The absolute finest ski descents in one of Austria's most famous valleys!
Picking only 10 descents from the 1000s of possibilities in the Zillertal is a tricky assignment - but someone's got to do it! The valley is home to a lifetime's worth of adventures on skis, foot and bikes but if you've only got a few winter days - rather than a few decades - to explore, these routes are the ones to do.
The Zillertal is probably best known for being home to Mayrhofen - a truly legendary ski town for good reason - and home to this little lot - https://fatmap.com/guidebooks/4188/the-best-freeride-lines-in-mayrhofen.
Even further down the valley is Hintertux - one of the only 2 resorts in the World (the other being Zermatt - https://fatmap.com/guidebooks/13004/freeride-beneath-the-matterhorn-:-zermatt's-king-lines) which offers skiing 365 days per year - and is and a great place for some high altitude, mellow freeriding - https://fatmap.com/guidebooks/4189/high-mountain-freeride-adventures-in-hintertux.
Perhaps the least known of the valley's resorts is Hochfügen but for those in the know (which now includes you - https://fatmap.com/guidebooks/4076/hochfugen's-most-epic-freeride-lines) it's arguably the best off-piste ski area in Zillertal.
Suffice to say that if you make it to the Zillertal, you won't be short of ski adventures, whatever the weather and wherever you go!
