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! On various occasions the SkiWelt was voted to one of the best ski areas worldwide by the platform "Skiresort Service International", and during the winter season 13/14 it was additionally granted an award as one of the top ski areas! 90 modern gondolas, 284 km of prepared piste (of which 229 km can be covered in artificial snow) including 23 km of ski routes, some with flood-lights, as well as the "Kaiserpark" at Hartkaiser with quarter-pipe, slides and boardercross guarantee unlimited fun. Hopfgarten is connected to the Skiwelt Wilder Kaiser via the local mountain Hohe Salve. An 8-person cable car takes you comfortably up 1,200 m to the mid-mountain station, where the fun begins.

The 3.5 km long valley descent to Itter via Hohe Salve awaits skiers with stamina and good condition. The Salvista descent caters for free-riders, and boarders can let loose at the snow park Söll with tables, kicker, and rails. Westendorf and Ellmau also have snow parks with quarter-pipe and other challenging features. Real enjoyment is to be had here with 77 places to relax, have a drink and perhaps a bite to eat.

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.

In time for the winter season 2015/2016, a special attraction in terms of lift comfort is opening in Hopfgarten: the new 6-person chair lift Schernthannbahn offers heated seating, comfortable cushioning, a light blue coloured weather protection guard and automated clamp closure as well as an automated boarding aid. The latter is a lift table which recognises when children want to board. This lift proves that lifts can always get that bit more comfortable and safe.

The lift pass upgrade to the "Kitzbüheler Alpen AllStarCard" (see ski region tab for more info) provides for even more enjoyment: this lift pass grants access to unlimited skiing pleasure in 25 ski region in Tyrol and Salzburg with 916 lifts and 2,750 piste kilometres!
