The glacier is serviced by increasingly high-tech lifts including Glacier Bus 3 with 24 person cabins capable of uplifting 3000 skiers per hour from the bottom to the top of the glacier. There are five villages in the valley beneath the glacier, which is regarded by many as having the best summer skiing in the world and is one of the few centres open for snow spoprts 365 days per year. The largest is Lanersbach, where most of the facilities are based. The little village of Hintertux itself, at the head of the valley, has thermal springs. The lifts are directly at the huge day-visitors car-park. Apart from skiing there are motre than 250 km of hiking trails and Natursport Tirol offers active sports like paragliding, canyoning, flying fox and caving.

Skiing in Tux - Finkenberg

There are nearly 230km (145 miles) of ski runs in the joined Tux and Finkenberg ski areas. - with about a third around Lanersbach and Vorderlanersbach and the remainder on the slopes and glacier at Hintertux. More than 20 lifts make short work of the queues, uplifting more than 30,000 skiers per hour.

The resort is part of the Ski and Glacier World Zillertal 3000 lift linked pass with Finkenberg and Mayrhofen, although a bus journey is required through the Tux valley to make up the link to the glacier.

Skiing from the door is a no-no but the resort is included in the Zillertal Super Pass which gives the skier a wonderland of nearly 640 kms (400 miles) of pistes. The management keeps the area beautifully groomed with its arsenal of snow canons and piste machines.

Like most of Zillertal, Tux - Finkenberg is really a paradise for intermediates, with many kilometres of excellent, laid-back trails. However, there is a real shortage of nursery slopes, especially when snow is scarce and, for the expert, there is little to quicken the heart. Off-piste skiing can be good when there is a lot of new snow but the dangers of skiing off the beaten track on glaciers are very real - who wants to end their holiday falling down a crevasse? Local guides are available if you want to explore.

The various ski schools at Tux - Finkenberg are excellent, teaching all standards of skiing and snow boarding.
