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 Scheffau

Graham W from United Kingdom writes:

Stayed at the Land Alpin which continues to serve up excellent food and is conveniently located. With the relatively mild weather over Christmas the rooms were far too hot though and even with the windows open and the radiator off it was too hot in the room at night.
Snow not brilliant this year and we could not ski down to the gondola but with buses every 15 minutes, from outside the hotel, (except over lunch time) you never need to wait long for a bus. The gondola takes you up high and the snow up there was good up to about 2pm when it became slushy each day.
