Ski area SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser - Brixental

With the ski pass "SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser - Brixental" you have access to one of the largest and most modern ski areas in the world. The SkiWelt has already been voted one of the best ski areas in the world several times! 90 modern lifts, 288 km of slopes and three snow parks guarantee endless fun in the snow. Whether young or old, beginner or professional, everyone gets their money's worth here.

The Jochbahn, the fastest 8-seater chairlift in the world, is operated on Brixen's sunny side. With a travel speed of 6 m per second, the detachable, heated chairlift bridges the 2 km long distance extremely quickly and at the same time offers great comfort. In addition, there is the Joch downhill run which, thanks to an ingenious subway solution, takes skiers over the access road without any crossings.

From Brixen you finally reach the Hartkaiser via Hochbrixen, where beginners as well as experts and freeriders get their money's worth. On the one hand you have the connection to the Hohe Salve, on the other hand via the Choralpe even to the Kitzbühel slopes. The Big Playground on the Gampenkogel sweetens the day for boarders. The 5.5 km long downhill run from the Choralpe, as the steepest slope in the SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser - Brixental, requires a little experience, whereas beginners will find great slopes on the Westendorf side or also at Hochbrixen. Freeriders get their money's worth in Hopfgarten, Scheffau or Westendorf. The 80 refreshment stops that line the ski area also promise real "high pleasure".

If you are going on holiday together with your children, or if in fact you yourself have a thing for fairytales, you should definitely check out the new 10-person "discovery"-gondola in SkiWelt Söll. Interesting experiences built around the theme "Hans in Luck" await you!

By upgrading to the "Super Ski Card" lift pass, you get access to over 2,750 km of piste and 938 lifts in 22 ski regions!
