Ski area SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser - Brixental

With the lift pass "SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser-Brixental" you have access to one of the largest and most modern ski areas in the world! On numerous occasions, SkiWelt has won prizes as one of the best ski areas in the world. 90 modern lifts, 288 km of piste (of which 254 km can be covered with artificial snow) as well as five snow parks offer unlimited skiing fun. Regardless if you are young or old, novice or professional – SkiWelt has something for everyone.

The gondola quickly takes you into the ski area which does not offer many pistes for experienced skiers and the popular Funpark "Big Playground", but also a spacious beginners' area in the valley. Westendorf also has a connection to the opposite side of Brixental via the Kander piste - and form there to the whole ski area. The valley run in particular from the Hohe Salve promises pure fun on the pistes. Night tobogganing is another highlight not to be missed out on, along an approx. 8 km stretch.

All types of skills will get the most out of their stay here. In Söll, Austria's largest night ski area with approx. 10 piste kilometres awaits beginners as well as professionals. Freeriders can go all out in the "Hopfgarten". Pure joy is provided by 80 eating and drinking facilities along the piste where you can turn in for a break. Children won't miss out either: the "Hexenwiese" with its seesaw, mogul, dark tunnel and much more is a paradise for the little ones. That way they can grow into their ski boots playfully. The Söll ski school also offers age-appropriate lessons as well as childcare for all ages.

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!

Another highlight of the Skiwelt Westendorf is the ski movie run on the Schneeberg. Rides down this run are recorded and at the end of the day, skiers can download their own video and relive the run once more or share it with their friends.

If that's not enough skiing fun for you, you can take the Ki-West-slope and a short bus transfer to the neighbouring ski area Kitzbühel. With the Super Ski Card upgrade (s. ski region), you can enjoy skiing even more: this lift pass upgrade gives to access to diverse pistes in 22 ski areas in Tyrol and Salzburg with 938 lifts and 2,750 km of piste!

Night skiing Westendorf

The SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser-Brixental offers night skiing in three ski areas: in Söll, Brixen and Westendorf. In Westendorf, a 500 m piste awaits night owls at the 4-person chairlift. The practise area is illuminated every Tuesday until 21:00.

Even more night skiing is available for night owls in the SkiWelt Söll, the largest night ski area in Austria! Five prepared pistes at a length of altogether 10 km are available until night time from Wednesday to Saturday. The pistes at the Hochsöll gondola and the chairlifts Keat and Hexen6er are illuminated by floodlight until 21:30. The "Hans im Glück" at the 4-person chairlift as well as a night toboggan run are part of the nightly fun on the pistes. In order to go night skiing in Söll, a separate lift pass has to be acquired in resort.

Furthermore, a 300 m blue night ski piste that is illuminated until 19:00 can be found in Brixen at the Schusterbühel lift. A fee for the night skiing fun has to be paid at the lifts in Westendorf and Brixen.

Après ski Westendorf

In Westendorf you will find a diverse programme in the evenings: from cosy mountain huts, via lively bars and cafés, right up to various discos with live music - there is something here for everyone! "Gery's Inn". the "Karat Bar-Pub-Lounge" or the "Mosquito" are even known beyond the boundries of Westedorf and stand for enjoyable apres ski atmosphere.

The restaurants and pubs rather provide a cosy ending to the day and treat the customers to regional and international specialities. A trip to the neighbouring resorts Söll, Ellmau, Kitzbühel and Kirchberg are worth the effort, especially for night owls and shopping fans.

Snowpark: Big Playground Westendorf

Multiple great snow parks are available for you in the SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser-Brixental. Near Westendorf you will find the "Mini Playground" and the "Big Playground" park. The "Mini Playground" , located near the practice area, offers the mini-cross line and the mini-jib line, made up of waves, banked curves, jib boxes and jumps, particularly suited to beginners and younger freestylers.

Furthermore the "Big Playground", located at the Gampenkogelbahn lift, offers beginners and experts alike plenty of freestyle opportunities. On the easy line beginners can give slide elements a go. The pro line is available for more advanced freestylers and consists of a jump line and a jib line with bonks, boxes and rails. There is also the super-cross line with a snake-run and banked slalom - great fun for beginners as well as more advanced freestylers. There is also a chill-out area in the park. This special freestyle gem is certainly worth a visit.

Those who still want more will find three further snow parks in the SkiWelt: the "Skiparcours Hans im Glück", the "Kaiserpark" near Ellmau and the "Crazy Kangaroo Park" at the Salvenmoos, where you can run riot on the fun slope at night four times a week - thanks to flood light.
