SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser-Brixental. Incredible Big.
The SkiWelt is Austria's largest interconnected ski area. In 1977, the mountain railways from six locations between Brixental and Wilder Kaiser merged: the SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser – Brixental was born.
The SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser-Brixental covers nine villages, Brixen im Thale, Ellmau, Going, Hopfgarten, Itter, Kelchsau, Scheffau, Söll and Westendorf, from where the ski domain is accessible by ski lifts.
The ski area reaches all the way up to a snowsure altitude of 2,000 meters above sea level, with the slopes located further down in the valley serviced by a network of snowmaking machines to ensure top conditions throughout the season. It has 90 Cable car lifts and Ski lifts, 280 Kilometers of pistes, and ski routes. You can dscover one of the largest and most modern ski resorts in the world on the newly signposted SkiWelt Tour. The tour can be enjoyed in a clockwise (green signs) or anti-clockwise direction and skiers can start and end the tour in any of the SkiWelt villages.

The resort's 80 mountain huts are the ideal place to stop off for a drink and a snack, while the enchanting Igloo Village and sun lounge made from natural ice are well worth a visit at the top of the cable car in Hochbrixen, next to the Panoramarestaurant Bergkaiser.
