Night skiing Hochfilzen

Skiing fun does not need to end after the lifts' regular opening hours, so that many night ski areas in Austria illuminate their pistes for night skiing. In the 3 Länder Freizeit-Arena ski area, night-owls can look forward to a floodlit piste for night skiing. Nearby Hochfilzen, in St. Johann in Tirol, you will find the "Reuppenhang" night ski piste. Here, the double chairlift Hochfeld I operates for night-time skiing every Wednesday from 19:00 to 21:30. The approx. 1.5 km piste is even illuminated until 22:00. Taking 3-person chairlift, night tobogganers can use the illuminated toboggan run. Access to the night ski area is not included in the regular lift pass and can be acquired in resort.

Après ski Hochfilzen

Apart from skiing, Hochfilzen and the neighbouring resorts have everything in store that makes for a perfect ski holiday. Toboggan fun in Hochfilzen can be enjoyed on "Hoametz", directly in the Pillersee ski area - the approx. 1.5 km toboggan run leads down from Hoametzl hut to Warmingerhof and is illuminated until midnight. Toboggans can be hired at the hut. Various further toboggan runs can also be found in the four other muncipalities in the valley.

The umbrella bar in the Pillersee ski area offers regular parties so that night-owls will also get their money's worth. If you prefer to take it slow, you can enjoy the wonderful mountain scenery on miles and miles of winter hiking paths, or show off your skills when ice skating on frozen lake Pillersee.

Regional specialities are available in numerous restaurants and guest houses which offer Kaiserschmarrn (sugared pancake with raisins), Gröstl (traditional dish with potatoes, beef or pork served in a pan) and Backhendl (breaded, deep fried chicken). In Hochfilzen, the restaurant "Chily", e.g. organised themed evenings, serving Tyrolean home cooking every Tuesday and grilled dishes every Saturday from December onwards.

Snowpark: Hochfilzen

Those freestylers who have not yet been to Pillerseetal should change that as soon as possible! Everybody who wants to explore the more risky heights far away from the family ski area in Hochfilzen must not miss "Snowpark Steinplatte". After a longer waiting period, the scene's pros and especially all those who want to become one are now back in the region. On a length of 740 m you can look forward to three different areas that meet the requirements of every level of skill.

You're only just beginning? No worries - the beginner line has a perfect way of introducing you to the new challenge. A dancefloor, an elephant, wax, and flat/down butter as well as mushroom jib as well as other obstacles enable you to try out your first freestyling steps.

Does this sound a little boring to you? - The medium and advanced areas are probably the better place for you! All you can possible wish for is available here - a 3m wallride spine, a 6 m picknicker, various boxes and massive kickers with jumps of 7 - 11 m invite you to perfect your moves.
