Zillertal Arena – Zillertal's largest ski resort

Zillertal is one of the most popular holiday regions in Austria. Between Hochzillertal-Hochfügen (Spieljoch is also part of Hochzillertal since 2016), Zillertal Arena, Mayrhofen, and Hintertux Glacier, guests get to choose from four great ski resorts. Zillertal Arena is Zillertal's largest ski resort, boasting 143 kilometres (89 miles) of slopes and 52 lifts (state: March 2016). A quick overview of Zillertal Arena's benefits gives it away: this ski resort gets top scores in our review.

  • Generous free parking at all base stations makes for a comfortable start of your ski day.
  • Efficient conveyor lifts make idle time a rarity at Gerlos and Zell am Ziller.
  • A large portion of the lifts are modern chairs with weatherproof caps.
  • Apart from the valley run to Zell, nearly all slopes are relatively snow-proof, due to an elevation of 1,300 metres (4,265 ft)

The variety of cosy Tyrolean restaurants, the three terrain parks (including a half-pipe), and the good service stood out in particular at Zillertal Arena. But the ski resort doesn't come off badly in any of the other categories either.

Last visit to the Zillertal
Actually quite a nice and large ski area but on 2 out of 6 days you couldn't ski, there was no refund. (Almost all lifts were closed)The transfer to other areas is just bad. We were stranded becau... Read complete review

Customer unfriendly
Very inflexible at the Isskogelbahn in Gerlos. They let you go through the turnstile with a five-person pedestrian ticket and then don't let you on because there's supposedly too much wind at the t... Read complete review

Zillertal, better not visit again
Actually a reasonable ski resort. Unfortunately, guests are treated badly. It already starts with the fact that vacationers may only use a road on which one is in a heavy traffic jam. Locals are al... Read complete review

Only trouble with the online ski pass and poorly informed
Of 5 ski passes purchased online, only 3 worked reliably. In one case the problem could be solved at the checkout, in the other case a pass had to be purchased at the checkout. In itself, no proble... Read complete review

Top ski resort! For young and old, everything here!
The area is very family friendly and just huge. There is a totally varied range of slopes and gorgeous panoramas. Recommended for everyone, beginners and advanced, families and freeriders!

Super ski resort with top snow security
The ski area scores with great piste and absolute guaranteed snow. For walkers, Gerlos is excellent due to his high altitude. Unfortunately, Gerlos loses the typical "Tyrolean charm" from year to y... Read complete review

Our children are enthusiastic
We have been driving in a silver holiday apartment for several years. From there we start directly in the Zillertal arena. Our children love it and now, as teenagers, explore the ski resort alone. You're going pretty well.

Large and varied
There is much to see in the Zillertal arena. I liked it best in Gerlos and King's Guide. Zell am Ziller had me too many red slopes. I like blue, dear. Cabins and food were great everywhere!!

Eldorado for advanced Riders
The biggest ski resort in the beautiful Zillertal Valley will make the heart of the sporty skiers beat faster, who on the 215 piste kilometres can find enough variety to spend one or more great ski... Read complete review
