Homeland of Guides - Zillertal - Chris Garber
This trip is also part of the "Homeland of Guides" campaign. Our longtime friend and mountain guide Chris Garber knows the most beautiful spots in his valley. These days he will be your local and guide you to the most beautiful peaks and the most interesting descents in his wonderful region ...
...here we go!
The next four days are to explore the different freeride areas in Zillertal and we will pick the the best option for the respective day. Thanks to the Zillertal Super Ski Pass, nothing stands in the way of unlimited freedom. Chris would call the endless descents from the Hintertux Glacier with 1,800 m of pure powder fun as one of the highlights.
Some wonderful descents are reached with short ascents. This is mostly rewarded with first lines in untouched powder snow. There are also breathtaking descents in a huge mountain landscape far away from the crowds. Often we ski down into a remote valley where a taxi will pick us up at the end of the day. If you want to discover the secret corners of the Zillertal, this trip with Chris is the right choice for you.
The Naturresort Rissbacherhof is a family-run hotel in a quiet, sunny location in the romantic town of Stumm in the Zillertal and is an ideal starting point for the next 4 days. Sauna and panoramic whirlpool provide the necessary relaxation after skiing. We are also spoiled with culinary delights, the chef attaches great importance to quality. Meat, sausage and bacon come from their own farm. What is not produced in-house is bought regionally and in organic quality whenever possible.
