REAL BIG – SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser - Brixental
SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser – Brixental is Austria’s largest interconnected ski area and is one of the most varied winter sports areas in the Alps, with the greatest certainty of snow. One award after another is proof that here 280 km of ski runs, over 90 modern lifts and more than 70 refreshment stops make for winter fun which is simply “world class”. With 13 km of night skiing slopes and 11 km of floodlit toboggan runs day becomes night to let night-time thrill seekers sweep down perfect slopes and toboggan runs across the sea of lights in the valley.
Whether with family, as a couple, with friends, alone or in a group: at SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser - Brixental you’ll always get your money’s worth and find an offer to suit everyone!
It’s white as far as the eye can see when it comes to snow conditions here too: SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser - Brixental is particularly blessed with natural snow. In addition, 245 km of the 280 km of slopes can be completely covered with manmade snow; 120 km can be covered with snow in just 3 days! This is guaranteed by more than 1,500 snow machines in the ski area.
From treeless summit slopes for carvers, to richly varied slopes for experts and family slopes bathed in sunshine, to the fantastic valley descents which go on and on, all the slopes are in perfect condition. Spectacular views and mountains of snow are guaranteed.
Notwithstanding all the superlatives, which SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser – Brixental has already earned, it is the cosy atmosphere, warm hospitality and Tyrolean charm which set the tone. More than 70 of Austria’s loveliest ski huts and mountain restaurants, sun terraces and snow bars invite you to call in for a rest and a bite to eat. From a “statistical point of view” you have an opportunity to do so every 3.5 km!

Visitor Reviews of Hopfgarten

Stephen Barker from United Kingdom writes:

I love this place; used it heavily in the late 80’s early 90’s (Xmas and New-year). Had an accident so I was out for a few years. Returned in 2012, all but a few lifts replaced so it's all state of the art. 2013 had little snow but that didn’t matter they make their own very well. Will be returning Xmas 2014/15. Love the place and always will. Skied Italy, France, Germany and Canada on many occasions. They don’t beat the SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser Brixental.
