John Harris from United Kingdom
A great resort: friendly, cheap, amazing off-piste and hardly any queuing. Whatever you do don't abandon your over priced French ski resorts and come to Austria.
2 pints 7.5 euro, served by friendly staff in great bars and restaurants. Hell, even the toilets are great. Did I mention the off-piste........:) Oh and the pistes are also outstanding.

Until a few years ago Fieberbrunn was an unexceptional Tirolean resort; there are many similar places. A few lifts, a small selection of pistes, some off-piste through the trees and under the lifts. Ideal for day trips for families.
The introduction of new lifts has made a big difference. Firstly, the Reckmoos lifts opened up two big bowls with some long steepish reds and plenty of off-piste.
Last year, even more importantly, a new lift linking up with Saalbach / Hinterglemm has completely changed the nature of the resort. This opens up the possibility of long days of piste cruising. It is even possible to ski to Leogang (about 15km up the valley) and get the bus back in the evening, though perhaps a few more buses might be a good idea.
Although there are some hotels and apartments around the lifts the main area of the village is a little way away, necessitating use of a bus or car. It is a much quieter and more family friendly spot than the rather party focused Saalbach / Hinterglemm area. It is probably a good place for a group with different skiing levels; the local slopes are ideal for beginners whilst there is plenty to challenge further afield.

Fieberbrunn is a brill place for beginners to advanced skiers. I have been a guide and holiday supplier here for 10 years now and it is the best place I have skied. Once you know it you can ski 1820 meters off-piste to the bottom lift. You will need a guide!!
Go and enjoy, Fieberbrunn is brilliant.

Fieberbrunn; A place that looks like the perfect family resort, and it is, but it’s also a very good place for the advanced snowboarders.
The opportunities off-piste are great and because mostly families go there the powder nearly doesn't get touched.
On piste there isn’t much to say. The pistes are good and with a lack of snow the snow cannons do their work fine.
There is a great fun park down at the Streuböden mid station and the famous Lord of the boards half-pipe rocks even at night cause it stays floodlit till 10.00PM.
I’ve already been here like 10 years and I’m still not getting bored.
If you are going for the après-ski there isn’t a lot in Fieberbrunn, but of course there are some good spots, like the Biwak, and Cheers but that’s about it.
If you want some info just give me a mail. Nick.firstname.lastname@example.org
