660 metres.

Summer skiing is suited to early birds. Experience the best runs in the morning before the summer sun gets too high in the sky.


Calling all freestyle fans - the Betterpark Hintertux, one of the highest freestyle spots in Austria, is also among the best snowparks in the Alps. The park is open from the beginning of April to the end  of May and from mid-September to the beginning of December.

Hire skis and equipment

You don’t have to bring your skis and gear.

If you start getting antsy for the glittering snow on the glacier, hire the necessary equipment from one of our sports shops and you will experience a wonderful morning of skiing on the Hintertux Glacier.
