Fieberbrunn: Tyrol's Freeride Paradise

Hi, I'm Isabell, one of the editors at snow-online.com. I've been skiing since I was a kid and now I can't wait to get back on the slopes every winter. That's why I'm lucky that (after my studies in media and communication) I found a job where everything revolves around my favourite hobby. If you have any questions about me or about snow-online.com, ask me! Just send an email... Read more

Those in search for relaxed powder runs and exciting freeride contests have come to the right place in Fieberbrunn. Located in the region with the most snow in Tyrol, 'Freeride El Dorado' Fieberbrunn offers some amazing slopes with wonderfully deep powder snow. All of these slopes can easily be accessed with lifts and railways. Members of the freeride elite around the world are regular guests at the events in Fieberbrunn.

Easy up, wild down

The valley of PillerseeTal in the Kitzbühel Alps is an extremely popular destination among freeriders. That is no wonder, since the town of Fieberbrunn is ideally suited to freeriders' needs and preferences. Especially the area around Wildseeloder has been well-known in the freerider scene for decades. However, since the merger with the Skicircus Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn, new areas like the Northern slopes at the Hörndlinger Graben or the powder snow around the Reiterkogel have also been added.

What makes the Skicircus special is that the deep snow slopes can be reached easily, quickly and directly with 70 different lifts. This way, freeriders can get going in the powder almost entirely without demanding ascents. “Easy up, wild down” is the circus's motto. With conditions like these, the PillerseeTal attracts large numbers of powder fans during the freeriding season in February and March. Thanks to its huge selection of freeride possibilities, the area still has more than enough space for everyone to enjoy their deep snow adventures.

As wonderful and carefree the off-piste way down the slope can feel, your safety always comes first. Beginners especially should not just dive into the unmarked deep snow slopes right away. Here's where the Freeride-Experts come into play. The guides offer lessons both for those new to freeriding and the more advanced, as well as rental services for highly modern equipment. A tour can also be a great experience for very advanced freeriders, since the experts take the group to some of the best powder runs at the Skicircus.

If you're looking to learn even more, you'll want to observe the tricks of professional freeriders. The international freeriding elite show their talent in PillerseeTal each year at different events. From February 8 to 15 in 2020, the area will host the Danish freeride championship. For the third time, the 130 fearless Danish freeriders will be competing for the title at the Wildseeloder.

The next highlight will follow only one month later. From March 7 to 13, the Freeride World Tour will once again host an event in Fieberbrunn. It is the tour's only stop in Austria. The event is among the most famous in the freeriding scene. Here, the best riders in the world race down the Wildseeloder at gradients of up to 70 degrees, overcoming altitude differences of 600 meters (1,970 feet). Of course, the party program during the World Tour is not bad either.

Right after the Freeride World Tour, the ALPIN Deep Snow Days will take place at the Skicircus. At the largest ski touring and freeriding festival in the Alps, many different events and workshops await guests at the “Base” in Fieberbrunn. Lessons are offered both for beginners and advanced freeriders. During the guided tours, participants are accompanied by 50 mountain and freeriding guides. Visitors at the Deep Snow Days (March 13 to 15, 2020) will also have the opportunity to rent and test the newest equipment.
