The SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser-Brixental extends on the slopes of the Hohe Salve and Hartkaisers in the Wilder Kaiser nature reserve. At 1,829 m, the Hohe Salve is the highest mountain in the region and offers a wonderful panoramic view of the Wilder Kaiser and the 3,000-meter peaks of the Tyrolean Alps.

These are spread over 122 km of beginner-friendly blue pistes, 129 km of red pistes and 10 km of black pistes for demanding experts. Those looking for freedom beyond the pistes will also get their money’s worth with 23 km of ski routes in the majestic mountains of the Tyrolean Alps.
The highest snow depth ever measured on the mountain is 280 cm. An ingenious system with a total of 906 snow cannons and 844 lances guarantees snow even in the lower elevations of the Brixental valley until spring. An average of 53 sunny days per season ensure optimal skiing conditions with clear blue skies. The fun in the snow in the SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser-Brixental does not end with the sunset: 10 illuminated kilometers of slopes in Söll invite you to enjoy evening skiing on freshly groomed slopes, while families with children enjoy romping about on the 7.8 km long night toboggan run.

On the black descent from the Choralpe to Westendorf, even experienced cracks will sweat with an 80% gradient. The Black Pipe ski route on the Hohe Salve is just as exciting. Freeriders love the unprepared Moderer ski route and the magical deep snow slopes on the Brandstadl for a real powder feeling.
Wide, gentle slopes and child-safe chairlifts ensure that the youngsters don’t fall by the wayside. 22 ski schools with a children’s area offer special children’s ski courses. A highlight for young and old is the ski course under the 10-seater gondola “Hans im Glück”, on which imaginative obstacles have to be overcome. In Hexenkinderland Söll, even the little ones will find the best entertainment on a playful course with a witch hump, witch seesaw and dark tunnel.
Do you want to be out on the slopes like professionals or compete with friends? This is also not a problem in the SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser-Brixental: three speed measurement routes in Brixen, Ellmau-Going and Scheffau offer the chance to compare your own times with those of your friends. On the Skimovie routes in Scheffau, Söll and Westendorf, everyone can present themselves to the cameras with their most beautiful carving swing and immediately share the best clips with the world via free WiFi in the social media portals.
Freestylers are spoiled for choice in the SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser-Brixental: four fun parks offer a variety of challenges. The Crazy Kangaroo Park at the Rinner 4-seater chairlift and the Hans im Glück gondola attracts experts with a 6-person jib line with flat tube, tank, downrail, kink box and flat box, as well as many other obstacles and the new Red Viper ski & boarder crossline with time measurement . And what’s more: thanks to the floodlights, Crazy Kangaroo Park continues after sunset!
If you want to escape the hustle and bustle of the ski slopes, you can go on one of the many ski tours in the deeply snow-covered Kaiser Mountains with a local guide to enjoy the solitude of the peaks. Cross-country skiers can look forward to 196.5 km of perfectly groomed trails – this, too, deserves the highest rating from our experts! The 2.2 km long high-altitude trail (Hochbrixen gondola) at 1,300 m altitude offers incomparable views over the mountains and safe slope conditions until the end of the season.

Ski experts love the SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser-Brixental: With an overall rating of 4.6 out of 5 stars, it is one of the best-rated ski areas in the Alps.
5) Off-piste activities
With more than 70 huts, the culinary well-being in the SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser-Brixental is well catered for. At the Hohe Salve summit restaurant, you can enjoy the unique view of the Kitzbühel Alps from the sunny terrace. The Tanzbodenalm is rustic and cozy, where a crackling open fire creates an atmosphere. The Rübezahl-Alm near Ellmau is often used as a filming location for music programs such as “Funny Musicians” and was one of the locations for the television series “Wilder Kaiser”. It can always happen here that German and Austrian celebrities sit at the next table. For the gastronomy in the SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser-Brixental, there are then also full points of five stars.
Après-ski in the SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser-Brixental may not be able to compete with Ischgl or St. Anton, but our experts are still worth four stars. Especially in Söll, the party goes on in the evenings with live music and Jagertee. B. in the Moonlightbar, next door on the Hexenalm or in the JamJar.
Probably the most beautiful après-ski location is the fairytale Alpeniglu® village in Hochbrixen at the mountain station of the gondola lift. An adventure world with illuminated ice sculptures, an ice church, a restaurant and a bar was created from snow and ice. The drinks are served here in the truest sense of the word “cool” – in glasses made of ice. If you like, you can even spend the night in one of the rustic igloos.
Three toboggan runs ensure rapid fun in the snow: the “Hexenritt” and the moon toboggan run in Söll, as well as the Astberg toboggan run in Ellmau-Going. Wonderful hiking trails invite you to spend active days away from the slopes.
Anyone who needs a break after so much sporting activity will find a wonderful wellness area with saunas, steam baths and a hay barn in the Ellmauer Kaiserbad. Meanwhile, the children let off steam in the adjoining adventure pool.
6) Places in the SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser – Brixental
Ellmau at the foot of the Wilder Kaiser is known far beyond Tyrol thanks to the television series “Der Bergdoktor”.
