Hintertux has the best glacier in Europe, which has a variety of runs on four faces of the Mountain. It is ideal for the intermediate upwards. It is a favourite for many of the national teams to do out of season training so it is very likely that you will travelling up the chairlift or T bar with the best racers in the world, but don’t let this put you off, the racers don’t take over the mountain and there is plenty of room for all.
