Hintertux / Tux valley


Hintertux summit

The upside

  • Hintertux has one of the best year-round glaciers in the world
  • Lanersbach’s slopes, a little way down-valley, form part of an extensive area, linked to Mayrhofen
  • Wide-ranging area lift pass
  • Some excellent off-piste
  • Quiet, traditional villages

The downside

  • Not ideal for beginners or timid intermediates
  • Not surprisingly, glacier slopes can be cold and windy

    News – 2016/17

    A new fun slope is to be created in the Sommerberg area.

    News – 2015/16

    The powerful new Lärmstange 2 six-seat chair lift was built on the slopes below Grosser Kaserer, running more or less parallel to the Kaserer I drag lift. Curiously, it does not seem to be directly accessible from the slow old Lärmstange chair lower down – according to the piste map, you have to ride the Kaserer 2 drag to get to the new chair.


    For guaranteed good snow, Hintertux is simply one of the best places to go. Its glacier is not only extensive; it is also one of the two most challenging and interesting lift-served glacier areas in the Alps (along with Stubai). But the quieter, friendlier, non-glacial slopes down the valley at Lanersbach, linked to the slopes of Mayrhofen, are also well worth exploring. Both of those resorts get their own pages on the site.
