Hintertux might be, boarding on a glacier. Lots of snow here, still cold in Europe but I doubt the regular hills/mountains will still maintain to have snow in May.I'm traveling to Munich at in May and want to bring my board and hit some snow.
Are there any places that are still open around that time that's doable for a weekend trip?
I live in Prague, a friend of mine has a place in Kitzbuhel and I met up with him there back in January to do some skiing. I took the bus to Munich, which was a pain but then the train from Munich to Kitz was great. I'm not sure if you can get a train from Munich all the way to Hintertux but I'm sure theres a way. Just keep in mind, depending on the day you choose your trip, it'll either be easier or more difficult with transfers. I got lucky and only had to transfer to another train in Worgl but if I went a day earlier or a different time I'd have to change trains like 3 or 4 times so you end up pin balling back and forth. Check the DB website bahn.com and book your ticket on there as well.Thanks for the suggestions!
I was looking at Zermatt as well but it seems like a bit far (6 hour drive). I'll still see if I can visit, but Hintertux seems very doable. It's so close that I can possibly do a day trip.
I may just rent a car and drive there. It's only 175km. I can even drive there and back on the same day if I had to.Train station Jenbach - stop for all express trains, Jenbach - Mayrhofen with the Zillertalbahn, from Mayrhofen with the public (Post) bus to Hintertux.
This doesn't sound that great, but it's close enough to where I'll be staying that I still have to go :thumbsup:Rather hardpack, flat blues. I try to avoid the glacier runs if I'm in Zermatt. The same on glacier in Saas Fee. Guess, it's common that glacier slopes are flat cause on steeps you'd have crevasses... (?)
Guess, in May also could be slushy. Was in Saas Fee in June once, slush surfing in t-shirt. Funny for one day. Don't forget the proper waxThis doesn't sound that great, but it's close enough to where I'll be staying that I still have to go :thumbsup:
