Powderparadise Hochfügen

Hochfügen’s powder paradise, one of Europe’s best freeriding areas, is located at the entrance to the Zillertal valley. From Hochfügen, this high-Alpine, unsecured area is just a short hike away or easily reached by cable car or lift. A number of reasons explain why Hochfügen is so popular with freeriders from all corners of the globe. Be aware that you ride on your own risk if you go outside the slopes.


Hochfügen’s high-Alpine location from 1,500 to almost 2500 metres above sea level, provides reliable snow until well into spring and allows skiers to enjoy a powder day.

Slopes of any gradient

The opportunities for off-piste skiing are incredibly diverse. Beginners, advanced and pro skiers and snowboarders always find the ideal lines for their level of ability.
