The Cross-Country Area
Fieberbrunn – Cross-country skiing in the heart of the Kitzbühel Alps
Fieberbrunn is located in the midst of the picturesque Kitzbühel Alps. This winter sports resort in Pillersee Valley boasts around 22 kilometres of immaculately groomed trails. And if you should get tired of the three cross-country ski routes – which are groomed for both classic and skating skiing – there are plenty of additional trails extending throughout the rest of the valley.
100 km of trails throughout the Pillersee Valley
Around 100 km of cross-country ski routes criss-cross the Pillersee Valley, and the region’s trails have been awarded the Tyrolean seal of quality on multiple occasions. The varied cross-country skiing options around Fieberbrunn, Hochfilzen, St. Jakob in Haus, St. Ulrich am Pillersee and Waidring are complemented by major cross-country events, like the annual Biathlon World Cup. In addition, amateurs can also compete in open biathlon competitions in the neighbouring towns.
Newcomers to Nordic winter sports can also take lessons at the ski school in Fieberbrunn. Please note that the trails within the valley are fee-paying.
The Most Beautiful Tracks
No. 1: Dandler Loipe (15 km, Easy/Medium)
On the 15-km Dandler Loipe, which is groomed for both types of cross-country skiing, skiers have to circumnavigate 150 vertical metres. The starting points are on the Achenpromenade or at Gasthof Dandler. The first five kilometres are virtually flat and are an ideal place for beginners to hone their skills. From Vormau farm onwards, the trail passes the Baumann and Rain farms until it reaches the Wendepunkt Feistenau. If you wish, you can transfer onto the Europaloipe to Hochfilzen here.
No. 3: Reither Loipe (2 km, Medium)
Classic cross-country skiers can glide through the snowbound landscape on the 2 km Reither Loipe. From the Streuböden valley station/Tirol Camp, the Reither trail passes by several farms until it links with the Dandler Loipe (vertical meters: 50).
No. 6: Weissach Loipe (10 km, Medium)
The 10 km Weissach Loipe is groomed for both classic and skating skiing, and the trail encompasses some 125 vertical meters of ascent. The route leads from the Tragstätt farm via Lackenhof to Granbach, then on to Granbachhof before returning to the starting point. On some sections of the trail, skiers can choose between easier and more difficult variations.
