The village of Hochfügen is located at the beginning of the Zillertal. Together with the village of Fügen (545 meters) it forms an ideal combination: a modern and snow-sure ski area in Hochfügen, where everything is focused on skiing combined with a pleasant après-ski in Fügen.
From Hochfügen there are several lifts that will bring you into the ski area. Through the Wedelexpress, the ski area of Hochfügen is connected to Hochzillertal-Kaltenbach, giving you 92 km of continuous slopes. The ski area of Hochfügen-Hochzillertal is unfortunately not connected to the Spieljoch ski area in Fügen, but you have access to both areas with one ski pass.
