Visitor Reviews of Hochzillertal-Kaltenbach
Mark Gunston from Austria writes:
I have only skied Hochzillertal at the end of the season and have been very impressed by the fast lifts and amount of skiing above 1700 metres. Late season the gondola starts at 7.30 am. I skied dry untracked powder for 4 hours on a sunny Saturday in late April and the slopes were empty.
I am surprised by other reviewers comments saying the off-piste is limited as I thought the amount available without having to trek was incredible. I am guessing that, because of it's proximity to the Inn Valley, it gets very busy after a snowfall during the main season and gets tracked out very quickly.
The disadvantage with the new fat skis is that any intermediate can now make turns in powder, so the off-piste areas are much busier than a few years ago.
In summary, Hochzillertal is an amazing resort to ski off-piste after a dump of snow in late season.
