The festival showcases more than 100 acts in the most unique venues.

From pop-up butcher's shop parties to igloo jam sessions.

It’s a crazy event and certainly one to remember.


4. Fall in love with the huts



4. Visit a typical Austrian alpine hut.

From cute and cosy to stylishly chic, get that mountain feeling in one of Zillertal’s many authentic alpine huts.

Try Schneekarhütte high up in Mayrhofen.

It’s an unusual design and has a menu made from local ingredients.  

The carmelised Kaiserschmarrn is served with roasted plums and fine sweet wine from Tremmel Winery.

5. Freeride for fun  

Zilllertal has more than 65 freeride runs.

There are exciting variants, runs and spectacular long powder slopes between 1,000 and 2,000m of elevation.

Get a guide and ask them to show you Super Bowl.

It’s a south-east facing classic off piste descent.
