@mountainaddict, we are here in August again so if there is a cold spell I may give it a go. Was v.expensive for the day pass for a family of 4 though.
Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

We were up on the Hintertux yesterday (29th May) with the kids. It was 30 degrees in the valley, 10 degrees at the top and around 18 degrees at Tuxer Fernerhaus. Good snow cover all the way down to Tuxer Fernerhaus, was great until around lunch time when the last 100m became very heavy. But at the top it was lovely all day. Quite a bit still open even though the ski racing teams used a fair bit of the top section. Almost no punters on the slopes so we had the rest to ourselves :) We found best conditions all day around the Kaserer side where we literally saw no one. First time up there this late in the season so first time I had seen the glacier protection in action. The tech team were laying out the reglective carpet over large sections including the main piste down to Tuxer Ferenerhaus and also a few smaller sections near the bottom of posts 8 and 8a. They were rolling out the carpet in huge sheets. Sad to see but glad they are taking action. Couldn't see any crevasses but we stayed in piste all day (all the ski routes from the top closed anyway). If I can work out how to post photos from Snowmedia using my iPhone to here...I will post some pics.

@Ravelin, Mayrhofen has street party and fireworks at NY. Ok so train station end means you will need the bus to get to lifts. But it's a quieter end and nicer IMHO. Out of interest, how does it work with a motor home, can you unhook each day to drive to different areas? Or is that too much hassle each day? Zell is 5 mins drive, Glacier 30 mins.
And they're a friendly bunch.

@Ravelin, the ski bus service in Mayrhofen is excellent, no need to walk in boots. Alternatively pay for a deposit locker at the lift base station, this is our preferred option and it works well. Intersport and the Penken is great. Lots of skiing choice in the Zillertal so a great option. Where is the campsite in comparison to the town? Which end?
You know it makes sense.

We are in Zillertal at the end of May so hope to be able to get the family up to Hintertux for a couple of days (or mornings depending on conditions). Just hope this recent snow stays around to allow decent km up there.

The only time in recent years we have used TOs was to ensure decent child care (Esprit and VIP). Otherwise we much prefer DIY. Long coach trips (often with people I would not choose to spend time with) and delays caused by waiting for several flights to arrive before said coach departs really annoys me. Also the obligatory "welcome meetings" and other crap is not my thing. Jumping in a car and going to different places is for me a big attraction to DIY. But I am an antisocial git so there you are. Horses for courses?

@Grizzler, exactly what I plan to do last week of May! Maybe some biking,swimming or cycling in the PM. I understand in the summer it's only 3 or 4 runs open but I am hoping they have a good May and some more is still open May/June. Locals said season pass lasts until end of May at Hintertux.

@SkiFrogger, I know what you mean. Was just out in the main street with my kids for supper and narrowly avoided a very drunken scouse trying to punch someone. Clearly forgotten the party goes on all night. My wife asked for the bill and we made a quick exit. I think we will eat outside of town the next few nights. For skiing I doubt most of the revellers will ski at all so Penken probably ok. Snow holding up ok on north facing slopes and Rastkogel areas. We want up to glacier yesterday, snow was great but very windy. Today we went to Zell which was excellent (many north facing slopes) and had a great time. Hardly anyone on pistes. 10 mins from Mayrhofen. Well worth a day or two. Weather may close in tomorrow afternoon but we will head up to glacier again in the AM. I haven't been over to Fugen yet so not sure how it's holding up.
Otherwise you'll just go on seeing the one name:

Spent the day up at Hintertux today. Wonderful conditions. Quiet pistes. Up high it was that lovely chalky snow. Great day.

Have been skiing in Mayrhofen for last couple of days. Following the sun seems to be the best strategy. Over to the top of the tux 150 in the morning and doing the runs down to Rastkogel in the AM. Lovely piste conditions up there. Then mainly on the north facing slopes to either side of the Harikiri in the PM which seems to remain in good condition. Slush on south facing slopes and not worth trying from 11am onwards. Resort is v.quiet Having a great time and kids love the sun :D

@Pruman, thank you. Sounds typical spring conditions then. Tuesday weather is looking wet up to 2000.... I think I am stuck on Penken etc for first few days so hope it's not too busy / cut up certainly doesn't look like it will freeze overnight for a few days at least.

This was taken at the end of May last year. "Facilities" had just opened at the beginning of the season. During the season you ski just on the other side of the window.
