Hochfügen ski region - Zillertal

The Hochfügen ski region, one of Europe’s best freeriding areas, connects the skiing areas Hochfügen and Hochzillertal.

The skiing areas Hochfügen and Skioptimal Hochzillertal-Kaltenbach were connected several years ago by a lift-link, creating the largest skiing area of the Zillertal valley. Nowadays, the Hochfügen ski region is one of the 10 most snow sure skiing areas in the alpine area - a real winter hot spot! Furthermore it is known as one of Europe’s best freeriding areas thanks to its high-alpine location, the unspoilt slopes and the fast access.

The Hochfügen ski region offers does not only offer perfect conditions for ambitious skiers as well as for those who simply love the pleasure of skiing, but also easy slopes with a gradient under 25%. In the last years new lift facilities have been added: the heated 8-seated Mizunbahn, the Hirschbichl lift and the VIP gondola, a luxury liner among the gondolas, established by a cooperation of Leitner ropeways and BMW Individual. Consequently, a total of 36 lift facilities and 88 km of well-groomed slopes are waiting for you.

Really popular are nighttime skiing, the huge area for beginners as well as the Betterpark Hochzillertal with natural halfpipe, Chill Out Area and own lift facility. Children, however, can look forward to the “Zwergerl Club”, a kindergarten at the mountain station. The “Zillertal Superskipass” is valid in the whole area. By the way: Hochfügen is the home skiing area of skiing star Stephan Eberharter, former World Cup winner and Olympic champion. The illuminated Stephan Eberharter Goldpiste slope, the Kaltenbach valley descent, is named after him.
