The Snowiest Valley

It’s official – the Pillersee valley has been the snowiest region and Hochfilzen the snowiest village in Tyrol since 2014.

The ‘snowest valley’, located in the Kitzbühel Alps, once again lived up to its reputation last winter and broke several records.

Waidring, for example, had the highest snow depth in over a hundred years at 1.62 metres, and St Ulrich am Pillersee the highest in 30 years at 2.16 metres.

Hochfilzen itself reached the second highest value in the century, but it was at 2.45 metres the highest in the Pillersee valley.

The abundance of snow is a valuable asset for the winter sports region. “This almost legendary snow security is a definite competitive advantage for winter tourism in our region and especially for the future,” said TVB managing director Armin Kuen.

This year the season has started on time as well – with ski lifts and cross-country skiing tracks already in operation.

And, of course, with that snow record, the region is a perfect location for snowshoe tours:
