Snowlicious – the culinary event on Hochfügen’s slopes is entering its second round

The second round for Snowlicious, the series of pleasure events directly on Hochfügen’s slopes, was opened on 8 December. This winter, the 430 hp PRINOTH snow groomer will once again charge its mobile kitchen and let a DJ get in on the roof. New this season: changing award-winning chefs conjure up sumptuous appetizers from the snow groomer directly onto the slopes.

With the self-sufficient kitchen on the PRINOTH snow groomer, the snow groomer heads for the most beautiful places in the Hochfügen ski area. There, BMW Mountains pitches the tents, or rather launch furniture and fire barrels, at an altitude of 2,500 meters. Top international chefs will each serve three appetizers at affordable prices at toque level. This year, for example, there was already a cappuccino from Maronis, a tartare of smoked trout with wasabikra and beetroot or pink roasted saddle of venison with red cabbage and glazed apples. In the middle of the ski area, the flair of the big metropolises with their smart casual dining comes up.

The right fine wine is available at the wine and gin bar, where a sommelier personally pulls the corks. Or how about an unusual cocktail, which is conjured up by the bartenders at the snow bar with a show interlude? In addition, chilled sounds from former radio presenter and DJ Roland Schmuderer. You can put your feet up in the BMW Chillout Area or treat yourself to one appetizer after the other from the award-winning kitchen.

Rush of award-winning chefs in Hochfügen

Hochfügen will be a Mecca for gourmets this year. Here, in addition to local hero Alexander Fankhauser (3 toques), Jonnie Boer from the Netherlands – awarded 19.5 points in Gault Millau – has already swung the wooden spoon. Of course, the TV chef Fankhauser can be counted on again this year. For this winter, talks are already underway with chefs Jan Hartwig (3 stars Germany), Andreas Hillejan (1 star Germany) and Andreas Döllerer (#2 of the 50 Top Chefs Austria). In the meantime, more and more celebrity chefs themselves are asking whether they can seize the unique opportunity to present their toque appetizers in the middle of the Hochfügen ski area.

The Hochfügen ski area

Ride up, come down – Hochfügen relaxes. This is how the Hochfügen ski area advertises, one of the highest ski areas in Austria, which extends from 1500 to 2500 meters in altitude . At the beginning of the Zillertal, easily accessible via a high-altitude road and far away from the hustle and bustle of the valley, there are 37 lifts available in the ski area.

The fourth largest ski area in the Zillertal offers the most relaxed Zillertal snow paradise with varied ski slopes, deep snow runs, ski touring routes, toboggan runs and cross-country ski trails. The 90 kilometres of ski slopes can be covered with 100 percent snow and guarantee snow throughout the entire winter season, including valley runs in the sunshine.

In addition to state-of-the-art lifts with heated seats, the Hochfügen ski area offers other exciting features such as the Lamark Snowpark consisting of three lines and a total of 13 elements, the FunLine Hochfügen – a mixture of piste, cross and snow park as well as numerous photo and video hotspots. The ski-in and ski-out dream is also particularly popular with freeriders: easily accessible powder slopes, information and course options or even free guides on weekends offer deep snow fans the perfect conditions to move around in the open ski area.
