Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn resort with its huge network of pistes extends over several chains of mountains and valleys in the Kitzbühel Alps, making it one of the largest ski resorts in the country. Indeed, such is the scale of the resort that the pistes stretch from Tirol into the neighbouring region of Salzburg.
Fieberbrunn has been lift-connected with Saalbach-Hinterglemm since 2015 and the ‘Ski Alpin Card’ pass now covers over 400 kilometres of piste across the Ski Circus Saalbach-Hinterglemm-Leogang-Fieberbrunn (270 kilometres) and Zell am See-Kaprun (135 kilometres).
Fieberbrunn ski area
Fieberbrunn is ideal for skiers and snowboarders who want to cover as many different pistes as possible. There are also a number of snowparks as well as floodlit pistes, snow trails and cosy huts. Fieberbrunn in Tirol is ideal for families, though in recent years it has developed a reputation as a freeriding hotspot thanks to its challenging terrain and excellent powder on the Wildseeloder mountain.
The local ski area's top lift height of 2020m is not high compared to many famous Alpine resorts, or the 36km of runs particularly large, the area benefits from legendary snow cover thanks to the local microclimate - which gives it the most average annual snowfall in the Kitzbühel Alps.
The Freeride Park at the Lärchfilzkogel mountain in Fieberbrunn is the perfect place for skiers and snowboarders to work on their jumps. Popular freeride spots include the Reckmoos, the Hochhörndl and the Wildseeloder. Once a year the world's best freeriders gather in Fieberbrunn for the Freeride World Tour.
Freestylers are absolutely catered for in the Skicircus Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn. At the middle station Streuböden you will find the "Easy Park". It offers freestylers of all levels five kickers, two wave tracks and four boxes.
Beginners and families will also find plenty of pistes in the Skicircus (TirolS high-speed 10-seater gondola connects Fieberbrunn with Saalbach-Hinterglem). In fact, around half of the pistes are classified as blue (easy). Fieberbrunn is particularly good for those just getting their snow legs. As well as a short beginners' life at the bottom of the resort and many easy pistes further up the mountain, there are also a large number of red (intermediate) slopes, including the "Radarfalle" ("Speed Trap") run where skiers and boarders can try to set a new personal top speed.
There are plenty of mountain restaurants and huts serving excellent food throughout the resort.
Fieberbrunn is a lot quieter but still has a few lively bars for the end of the day. There is a range of different bars offering traditional live music, parties and various evening events, all at reasonable prices.
Après-ski can be found on the slopes at the S4 Alm which has all the facilities that a good après-ski bar should have: a sunny terrace and live music. The Biwak Bar is located at the bottom of the Streuböden in Fieberbrunn, where you can party until the early hours. Enzianhütte opens early for a coffee stop, lunch, and in the afternoon the party slowly gets going on the sunny terrace.
For the evening, 17 restaurants in the village provide an ample choice of traditional and international cuisine. All at reasonable prices.
The resort itself is about 5 minutes away from the ski lifts by ski bus although there is accommodation spread along the road between the two and you can stay on or near the slopes.
