Mayrhofen provides easy access to year-round skiing on the Hintertuxer Gletscher; the cable car is an attraction in itself, gliding above sheer cliff faces and jagged peaks to the tip of the ice-blue glacier. The sundeck at 3250m affords phenomenal views of the Tuxer Alps and, on clear days, Grossglockner, the Dolomites and Zugspitze. From Christmas until early May, a free bus shuttles skiers from Mayrhofen to the glacier (included in the ski pass).
