The path to the “eternal ice”: skiing on the Hintertux Glacier

When you leave our Hintertux Hotel in summerly temperatures, you only need to walk a few metres to get to the Gletscherbus 1 cable car. It will swiftly take you from 1,501 m to 2,031 m above sea level. Once you have arrived at Sommerbergalm, you will immediately feel the fresh and cooler air.

Gletscherbus 1, 2, 3 take you right away to the year-round ski resort in Austria

Last but not least, the Gletscherbus 3 cable car, which is the highest cable car system in the world using two cables, will take you to an unbelievable 3,250 m above sea level.

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.

And the best thing: When it comes to skiing on the Hintertux Glacier, exclusivity has nothing to do with “expensive”. See for yourself! To the summer prices of the Hintertux Glacier lift.

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.
