The Skiwelt offers traditional Austrian hospitality and dramatic mountain scenery, with 279 km of diverse skiing spread along the Wilder Kaiser mountain range. Nine villages in the valley floor provide comfortable lodgings.
Most of our groups access the Skiwelt at Söll, one of the better known villages in the region and centrally located to allow groups to get the most from their lift-pass. Skiwelt has an outstanding snow record and extensive snow cannon coverage - all valley runs and important resort connections have been open throughout the season for each of the last three years.
Close by, the traditional Tyrolean town of Kufstein, has plenty of shops, restaurants, attractions and has an historic 13th century fortress which is well worth a visit. Evening entertainments in the area include bowling, cinema, ice-skating, and there’s an indoor swimming pool a short coach ride away.
Beginners can find their feet on the nursery slopes at village level before cutting their teeth on the mountain, and with 45% of the ski area dedicated to blue runs there’s plenty of choice! The nearby area of Scheffau has a large network of blue runs weaving through the trees and open bowls on which you can gain confidence. Intermediates have a similar number of red runs throughout the resort, with short punchy steeps, longer trails through the forests plus some open areas offering wide runs.
Nine black runs are largely located in Söll and Scheffau, allowing a more stern challenge for those adventurous enough to try, whilst there's also a choice of three fun-parks plus the option of night-skiing from Wednesday to Saturday.
