The Ski Resort
The Spieljoch in Fügen is perfect for all advanced pleasure skiers. Almost all slopes are marked in red. Although there are no special challenges at the Spieljoch, there are many comfortable slopes for a relaxed day's skiing. If this is not enough for you, you can take advantage of the connection to the Hochzillertal and Hochfügen ski areas, where there are another 90 kilometres of pistes available.
From the valley station in Fügen, you first take the Spieljochbahn up to the 1,865-metre-high mountain station. In order to reach most of the slopes, you then have to take the drag lift to the Onkeljoch. From here you can take the piste along the Geols chairlift and take it back up to the Onkeljoch. There is also a funslope, a snowpark and a race track for training and ski races. The two Onkeljoch runs 1 and 1b take you to the valley station of the Onkeljoch chairlift. From there you can also return to Fügen via the valley descent. By the way, this is the longest snow-covered downhill run in the Zillertal.
The only ski run marked blue in the ski area is the Möslift descent. However, you can only reach it if you have already skied the red marked slopes before. For absolute beginners there is a special ski school area with drag lifts and simple practice slopes opposite the valley station in Fügen.
