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.

Just had a week in Ellmau, fantastic snow, great conditions at all levels due to the previous heavy snowfalls, was very cold in the mornings especially on lifts. Great for intermediates with plenty of choice. I have skied here quite a few times and never get bored. A lot of linked resorts i.e. Soll, Going, Itter, Westendorf just to mention some. The funicular railway in Ellmau is a very quick link to all of other resorts (depending on ability). Accommodation is varied to suit all pockets. We did stay in a cheap catered chalet exclusive to Crystal (very poor). This year we went half-board with Crystal, could not complain.
Overall, a great village for skiing, limited for non skiers, but always a great atmosphere.
