"Hintertuxer Gletscher" Hintertux Things to Do Tip by codrutz

Hintertux Things to Do: 26 reviews and 64 photos


The glacier at Hintertux has a depth of 120 meters of ice, in which 61 ski lift supports are affixed. Due to the movement of the glacier - 40 meters per year - the supports are repositioned up to three time per year. The glacier ice is very blue, because all the colours of the rainbow are absorbed by the ice yet only blue hues are reflected, thus the impression of the glacier being blue.
