SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser – Brixental

SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser – Brixental has once again been voted best international ski resort out of 400 resorts around the world for four years in a row and was even voted best value-for-money ski resort in Austria. With 284 runs, over 90 modern cable cars and lifts, more than 70 refreshment stops, the ALPENIGLU® Village and so many incredible experiences, skiing here is simply world class.

Over 70 of the most beautiful Alpine huts and mountain restaurants in Austria, sun decks and snow bars, mostly family businesses, invite you to stop in for a bite to eat. Comfort, hospitality, Tyrolean specialities and genuine Tyrolean charm set the tone here – and from a purely statistical standpoint, you can stop for refreshment every 3.3 km!

When it comes to reliable snow the conditions here are also unbeatable: SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser - Brixental is particularly blessed with natural snow. In addition, from 284 km of slope, 225 km can be completely covered with manmade snow. 1,700 snowmaking machines in the area guarantee it!

From treeless summit slopes for carvers, richly varied slopes requiring technique and sun-drenched family pistes to “extra long” valley routes, all runs are in top-form with spectacular views and mountains of snow guaranteed.
