Westendorf

Westendorf is a popular Dutch village. There are supermarkets, various spa treatments, great bars and restaurants and the après-ski is great. The Alpenrosenbahn takes you directly to Skiwelt Wilder Kaiser-Brixental. There is also an 8-person gondola which connects you to the Kitzbühel / Kirchberg ski area. The options are diverse, ranging from easy to intermediate runs with wide slopes to deep snow areas and black runs. You can go ice skating on a natural ice rink, tobogganing, curling and snowshoeing. Around Westendorf there is also an extensive range of cross-country trails.

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.

On destination, it is not possible to change the lift pass start date to another day. An extension of the lift pass can often be booked for an extra surcharge; the price for this can be found in step 1 of the booking process. The discount for "no ski pass" can also be found in the booking process.
