Fügen Ski Resort
Fügen's location at the foot of the Zillertal mean it is often wrongly overlooked by those heading to Mayrhofen – especially when the planned direct link to the Hochfügen is built in the coming years
The small local ski area at Onkeljoch is great for a day, with a neat pod of intermediate-friendly slopes directly above the valley and a 5.5km tobogganing run which is popular for families. The big news however is the planned link to join up the local slopes to the wider ski area, incorporating it into the Kaltenbach-Hochfügen ski area and its 86km of linked slopes. A big new 3S gondola is planned for 2020/21 so keep an eye out as this will transform the ski area.
The town of Fügen is sizeable, with a good range of accommodation on offer and easy access to the slopes, both locally via a gondola and more widely via an efficient bus and train service. Alternative accommodation is available up the valley at Hochfügen, which would be good base if you're looking for ski-in-ski-out hotels and a snowsure resort.
