Ski Welt skiing

What’s it like?

Until recently this was the largest fully integrated ski area in Austria, linking together the resorts of Söll, Scheffau, Ellmau, Westendorf, Brixen and Going, offering 279km of piste in total.

As well as having fantastic skiing for all abilities, there is a great atmosphere on the slopes with rustic cabins and covered piste-side bars. Off the mountain you can choose from the livelier resorts of Ellmau and Söll or go for a quieter, more relaxed stay in Scheffau or Westendorf.


Ellmau is an attractive resort of traditional chalet-style buildings, with nursery slopes on the doorstep, and plenty of alternative activities such as winter walking on cleared paths and cross-country skiing. It is connected to the Ski Welt circuit by a mountain railway.

Scheffau is one of the loveliest villages in the area. Its charming centre is only a kilometre away from the main gondola and as part of the Ski Welt circuit, Scheffau has miles of piste to explore. There’s also plenty for the less adventurous, with impressive nursery slopes and a relaxed, informal après scene.

A long-time favourite with British skiers and boarders, Söll is a lively resort lying at the foot of the famous Hohe Salve mountain. It’s the main resort in the Ski Welt and is great for groups of mixed ability skiers. Off the mountain be prepared for some lively après and varied nightlife.

Westendorf is a quaint and charming little village offering access to a vast amount of terrain for all levels of skier and boarder. A long-term favourite for beginners and intermediates, there’s a nursery slope and an excellent snow park right next to the village.

With all the various national tourist boards applying widely varying criteria to hotel ratings, the whole question of international hotel grades has become confused. We have therefore applied our own 'rating', representing the general standards of that country in order that fairer comparisons can be made.

Please note: rating may differ from the official star rating of the local tourist board. Our classifications take into account not only the basic facilities, but also the location, leisure facilities, general character and atmosphere of the hotel, as well as customer feedback. Chalet ratings give comparisons with other chalets but do not provide like for like comparisons with the ratings of full service hotels.

Your package price and availability

Our website's prices and flight, accommodation and room availability are updated every morning. To calculate average price per person, applicable discounts are subtracted from your total cost, which is then divided by the number of adults and children (excluding infants). A full price breakdown can be viewed on the payment page.

In some circumstances, prices and availability may update during the day so you may find price/availability differences later in the booking process.

This is usually due to high demand for the selected holiday. Should you have any issues with this, please contact us or see here for more information.
