Mt. Buchensteinwand houses a small skiing area, which is split on St. Ulrich am Pillersee, St. Jakob in Haus and Hochfilzen.
The Pillersee Cable Car takes you up to the Buchensteinwand, a mountain ridge and famous viewpoint in the Pillersee Valley, in a few minutes. There are 21 km of slopes, gorgeous deep snow slopes and downhill runs which start on the peak of the 1,456 m high "Buach" - like the locals call their ridge - and lead down to St. Ulrich am Pillersee, St. Jakob in Haus and Hochfilzen.
Arrived at the Buchensteinwand mountain station, you may enjoy the fantastic view on the High Tauern, Mt. Wilder Kaiser, the Loferer and Leoganger mountain chains, and Mt. Steinplatte. Very popular are the natural snow downhill run, the permanent race track, and of course the ski huts in the skiing area. Some years ago, the Jakobskreuz summit cross with its viewing platforms has been realised, with its 29.60 metres the highest accessible summit cross worldwide.
The area of the valley station of the chairlift, however, is a paradise for children. There's the 30,000 sqm large Bobo Kids Park with plenty of attractions, the largest Bobo Kids Park throughout Tyrol. The Buchensteinwand Skiing Area is one of the eight skiing areas of the 3 Country Leisure Arena which includes - as mentioned above - eight areas between North Tyrol, Salzburg and Bavaria.
