Hochzillertal is ideal for beginners with fabulous long gentle green graded slopes on which to get started. The numerous long and wide blue runs all over the mountain provide the perfect environment for beginners to improve quickly. Achieving the ability and confidence to slide down a red run by the end of one week is a distinct possibility here.

Well where shall we go today? That will be your only problem - deciding where to go. Every area is worth visiting and all you have to do is work out how to get there. The frequent bus and train services should make this relatively easy.

This area for its size does not offer up too many black runs but what it does have is lots of easily accessible off-piste. The Penken has plenty of tree skiing as does Gerlos and Zell am Ziller. Kaltenbach (Hochzillertal) and Hochfugen both have easily accessible off-piste and so does the Hintertux Glacier which really should only be attempted with a guide.

The slopes above Kaltenbach provide some excellent natural hits for freestylers. There is a gully off the edge of one piste in particular that forms a natural half pipe in certain conditions. A man made park and half pipe, short but with high walls is found near the top gondola station.
