Jay, thanks. The Hintertux glacier is at the end of the Tuxertal. So it's a short drive up the valley ("tal") from Finkenberg and slightly longer from Mayrhofen. There are many places to stay in this valley, but it was hard to find them on the internet.

Like I mentioned, I stayed at Leonhard Stock's Olympia Hotel in Finkenberg:

This was a great place and of course Leonhard and his son knew all about the skiing conditions. He told me that they had just gotten 20cm of snow on the glacier the day before I arrived. I'm not sure what Leonhard will think of a knuckle dragger...err...snowboarder, though

There were several skiers staying at the Olympia when we were there.

On this board, someone else suggested the Sport Hotel Stock (there's a lot of families with the name Stock in Tuxertal):

It was booked when I was planning my trip.

Good luck and I look forward to your trip report!

[a couple posts back, "Kaunternal" should be Kaunertal ]
