Skiing is usually possible throughout the year in the glacier ski area Hintertuxer Gletscher. The Hintertuxer Gletscher constitutes of the Gefrorene-Wand-Keeses (also Tuxer Ferner) as well as the neighbouring Riepenkeeses in the background of the Tuxertal, a tributary valley of the Zillertal. Both glaciers can be easily accessed with modern lifts or skyrides. The highest elevation of the ski area reaches up to an altitude of 3250 m to the saddle between the summits of the Gefrorene-Wand. The glacier ski area Hintertuxer Gletscher is well known for the reliable snow conditions and there are skiing schools for children and beginners.
