One of the resorts in the Austrian ski area of Zillertal Superski is Fugen, a pretty ski resort with accommodation such as bed and breakfast hotels, half board hotels and self catered apartments.
The resort itself offers 40km of cross country skiing, served by 19 lifts, but with access to the whole Zillertal Superski area, around 450km can be explored. The ski areas directly surrounding Fugen are Spieljoch and Hochfugen, and skiing in these areas can be as high as 2500m. With the ski area being quite high, good snow conditions can generally be expected.
With a good selection of restaurants, ranging from traditional Austrian cuisine to perhaps the more favoured international cuisine, the ski resort of Fugen can cater to everyone. The nightlife here is quite laid back and not overly lively, with a few bars and nightclubs dotted around.
If you’re coming to Fugen as a non-skier or simply want some time off from skiing, why not visit one of the thermal healing baths? You can also ice skate, go tobogganing, swim or take a sleigh ride.
Complete beginners will find this a great resort to learn to ski in, as there is a fantastic ski school located on the nursery slopes right by the main gondola. Once you’ve progressed from the nursery slopes, there are lots of easy blue runs to ease you in.
Fugen is particularly well suited to intermediate skiers, as the majority of runs are reds and blues, and the 40km of cross country skiing is great for those looking for slightly more difficulty.
Underneath the Krossbichl chair lift in the Hochzillertal/Kaltenbach area is a brilliant 3km long run, with 500m vertical, a thrill for advanced skiers. There are also some difficult runs on the Spieljoch Mountain not to be missed.
The ski resort of Fugen is a great base for snowboarders, particularly intermediate level boarders. In nearby Spieljoch and Hochfugen there are two fun parks, equipped with jumps and rails, and a great half pipe awaits you in Hochzillertal. There’s also some excellent free riding terrain in the area.
