Fieberbrunn - PillerseeTal Overview

Fieberbrunn is a typical and rather spread out Tyrolean village in the Pillersee area which has been attracting winter guests for well over a century. The first lift was built here in 1949 and for the past decade or so the resort has been reinventing itself as a mecca for snow freaks - with fun terrain features, a very snowboarder friendly attitude and a lively après ski scene.

The local ski area's top lift height of 2020m is not high compared to many famous Alpine resorts, or the 36km (23 miles) of runs particularly large, the area benefits from legendary snow cover thanks to the local microclimate - which gives it the most average annual snowfall in the Kitzbühel Alps. The resort itself is about 5 minutes away from the ski lifts by ski bus although there is accommodation spread along the road between the two and you can stay on or near the slopes.

The resort is on the Schneewinkl area pass with neighbouring St Johann or Waidring and several other famous resorts linked together by a ski bus service. For those with their own transport and staying a week or more it is also part of the giant Kitzbüheler Alpen ticket which covers a large number of ski areas in the region including those of the Skiwelt and Kitzbühel itself - over 700km (450 miles) of runs in total.

 Notable Ski Runs

The longest possible descent in Fieberbrunn - PillerseeTal is 5km3 miles long.

Skiing in Fieberbrunn - PillerseeTal

For most people the ski day begins with a ride up the mountain on either the gondola Streuboden or the Expo-gondola Doischberg

Beginners may initially stay at the bottom of the slopes in a special beginners area with its own lift in the Skiwies'n Lords area, which also has handy slopeside rentals as well as several cafes to take a rest in.

Most of the terrain is simply fun. The pistes are primarily blues and reds but powder fields all around offer wide expanses to carve up. Experts can head further off piste with a guide in to the trees, there's also a slalom stadium for racers and a several groomed black pistes.

The Expo Gondola, which was added as recently as 2001, is so named because it was originally built to carry people across the 2000 World EXPO at Hanover in Germany. The Leitner built eight-seater was famous at the event because of its bright yellow cabins. The comfortable cabins are large enough for users to carry their skis inside, rather than requiring the traditional gondola requirement of an external rack.

The gondola doubled the route's capacity from 1000 skiers per hour offered by the old T Bar lift it replaced to 2000 skiers and boarders per hour. The lift is 1576m (about a mile) long and has a top speed of five metres (17 feet) per second.

Cross country skiers are well looked after with 40km of trails through the woods and across the snow covered meadows. This links in to a larger network of 110km around the Pillerseetal.

Fieberbrunn - PillerseeTal offers good sking, particularly, for Intermediate skiers.

Parallel Slalom and Halfpipe) in 1998 and the ISF World Pro Tour in '99 including the 'Lords of the Boards,' with many more major events since.
