This is a very good ski area but certainly not my favourite in this valley. Often too many people and less nice slopes.

Easy to use, super organized and no major queues, even at peak times. Great hangers inside the car for skis. You can use the cars in winter, even if you’re not skiing, lovely winter trails at the top and amazing scenery. Can’t compare prices with...More

The lift is great and has room for about 15 people, the queues aren’t talking at all in the morning and it takes just 13 minutes to get to the top.

I rode their cablecar to the top with my bicycle, and spent a great day riding down the mountain on country roads to a nearby valley; with lunch at a restaurant on the way down. Highly recommended!

You can do two lifts to get the the very top where the good hiking trails are. Plenty of restaurants at both stops to choose from. Views are awesome!

Don't know about parking because we were staying in Mayrhofen and walked but there was no snow at all in July, so I doubt there would be in October. The Hintertux Glacier has snow 365 days a year. We went there by bus from... More
