SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser Brixental Ski Resort Austria

SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser Brixental ski resort is the second largest interlinked skiing area in Austria - though they claim to be the largest (we reckon Ski Arlberg - St Anton et al is larger ..... & better!). With over 284km of slopes, 90 major ski lifts & 81 mountain huts, the SkiWelt has something for everyone looking for a quintessential Austrian ski holiday, but on the piste!

The SkiWelt area's huge statistics continue with a skiable vertical of 1,337m. The caveat though is the comparatively low elevation of the bases; the lowest of which is Hopfgarten at 620m. The low base suggests a visit to the SkiWelt is best in January or February. Off-piste & freeride skiing & snowboarding is not hugely supported within the ski area (something we find a tad strange), however it statistically ranks as one of the most popular ski regions in the world. The nine main villages of the SkiWelt are all linked by lift and super-groomed piste trails to allow for epic ski explorations of the countryside.

Get a sense of the vastness of the ski area by viewing the SkiWelt ski trail map here.

If your ski proclivities are more tuned toward freeride off-piste & powder, a better option is the adjacent KitzSki area including renown Kitzbühel & Kirchberg.

Where is SkiWelt Austria?

Named after the peak of the Wilder Kaiser that looms over one valley & the Brixental (tal = valley) on the opposite side of the resort, SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser Brixental is in the iconic Tyrol state of Austria. The SkiWelt village of Hopfgarten is only 71km east of Innsbruck.

Travel to Hopfgarten & two other SkiWelt villages (Westendorf & Brixen im Thale) is an easy train ride from Innsbruck (<1hr) or Munich (2hr) via Wörgl. The airports at Innsbruck (INN), Salzburg (SZG) & Munich (MUC) are the most convenient to the region.
