This resort has one of the best glaciers inthe world which is open in summer as well as winter. The resort is made up of a small collection of hotels and guest houses. The valley has broad appeal since the lower slopes of above Lanersback and its nearby twin Vorderlanersbach were linked by fast new lifts with those above Mayerhofen and Finkenberg down in the Zillertal, to form a good sized circuit. The glacier is a 20 minute bus ride away. The resort has invested in new lifts and has some good off piste opportunities.
