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, 250 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.

Visitor Reviews of Scheffau

The first time I went to Scheffau was March 2014. The snow wasn't great but the pisters had done a fantastic job. Having had a great holiday I went back for a weekend break in January and a family trip in March. Thankfully, the snow was much better this year!
Scheffau is perfect for skiing the SkiWelt area as it's in the middle of the ski area. If you're travelling with children then this place is great, if it's their first time I would suggest the KinderKaiserland ski school as it's located at the top of the gondola and it's easy to come back during the day to see how they are getting on. If they have been before I would recommend ski School Ingrid Salvenmoser as it seemed quieter than the others and the groups are smaller. Having skied in France lots over the last 15-20 years it was refreshing coming back to Austria, so much cheaper than France and cleaner with picture postcard alpine buildings. Everytime I have stayed at the hotel kaiser in Tirol, I love this place, kids club in the evenings, fantastic food with free drink and it has everything you could wish for in a hotel. I've already booked up to go back next January and March!!
