Buchensteinwand skiing area - Pillersee Tal

The Bergbahn Pillersee lift facility takes you up to the mountain station Buchensteinwand at 1,456 m a.s.l. in a few minutes.

The Buchensteinwand, a mountain ridge and famous viewpoint in the Pillersee Valley, welcomes you in winter with a small skiing area, which is split on the villages of St. Ulrich am Pillersee, St. Jakob in Haus and Hochfilzen. 22 km of slopes for all levels of difficulty, gorgeous deep snow slopes and downhill runs reach until the peak of the 1,456 m high “Buach”, like the locals call their ridge. At the mountain station you enjoy a fantastic view on the High Tauern, Wilder Kaiser, Loferer and Leoganger mountain chains as well as on the Waidringer Steinplatte mountain.

The little guests can look forward to the Bobo Kids Park at the valley station of the chairlift. With its 30,000 sqm and plenty of attractions it is the biggest Bobo Kids Park throughout Tyrol! Very popular are also the permanent race track and of course the mountain huts and restaurants in the skiing area, which invite you to the famous Après Ski. New is the 29.60 m high Jakobskreuz with its view platforms, the biggest accessible summit cross worldwide (open also in winter).

The Buchensteinwand skiing area is connected with the big 3-Country Leisure Arena (formerly known as Schneewinkel), which combines eight skiing areas in North Tyrol, Salzburg and Bavaria and offers approx. 60 km of well-groomed slopes. The “Tyrol Snow Card” and the “Kitzbühel Alps AllStarCard” are also valid in the Buchensteinwand skiing area. Have fun!
