“Excellent ski area for beginning and medium ski”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

Hochfugen is one of the very few ski areas that allows you to go to the very top (2300+ meter), and go all the way down on blue tracks. So ideal for the beginner and intermediate ski enthusiast.
Can get very busy during the holidays. Waiting time at the ski lifts is max 20 minutes (but almost all the time less than 5), so that's quite acceptable. Quality of the slopes is very good (we did were in luck, with from time to time a few new centimeters snow).
My wife had a ski accident, and although it's not something you want to thing about, but the intervention was clearly well organised and very professional, medical intervention within 20 minutes, and helicopter rescue less then 10 minutes later.

“The Hochfugen area is a must visit when in Fugen--summer or winter.”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

The nature scenery in Hochfugen is very special. The nature scenery and view of Zillertal from the top of the mountains are very beautiful. It is a steep climb by car and should be done carefull. It must be added it is not dangerous but drivers should not be in a hurry due to the road getting narror at times.

“Superb ski resort”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

We have been coming to the Zillertal for 3 years now and skied mostly at Fugen/Hochfugen (access by gondola from Kaltenbach). This is a very nice area, with great slopes and usually no lines. Difficulty varies from bunny slopes to moderately challenging, nothing really extreme, which suits us just fine.

The one thing it does not have is extreme alpine panorama that you would find in places like Zermatt. The views in Hochfugen are great (I took tons of pictures!) but the highest point is only about 2500m (no glacier views). Still, it is a wonderful place and we fully intend to come back next year.
