In the Hochzillertal ski area, winter sports enthusiasts can make their turns on 90 kilometres of pistes. From beginners to experts, everyone will find the right slopes for themselves here.

A good 29 kilometres of downhill runs are marked in blue and are ideal for beginners and those returning to the sport. The 42 kilometres of medium-difficulty pistes offer pure piste fun for advanced skiers. Advanced skiers feel particularly at home on the 13 kilometres of black pistes. You can also try out the permanent slalom slope. Freeride and powder fans will find almost ten kilometres of routes and many off-piste possibilities in the ski area. A total of 39 lifts take the winter sports enthusiasts up to over 2,350 metres. The pistes are guaranteed snow thanks to the latest snow-making equipment.

In Bobo's children's club and the children's park with magic carpet, wave track and play tent, the kids can take their first turns. They are supported by the competent teams of the local ski schools. The children's restaurant is open for lunch. Families are guaranteed to find fun in Kidsworld in the mountain station 2, where there is even a children's cinema in addition to play areas. The Zwergerl Club offers full-day care for children. The absolute highlight of every ski course is of course the children's ski race.

Freestylers can prove their talent in the Bretterpark Hochzillertal below the exit of the 8-seater chairlift Snow Express. The snow park with its own lift and natural halfpipe is suitable for all freestylers, from beginners to professionals. On a total length of 320 meters you will find a beginner line, a medium line, a pro line, a jib line and an XL kicker line with various obstacles.
