Finkenberg - Ski Area Guide

Finkenberg, Austria

Ski Resort in Tux - Finkenberg, Austrian Alps - 143km of Piste (840m to 3,280m). Rated: 3/5 (from 6 ratings)

A pretty village, with traditional large chalet style hotels, surrounded by the stunning scenery of the Ziller Valley. It shares access to the Penken mountain skiing with Mayrhofen, but is more keen to promote its partnership with Tux, as well as Mayrhofen, in the Ski and Glacierworld 3000 ski area which is mostly lift-linked togrether, except for a Bus to the base of the Tux glacier lifts. It is also on the giant Zillertaler SuperSkipass

Skiing in Finkenberg

The Ski and Glacier World Zillertal 3000 offers wide ranging skiing between 630 and 3250m above sea level - more than a world class lift-served vertical in excess of 2,600m - if not quite skiable in a single descent. However there are trails of up to 12km from the top of the Tux glacier back to the valley.

Thanks to state-of-the-art snow making facilities covering 196 hectares of runs, skiing conditions are guaranteed so long as tempratures are low enough. A free shuttle, operating from early October, takes guests to the Hintertux glacier (14km/nine miles away).

The ascent on the Glacier Bus 3 lift takes you up to 3250m. From here there are plenty of options including the Tuxer Fernerhaus, the Sommerbergalm and then the long runs down the breathtaking 12km (seven miles) descent into the valley.

Throughout the area there are many wide pistes suitable for cruising, ideal for intermediates. There are also specific circuit recommendations, useful for getting to know the largest ski area in the Ziller Valley. These include the glacier circuit with 72km (45 miles) of ski runs with a total of 15,000m in altitude difference. This trail runs from the Eggalm to the sunny Rastkogel plateau, and on to the breathtakingly panoramic descent.

Advanced skiers and boarders will enjoy the trails beneath the pylons of the Schneekar chair where the steep rolling piste provides a good challenge. The Harakiri descent is the steepest groomed piste in Austria and is only recommended for really excellent riders. There are also very good free-ride opportunities available here.

Three permanent, free race-tracks with timers provide an excellent opportunity for challenging family or friends.

The mountains around Finkenberg are also a paradise for ski mountaineers. Enthusists can walk through secluded forests and long slopes past quaint mountain huts all the way up to the peaks. Then there is the unique feeling of floating down virgin powder runs. Finkenberg's mountain guides can help guests safely discover the beauty of this experience.

If that sounds too much like hard work there are more than thirty rustic ski huts, on-mountain inns and après-ski bars in the area to check out.

Snowboarding in Finkenberg

The Burton Park is located by the Sunjet quad with various jumps, rails, half pipe and the banked slalom challenge both snowboarders and free skiers. There's also a chill out zone.

The Burton Park also has a special beginners' line with small jumps and rails for funpark beginners to try out.

Finkenberg Aprés Ski

There are two great pubs and après-ski bars where you can celebrate until the small hours. Firstly the Laterndlpub often has live acts and offers an apres ski bus from the pub to the landlords in Finkenberg.

The Finkennest is like a theme bar with Tequila night on Mondays, Happy hours on Tuesdays, table dancing on other nights and so on.
