ELLMAU – WINTER PARADISE!
SkiING & Snowboarden
The SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser-Brixental is the largest ski area in Austria and a very important part of the Kitzbüheler Alpen ski region. 91 Cable cars and modern Lifts, 279 km of ski piste, 210 km of snow-making, and more than 70 huts & mountain restaurants.
The SkiWelt doesn’t stand out simply because of its size and the many different pistes, but also for it’s quality and modern facilities. It is for this reason that the SkiWelt has been commended for the last two years as the “best ski area in the world”, beating some 400 other resorts to this prestigious title.
Largest night skiing area in Tirol. The already-existing 3 km long floodlight system for the valley run in Söll has been extended by a further 3 runs in Hochsöll. The Salvenmoos – Keat – and Hexen6er runs turn night into day.
Backcountry and Ski Guiding
Backcountry skiers can enjoy the freedom of the mountains, skiing individual routes, or enjoy the accompaniment of an experienced and certified backcountry ski guide. For those who prefer there is a huge amount of off-piste skiing to explore around the 279 km of piste in the SkiWelt. We also offer ‘ski safari’ routes which are marked ungroomed ski runs.
Funparks Wilder Kaiser
Not only fans of traditional alpine skiing get their Highs out of the Wilder Kaiser region in winter. Freestyle skiers and snowboarders have also plenty to smile about. Whether on one board or two, freestylers can now get their adrenaline rush at no fewer than three funparks within the SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser-Brixental, including a new Funslope. Our fun parks offer fun for all freeriders, from beginners to jump freaks and pros, with thrills and spills guaranteed.
Night tobogganing becomes a highlight
With their numerous toboggan runs the Wilder Kaiser region is a well known and popular tobogganing area. A total of 16 kilometres, most with snow-making, spread over five toboggan runs, ensures fun and excitement for the whole family. Whether you prefer a romantic forest track, as from the Graspoint Niederalm Tannbichl, or the more athletic 4.5 km long toboggan run on the Astberg, there is something to satisfy all toboggan fans. The toboggan runs are flood lit, turning night into day for even more fun!
