SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser-Brixental is not only the largest interconnected ski area in Austria, but one of the largest in Europe.
It is made up of nine villages: Ellmau, Going, Scheffau, Soll, Brixen im Thale, Itter, Kelchsau, and Westendorf. Together they offer a combined total of 279 kilometres of pistes linked by 91 cable cars and lifts.
The ski area is set between 620 and 1870 metres altitude. It is suitable for all levels of skier, from beginners to experts. The area is also highly rated by snowboarders and features two snow and terrain parks.
More than 180 kilometres of pistes are kept fresh with snow cannons. There are plenty of mountain restaurants and huts to choose from with 70 scattered across the region. There are also 83 kilometres of well-groomed cross-country slopes.
Wilder Kaiser also boasts the largest night skiing area in the Tirol. The three-kilometre-long floodlit system in Soll is being extended by a further three runs in Hochsoll and will be equipped with a permanently installed snow making system.
