Hochfugen is the satellite ski holiday resort of the valley village of Fugen, at the northern end of the Zillertal Valley. Hochfugen is lift and ski piste linked to the neighbouring Hochzillertal ski area to create a good sized ski area that has a creditable top altitude of nearly 2400m. 1000m or so beneath that is the ski-in, ski-out ski holiday resort of Hochfugen. Unlike many other ski holiday resorts in the Zillertal Valley Hochfugen doesn’t have a great doing there or going on away from the slopes, it is a purpose built high altitude resort with immediate access to the skiing but little else beyond hotels and a large car park. For convenience and snow reliability then Hochfugen is ideal. It is easily possibly for all average intermediate to ski over to the far side of the Hochzillertal area from Hochfugen and back in day and well worth the run out. At the far end of the Hochzillertal is the renowned Kristalhutte that serves exceptional food in superb surroundings. There is off-piste on offer in the Ski Optimal and some steepish piste skiing but generally the Ski Optimal ski region is best suited to intermediates.
