It’s white as far as the eye can see when it comes to snow conditions here: SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser - Brixental is particularly blessed with natural snow. In addition, 250 km of the 284 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 1,700 snow machines in the ski area and if there is also real snowfall by December then SkiWelts' excellent reputation as Austria’s largest ski resort, with its 284 km of interconnected slopes will be completely justified. The Best of SkiWelt circuits (in addition to the vast number of slopes) are the Kaiser, Salve and Westendorf circuits, which spectacularly lead skiers and snowboarders to the most beautiful spots in SkiWelt. With these, depending on your fitness and ability, up to 4,000 m altitude difference can be descended. The tireless can also carve around at night, in Brixen, Ellmau and Söll, thanks to floodlighting. There has been expansion of the night-time skiing, offered by 3 further runs in Höchsöll. Furthermore, the illuminated toboggan run is now equipped with a snow-making system there. The popular Ladies’ Ski Day, the pleasure of winter sports for women at children’s prices, has already become a tradition at SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser-Brixental - Westendorf. SkiWelt is not only Austria’s largest interconnected ski resort; of all of the comparable large-capacity regions lift tickets are offered at the lowest prices here. As always, children up to the age of 5, who are accompanied by an adult, ride for free. 'The much frequented Ski Bunny Club'; The Ski Bunny forum has been very well received for years, enabling like-minded people to search for their ideal skiing or snowboarding companions on the internet at www.skiwelt.at beforehand. However, new friends can identify one another quickly on the slopes or in the traditional mountain lodges too by their Ski Bunny stickers. Then you will have twice as much fun in the snow.

Visitor Reviews of Westendorf

Matt Lee from United Kingdom writes:

Have discovered I've written a review already, but have missed off that Feratel, the streaming camera company, have cameras all over the area. The Westendorf cameras view two of the main skiing starting points and give a very good indication of snow conditions. There's a camera on Choralpe and on Talkaser.
Be wary that the snow across the valley can look very poor, even though Westendorf has snow. Westendorf keeps its snow far longer, as the far valley side is sun-facing.
Also, if you fly to Innsbruck, have a look for direct trains from Innsbruck. 15 min bus transfer from the airport to the main station and straight to Westendorf in about an hour. If there's 5 of you, or so, consider a taxi. Upside? 45mins quicker, elapsed.
