Skiing in Zillertal
Winter vacation in Ried in Zillertal
During the winter, Mari Pop is a perfectly located base camp: The ski resort Kaltenbach – Hochzillertal / Hochfügen with 90 km of slopes is just a stone’s throw away – or rather a short bus ride away. Because our hotel is right in the middle of the Zillertal valley, the other ski areas are also close by: test the slopes at over 3,000 meters on the Hintertux Glacier or put your courage on test on one of the steepest slopes in Austria, the “Harakiri” in Mayrhofen.
If you are looking for more variety, you can swap your alpine skis for cross-country skis and head to the trails from Ried. Or you can grab a sled and try one of the six toboggan runs in our region Fügen-Kaltenbach. For those who are looking for a true nature experience, the winter hiking trails are the best option: 50 kilometers of groomed trails criss-cross the landscape.
And what if it storms and snows? Real winter fans would say: “Bad weather does not exist”. Nevertheless, Zillertal offers exciting alternatives for those not-so-hard-core individuals when the weather gets unpleasant: the swimming pool in Fügen and a modern climbing center in the nearby village Aschau offer alternative for pistes and cross-country trails.
