This morning after some trial and error of two wrong bus stops we finally caught the last ski bus from Mayhofen up the valley to the Hintertux ski area. This is the highest ski area in the Zillertal - and in most of Austria for that matter! Much of the upper ski area is actually on top of a glacier. As we rode up the three gondolas to the 3250m (10,663 ft) summit of the ski area, the views got more and more astounding - overlooking an ocean of rugged peaks as far as the eye can see in every direction. We were enamored with the ski area too, with its wide groomers and plethora of off-piste powder (even three days after the last storm). I'm sure we will be back here - a lot!
