PillerseeTal - the snowiest region in Tyrol

Where Frau Holle is at home...

What the locals have suspected is now officially confirmed: The PillerseeTal is the snowiest region of the Kitzbüheler Alpen and beyond the snowiest region of Tyrol. In the 30-year average the snowfall totals are at 516 centimetres and the average for maximum snow depth is 111 centimetres. The PillerseeTal is thus the snowiest region of Tyrol. In the detailed study of the Tyrolean ski tourism researcher Günther Aigner both the official measurement series of the last 30 years as well as the records of the Hydrographic Office Tyrol were examined.

Hochilzen is the snowiest place with permanent settlement in Tyrol

Hochfilzen is by far the snowiest place in Tyrol. In comparison of the meteorological data since 1895 and the current study by Aigner Hochfilzen sets apart from other communities like Obertilliach (388 cm) or Leutasch (515 cm) with 671 cm of snowfall a year.

The trend pointing upwards

Since the records began fluctuations in the amount of snow a year are recognized and provide no evidence of declining amounts of snow. Contrary to the general concerns raised over the continuance of winter sport researcher Günther Aigner confirms: "There is currently no evidence of falling snow amounts in the PillerseeTal. It should be noted that all snow parameters in the PillerseeTal show a rising trend over the last 30 years." 137 days of snow per year are also a strong argument for the snow security of the region.

The winter is in best health and is „playing at home“ in the PillerseeTal!
