Via the Brandstadl gondola lift you can explore all of this skiing area with its beautiful wide pistes. Scheffau is a quiet and pleasant village with a simple shopping centre and a skiing meadow for the children in the centre of the village. There are also many walking trails that have been set up around the Hintersteinersee. You can have a great time in the evenings in the various bars and restaurants. There is also the energetic après ski event at the indoor and outdoor skating rinks.

Wilder Kaiser-Brixental

Skiwelt Wilder Kaiser-Brixental offers some excellent options for both cross country and regular skiers. The villages of Ellmau, Going, Scheffau, Söll, Hopfgarten, Brixen im Thale and Westendorf share approximately 279 km (173 ml) of pistes to form the biggest interconnected ski area in Austria. Additionally, due to there being so many lifts in the area you are unlikely to encounter long queues.

You do not have to worry about the quality of the snow here either. In order to salvage the weaker areas outside of the winter season modern snow canons have been installed. The lift pass is included for the entire ski area of the Wilder Kaiser-Brixental.
