Hochfilzen / PillerseeTal in the Kitzbüheler Alpen offers something for everyone, from those who enjoy Alpine skiing to cross country.Over 150km of prepared trails which one can enjoy the snowy landscape.Who ever wishes to leave the marked trails can then go on a tour using snow-shoes (guided tours also possible).
Ski-touring is the newest trend.Instead of using the ski lifts, well marked routes make the climb easier, at the top you will find Skihutte and a view as reward for the climb up, which can only be got from this altitude. The descent can also be made on the normal piste. The ski area Buchensteinwand has started the trend "Touring ski ticket", where ski tourers can then enjoy normal skiing using the lifts after climbing up.
Whoever wants a little "kick" away from the piste should try a tobogganing evening in Hochfilzen at the Hoametzlhütte.
