Zillertal - endless skiing, incredible altitudes
508 kilometres of perfectly prepared ski slopes offer a variety of fantastic downhill runs for every taste and fitness level, ranging from wide pistes with leisurely gradients to demanding routes that push even experienced skiers to their limits. The Zillertal Superskipass is an all-in-one ticket which connects 179 ski lifts. Zillertal’s biggest advantage is the size of its skiing areas and the numerous options this provides. Altitudes generally start from about 2,000 meters and range up to 3,250 metres, guaranteeing snow all through the winter season and fun for the whole family, as the special areas for beginners and children are located at the highest summit lift stations. But that's not all! There’s something for everyone here – with large funparks, permanent racing and high-speed runs, easily accessible freeriding areas, ski kindergartens and numerous ski lodges.
One special highlight is early morning skiing: Early birds can already enjoy their first runs down freshly-prepared ski slopes while other guests are still asleep or having breakfast. The gondola lifts in the Hochzillertal ski area start operating at 7.30 a.m., and the numerous lodges in the ski areas give you a further chance of being first on the piste – just get out of bed and onto your skis and enjoy the slopes, which are still practically deserted. After this, you will enjoy your breakfast even more!
The newly-built 10-seater Dorfbahn gondola lift in Gerlos is a milestone construction and a second lift for providing comfortable transport to the skiing areas. The 3-storey building at the valley station in the centre of Gerlos houses a sports shop and a ski rental outlet and also provides modern ski storage and covered parking. The Hochfügen skiing area in the lower Zillertal now also provides the new 6-seater Waidoffen chairlift, which adds to your skiing enjoyment. This new lift features integrated seat heating and ultra-light weather protection hoods, auto-lock child-safety system and a gentle exit gradient.
Skiing in the Zillertal mountains is not just about the best ski slopes: A stop with friends on one of the spacious sun terraces or in one of the numerous award-winning lodges will make your day of skiing complete. Culinary delights created from natural local products will top up your energy reserves and prepare you for the next hours of skiing fun. On the menu, you will find Zillertal specialities as well as new creations inspired by the concept of modern, light cuisine. Whether offering top-class international gastronomy or high-quality Tyrolean cuisine, Zillertal chefs all place special emphasis on fresh, local products and attach great importance to using seasonal ingredients. Skiing and culinary delights are thus combined to provide a very special menu for real connoisseurs. The world-famous Zillertal hospitality further adds to the high reputation of gastronomy in Zillertal.
