Skiing for everyone

Beginners and experienced skiers and snowboarders alike can enjoy a great variety on 60 kilometres of slope of all difficulty levels in the Hintertux Glacier ski resort. An attraction for deep snow fans are the brilliant freeride descents in the Lärmstange area.

Impressive glacier world

Glaciers are and remain a very special type of natural attraction. No matter at what time of year one visits a glacier, one is repeatedly impressed. Its immensely powerful appearance between bizarre ice fields, crevasses, rock masses and snow dunes produces even greater respect for the miracle of nature every time. The millennia-old, local ice layers are recognised particularly well by a turquoise blue break in the ice, which can be clearly recognised in the summer.

Whether young or old, everyone will be on an absolute high on the Hintertux Glacier. The Nature Ice Palace of the Hintertux Glacier awaits with mysterious ice formations and glistening ice crystals in a legendary environment.

Betterpark - snow park XL

The Betterpark in Hintertux guarantees excellent conditions for snowboarders and freestyle skiers from April till May and from September until the start of December, depending on snow conditions. The snow park in XL format offers a whole lot of fun and action in the snow. However, for beginners and newcomers to the freestyle scene, the Familypark Hintertux at the Sommerberg is the more suitable terrain on which to test oneself. It substitutes for the Betterpark and is open from December to April.
