Ski area SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser - Brixental

With the lift pass "SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser - Brixental" you have access to one of the largest interconnected ski regions in Austria! The SkiWelt has been elected the best ski area in the world on various occasions by the independent platform ''Skiresort Service International'' and additionally was awarded as one of the top ski areas in winter 13/14! 90 modern lifts, 284 km of prepared piste (229 km serviced by snow-making systems) including 23 km of ski routes, as well as the "Kaiserpark" on the Hartkaiser with quarter pipe, slides and boardercross guarantee endless snow fun. In the ski area you can also find a night tobogganing run with a length of approx. 4.5 km.

Since the 2015/2016 winter season, the new, high-tech, 10-person gondola "Hartkaiser" takes you up to 1,530 m altitude. The cabin lift has heated seating and Wi-Fi, and replaces the previous "Hartkaiser" lift, now being one of the most modern lifts in the world. This also leads to modernisation of the actual lift stations. The mountain station was enlarged to include the new "Erlebnis Eldorado Hartkaiser" activity area, including e.g. a children's restaurant and activity ski school. The valley station includes a new sports shop, restaurant, apres ski bar, parking garage and a heated ski depot.

From the Hartkaiser you can directly access the rest of the SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser - Brixental. The 4.1 km valley run from Hartkaiser in particular promises unlimited piste fun, besides loads of other attractive runs. Cracks can test the black pistes, and ample deep snow areas are also available. The 77 ski huts in the ski area promise a real treat.

A fantastic experience in Austria's largest night ski area should not be missed: freshly prepared and lit pistes attract even locals who blend in with the visitors, everyone sweeping down the slopes together

With an upgrade to the "Kitzbüheler Alpen AllStarCard" you also have the choice between 2,750 kilometres of piste and 916 lifts in 25 ski areas (see ski region).
