Want to know what Zillertal valley in the Tirol region of Austria is really like? British journalist and filmer Chris Moran visited in his series of the chairlift chat the Tirolean ski resorts and spoke to visitors and locals on the chairlifts, in the bars and on the slopes to get their take on it.

We give You six reasons why its worthwhile visiting the Zillertal valley:

  • Guaranteed snow on Hintertux glacier, Austria’s only year round skiing area
  • Ski and Party in Mayrhofen, the home of Snowbombing, the world’s NO. 1 Music Festival
  • Laugh and ski at the Altitude Comedy Festival in Mayrhofen
  • Ski in Ski out from the Luxury Chalet Wedelhütte or stylish Kristallhütte at the Hochzillertal area
  • Check out the family ski Zillertal Arena with 43 km blue (easy runs) out of 143 km
  • Enjoy one five resorts, 506 km of pistes and 181 lifts under one ski pass, the Zillertal Superski Pass
