Best forSki Weekends Beginners Intermediates Freeride Families Snow-sure Short Transfer Outstanding value
Small yet perfectly formed, Fieberbrunn is Tirol’s best kept secret and boasts the best snow record in the Kitzbüheler Alps. Fieberbrunn is our second home, our most popular resort and is ideal for short ski breaks, ski weekends and families. There is great skiing locally and in the Schneewinkel area (170 kilometres of piste) with further mileage available on the Kitzbuheler Alps All-Star lift pass. Off-piste, there is some fantastic freeride terrain and Fieberbrunn is a regular and popular stop for the Pros on the Freeride World Tour. Enjoy it now before the secret gets out!
The resort’s ski area (800-2020 metres) is located on the mountain range between Kitzbühel and Saalbach and offers great skiing locally and on the Schneewinkel Area which offers around 170 kilometres of piste.
The Schneewinkel area (Snow Corner) is made up of a number of resorts most notably Fieberbrunn, St Johann in Tirol and Waidring. An efficient and free resort bus network connects the entire area allowing you to easily day trip to the other resorts. For further piste mileage, check out the Kitzbuheler Alps All-Star Pass. This offers extended access to Saalbach’s 200 kilometres of piste (accessed from Fieberbrunn via nearby Leogang (20 minutes)) and Kitzbuhel (30 minutes) plus other resorts. Great for day-tripping.
With its own micro-climate, north-facing slopes and impressive snow record, top-to-bottom skiing lasts well into April. There is snow-making on virtually all of its pistes and some truly atmospheric mountain huts add to the appeal and charm of the area.
On piste, the area is best suited to beginner and intermediate skiers whilst off-piste, Fieberbrunn has earned a reputation as a top freeride destination with excellent lift-accessible terrain. Fieberbrunn hosted Austria’s first Big Mountain competition over 5 years ago and is now a major stop on the Freeride World Tour which attracts the world’s top riders and is testament to the quality of off-piste terrain here.
Whilst not on the same scale as the likes of mega-resorts such as St Anton and Ischgl, there is good après-ski to be had at the bottom of the slopes with several bars offering traditional live music or the latest hits all at bar prices well below the likes of St Anton. Other activities available include the resort swimming and sauna complex, a floodlit toboggan run, snow-biking, ice climbing, ski show, snow-rafting, ski school cabaret, snowshoe walking, sleigh rides and day trips to Salzburg, Innsbruck and Kitzbühel.
Eating out is excellent value with a wide choice of traditional and international restaurants and the resort centre also offers plenty of bars, ‘Stuberls’, cafés and a nightclub.
We offer Freeride Courses in Fieberbrunn which include fully qualified mountain guides, Freeride skis, avalanche safety equipment (transceiver, shovel, probe) and instruction on how to use them.

The Kitzbuheler Alpen All-Star lift pass brings together 10 ski areas, over 1000 kilometres of piste, 350 lifts and 250 mountain huts. Resorts include Fieberbrunn, St Johann in Tirol, Kitzbuhel, St Johann in Tirol, Ski Welt, Alpbach, Wildschonau, Saalbach and Zell am See-Kaprun.
If you are staying in Fieberbrunn or St Johann and fancy a day trip to Saalbach or Kitzbuhel or indeed further afield, it is well worth the premium of around 15% on the standard Schneewinkel pass.
Before the word Freeride had even been born, Fieberbrunn had always been an off-piste hotspot enjoying great snowfall and some fantastic lift-accessible lines.
Fieberbrunn was the first Austrian resort to host a ‘Big Mountain’ event which quickly became a Freeride World Tour (FWT) qualifier event and, in 2013, Fieberbrunn will play host to one of the FWT’s main global events for the third year in a row.
This has quickly become a major event with thousands of spectators and a whole weekend of workshops, competitions, live music and parties. Get in touch as soon as possible if you wish to make the most of this spectacular weekend.
