Ski area Hochfügen-Hochzillertal/Spieljoch

With the "Zillertaler Superskipass" you can choose from 530 kilometres of piste in the Zillertal Arena, by the Mayrhofen lifts, in the Ski and Gletscherwelt Zillertal 3000, in the ski area Hochzillertal – Hochfügen – Spieljoch, and the Wildkogel-Arena at Bramberg. The ski areas are all excellently linked to one another by a free train and bus shuttle. Since a few years, the Zillertal Arena offers free-of-charge Wi-Fi in all of its ski areas! In other words, not only can you enjoy the white bliss and the sun, but also share your latest experiences and highlights directly with your loved ones at home (see ski region).

Fügen itself offers skiing enjoyment in two connected ski areas: the Spieljoch area and Hochfügen/Hochzillertal area. The valley station of Hochfügen/Hochzillertal can be reached by ski bus from Fügen and is located at an altitude of 1,500 m, guaranteeing snow until the end of April. The upper valley is great for skiers seeking a ski area for all ability levels. The snow park with the half-pipe, ensures fun and action for boarders as well! Thanks to the connection between Hochfügen and Hochzillertal, there now are a total 90 km of diverse pistes (incl. ski routes), among them a lit valley descend, and 39 lifts available.

The Spieljoch ski area offers a further 17 kilometres of excellently prepared pistes and 3,5 km ski routes, a total of 10 lifts and a "magic carpet" conveyor lift for the little ones’ "first steps" in the snow. Dreamy deep snow slopes on the Geolsalm and the 7 km long run into the valley to Fügen elicit excitement from even the ablest of ski fans. Just to give you a taste of the coming peak-to-peak ski area connection between Hochzillertal-Hochfügen and Spieljoch, of which should be completed in time for the 2019/2020 winter season, an hourly ski bus connection has already been set in place for this coming winter season, offering a connection between the valley station of the Spieljoch in Fügen and Kaltenbach in Hochzillertal.

Night skiing Fügen

Just like in many other ski areas in Austria, there also is a diverse offer of night skiing possibilities in Zillertal. The ski area Hochfügen-Hochzillertal opens 2 pistes for skiing until night-time: In the local ski area of Fügen, the 5 km "Stephan-Eberharter-Goldpiste" is illuminated once per week. The valley run is equipped with floodlights and leads from the middle station to the valley station of Hochzillertal mountain railway in Kaltenbach. From January until March, night owls can have fun on the red piste, which can be covered with artificial snow, during the extended operation times until 22:00. From Fügen you can reach the night ski area with the free ski bus.

Furthermore, a floodlit night ski piste can also be found at the Lamark lifts in Hochfügen. An evening ski show is presented on several dates here.

Après ski Fügen

In comparison with other lesser-known resorts in the Zillertal, Fügen is truly "the place to be". The huts invite you in for refreshment, e.g. the rustic "Schihütte" at the Spieljoch valley run. Once in the valley, the après ski really sets off: whether under an umbrella or in the bars, skiers party, dance and flirt for all they're worth. Later in the evening, the party moves into the many bars and clubs or one of the four discos.

In the evening, toboggan races by torchlight are offered, or perhaps go on a romantic walk by lantern light. You can also spoil yourself in the many restaurants and taverns of the village. A culinary highlight of the ski area Kaltenbach-Hochzillertal are the crystal huts, which can be found in the mountain station Kristall-Express at an altitude of 2,150 m and offer you young, creative cuisine at attractive prices. Fresh, regional products are served. In the inner huts, you can find an open fireplace as well as quaint parlours, and nice weather providing, a bar-adjacent sun terrace with lounge chairs and water beds can be enjoyed. In addition, since the winter season 2013/2014, a wine cellar has been added.

Those who can't be parted from their skis in the evening simply head to the flood-lit piste for some night skiing! If you still have enough energy after that, the "Erlebnistherme Zillertal" is a must-visit! Here you can find a varied children's area with Austria's longest adventure slide (133 m), as well as a modern spa and sauna area.

Next to the thermal bath you can find an ice rink that organises an ice disco on a regular basis. In Fügen and the surrounding areas, you can also choose between various toboggan runs, some of which are lit in the evening. Winter hikes and relaxing horse-drawn carriage rides round off the offer perfectly.

Snowpark: Snowpark Betterpark Fügen

The "Betterpark" Hochzilltertal is located in close proximity to the "Schnee Express" 8-person chairlift at an altitude between 2,050 - 2,120 m in the ski area Hochzillertal-Hochfügen.

The park-own lift takes you comfortably and directly to the top, so that you can move over to the next ride. Three lines with different levels of difficulty can be found in the park, where beginners, intermediates and pros can test their talent on kickers and other obstacles. An additional highlight is the jib line at the foot of the park, where there various boxes and rails to use. The new "Snowpark Lamark" near the Lamark lift was introduced in December 2016, and is composed of three lines with 13 elements, of which caters to all levels of difficulty and provides plenty of fun!

The chill area with container, sun bed and the perfect sound system invites you after a long freestyle day or when taking a break. Apart from the "Betterpark" fun and freestyle fans will find much more snow parks to let off steam in the entire Zillertal, e.g. in Mayrhofen, Gerlos or at the Hintertux glacier.
