Skiing is Just Brilliant … on the Hintertux Glacier

Ski lifts and cable cars literally make skiing at the Hintertux Glacier one of the highest pleasures. And while some enjoy downhill skiing on the glacier and the panoramic views, children especially enjoy the tubing run and a good snowball fight.

Gastronomy in the Hintertux Glacier Summer Ski Area

Summer sun and glacier ice – hence the legendary “Schiwasser” (fruit syrup with water) makes its way down the throat twice as fast! The Gletscherhütte, Tuxer Jochhaus and Spannagelhaus take care of refreshments and snacks to strengthen yourself when summer skiing in Tyrol. Tip: Enjoy the unique panorama with numerous three-thousanders from the sun terrace.
