Ski Zillertal Superski in Austria

Zillertal Superski

Ski Zillertal Superski for ONE amazing ski area! Located 50km from Innsbruck airport, the area comprises some six ski regions; Spieljoch Fuegen, Ski Optimal, Zillertal Arena, Mayrhofen, Ski and Glacier World Zillertal 3000, and finally the Hintertux Glacier. You really will be spoilt for choice, but which part will you choose to visit?

Spieljoch is an ideal base for families, especially those with young children, while Fuegen offers skiing for all levels, including the longest downhill run in the Zillertal Superski area. Ski Optimal is an award winning resort, with 155km of pistes that largely cater for intermediate skiers. There's also cross country, night skiing, and a floodlit toboggan run.

Visiting Zillertal Superski

Or what about Zillertal Arena, one of the largest and most modern ski resorts in Austria? Here there are 165km of excellent pistes, snowboarding facilities, ski school, and a 1600m cross country trail, with many mountain huts and cafes in between.

Then there is Mayrhofen, a world famous resort, combining the 'leisure mountain' Ahorn, with the 'action mountain' of Penken. There are a great range of runs for all abilities, and one of the largest snow parks in Europe for snowboarders.

Last but by no means least, there is the choice of Zilltertal 3000 or the Hintertux Glacier resorts. Zillertal 3000 is altitude skiing at its best. There are 227 km of slopes that go up to 3,250 metres above sea level. 136km of these are suited to intermediates, 32km to advanced, and 59km for beginners, so a good choice for all levels of skier. Hintertux Glacier is famous as Austria's only year round ski resort. A scenic cable car ride takes you to a mix of superb pistes for all levels, and a snow park that attracts world famous snowboarders.

Lift passes for 1 to 3 days are available for individual resorts, and there's a Zillertal Superski pass giving access to the whole area, for those staying 4 days or more.

All sounds pretty amazing doesn't it ? And with continued investment into lifts, snowmaking facilities, new pistes, and the apres ski scene, it's set to become even bigger and better in the future. This  also happens to be one of the most easily accessible ski areas in Austria, with snow from December to April in most areas, so there's no excuse not to visit.
