Ski Juwel is a multi-million Euro developed ski area that has linked the existing resorts of Wildschonau and Alpbachtal into one larger area.The Wildschönau Valley has always been a favourite ski spot with schools, thanks to its tranquil setting and pretty tree-lined pistes. Our groups have access to a fantastic ski area connected by free shuttle buses and upgraded lifts.
Known for its first-class customer service, schools love the friendly locals in Wildschönau, as well as the magnificent mountain backdrops. A chance to experience the charming and traditional villages of the Wildschönau Valley adds a cultural dimension to your ski trip.
The resort is typified by quiet slopes set in stunning surroundings, and the customer service here is first-class. The heart of the €13.5million development is the installation of a new 8-person gondola linking Wildschonau with neighbouring Alpbachtal to create one of the biggest resorts in Tirol, comparable in size with Kitzbuhel and Mayrhofen, and offering 145km of mixed terrain served by 47 lifts. This picturesque and tranquil resort is set against some of Austria’s most stunning scenery, making it perfect for school groups.
The huge range of blue runs appeal to all skiers, giving beginners something to progress towards and allowing improvers to experience a range of different slopes – the wide runs above the tree line and long descents through the pine forests are a good place to build stamina and practice speed control.
The Niederau ski area has varied terrain, with gentle beginner runs as well as steep blacks that give confident skiers something to aim for. Auffach’s higher altitude is popular with intermediates and its long, beautifully groomed runs are loved by all abilities.
