Altitude: 1246 Meters

Gerlos in short

  • A Dutch enclave with an Austrian touch
  • Wide slopes for beginners and long ones for advanced skiers
  • Practice area with pleasant terraces in the centre
  • Après-Ski, with capital letters

Skiers who like to party should at least consider the ski resort of Gerlos. In terms of après-ski Gerlos is peerless and thanks to the favourable central location in Zillertal Arena, by day too let’s just say a few things are possible! From here skiers can head in different directions and even ski towards the different villages of Zillertal Arena. Being located amidst the ski slopes makes the village slightly less accessible which means snow chains are often necessary.

Believe it or not, summer is a busy time for many ski resorts. Even when the Alps aren't covered in snow, there is plenty to do: lifts, piste bashers, and snow cannons must all be inspected and fixed where necessary, and preparations must be made for the upcoming ski season. Some ski resorts take advantage of the ski pistes being closed to instal new lifts! Here you'll find a quick overview of the major new lifts that will be inaugurated for the 2019/20 ski season....
