Ellmau Skiing and Snowboarding

The SkiWelt is the largest mountain circuit in Austria that links up seven different resorts. A funicular railway at the edge of the village of Ellmau takes you up to Jartkaiser where you then take gondolas to get to the next areas. Ellmau has a good variety of nursery slopes around the village that are covered by snowmaking. Scheffau’s nursery area is at the top of the Brandstadl gondola. Intermediates will just love the area as you have 250Kms of piste to play on during your stay in the region. It is a big area so you have a real feeling of travelling around. Experts will enjoy the steep drops off the Hohe Salve Summit and the little mogul field between Brandstadl and Neualm. The off-piste is amazing so hire a guide and go for it if you have the stamina! Ellmau has its own terrain park and there are various other parks throughout the full area. For cross country skiers there are long, challenging trails. There is 170Kms in the SkiWelt area.
