Ski area Kaunertaler Glacier - Fendels

With the lift pass "Kaunertaler Gletscher - Fendels" you can choose from around 34 km of piste in two different ski areas. In total there 17 lifts which take you comfortably up the mountain. You can either stay in the family-friendly resort Fendels with 11 km of piste or you can choose the area at the Kaunertal glacier with 23 km of piste and lots of free ride possibilities.

In Fendels there are many easy to intermediate pistes mostly for beginners. Children can let loose in the Bibiland. An especially nice piste is the valley run, past some wonderful larch woods. Experienced skiers can take the Planggerlift to some of the more challenging pistes. Once per week you can extend your skiing fun into the evening hours.

At the Kaunertal glacier you can enjoy winter sports at 2,180 to 3,108 m altitude. With the post bus you can even ascend to 2,750 m altitude, due to the highest post bus stop in Austria. The glacier ski area offers mainly wide and softly descending pistes. However, it also attracts free stylers due to the snow park at 2,990 m, and free riders who will find approx. 30 km of varying runs here. In the snow park and the restaurants, you'll als find free Wi-Fi.

NEW: Both of the "Weißseeferner" tow lifts have been replaced by the handicapped-accessible "Falginjoch" cable car, which takes you comfortably up to the Falginjoch peak. The cable car itself was also designed as a method of observation, thereby offering numerous glass features and exciting views into the technology of the cable car.

Night skiing Feichten

From Fendels the next night ski area is not far away. It is not located at Kauner Valley Glacier, but in the family-friendy ski area Fendels on the opposite side of the mountain. This is where the popular night skiing takes place in Kauner Valley. Every Thursday, night owls meet up for skiing by night-time at the Sattelboden lift. During the extended opening hours from 19:00 to 22:00, the red piste "Nordabfahrt" is illuminated by floodlight. The piste is 2.5 km long and it is illuminated from Sattelboden down to the valley station. After night skiing, you can make another stop at the popular "Bauernschmaus" all you can eat. Toboggan fans can look forward to an additional 4.5 toboggan run that is illuminated until 22:30. Seperate night ski passes can be acquired in resort.

Après ski Feichten

In Feichten everyone meets up at the KIWI (Kirchenwirt). Especially snowboarders and young people are to be found here. On the parking lot of the Fendels mountain lift there is the umbrella bar Fendels offering good music and lots of fun. Numerous guest houses and restaurant offer more tranquillity and also some Tyrolean specialities.

The programme is rounded off by going night tobogganing or night skiing (Thursdays in the ski area Fendels), ice skating or curling. The 4.5 long nature toboggan of the the lifts of Fendels, which even received the Tyrolean seal of approval is recommendable. The 2 km long toboggan run also offers night tobogganing with a hot mulled wine party once a week. Those who prefer it quieter will find approx. 20 km of winter hiking trails through the romantic winter landscape on offer. If you rather are looking for some action you can try yourself on the frozen waterfalls. In winter there are various possibilities for ice climbing to be found there.

Snowpark: Feichten

You are looking for a very special freestyle experience, the latest obstacles and the possibility to enjoy a snowpark at every level? Then the "Snowpark Kaunertal" is the right one for you! From autumn 2018 a new snowpark a.k.a. "The Nature Run" will be at your disposal. It leads from the mountain station of the Karlesjochbahn (railway) over different paths back to the gondola.

The different kicker and obstacle lines of the park can be easily combined with each other. As a newcomer to the field, you'll get the best entry points on minishreds with simple jibs and jumps, while at the same time you can learn from the pros of the scene.

Several lines with more than 20 different elements make freestyle hearts beat faster. From the Pro-, Medium - & Easy-Kicker Line, Hips, 6 m Wallride, a Jib Line with over 16 "back2back" features up to the "snake run" there is something for everyone. The freestyle fun at the Kaunertal Glacier lasts even longer than in most other ski areas: The legendary "Spring Classics" also offer the opportunity to shred again in April and May.

For those who want to share their latest tricks with friends right away, the park even offers free Wi-Fi.
