Hochfügen ski resort scores top marks in international tests

For years, the Hochfügen ski resort, either alone or together with our neighbouring ski resort SKi-optimal Hochzillertal, has regularly been coming out on top of international comparisons conducted by testers from independent platforms. However, not ones to rest on our laurels, we are constantly striving to further develop our ski and holiday resort in the Zillertal valley to provide our guests with even more skiing and holiday adventures.
