Scheffau Ski Holidays
Scheffau is an attractive village located at the north-eastern corner of the SkiWelt. The resort is settled in the middle of the stunning Wilder Kaiser mountain’s and Kitzbuheler Alps. The Ski Welt area is Austria’s largest ski area that is 15Km across. Although part of this huge area, the village remains quiet with traditional chalet-style buildings throughout. Scheffau has a quieter relaxed ambience compared to Ellmau but both villages are full of traditional Austrian charm with a good range of activities on offer.
Scheffau 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. 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.
Scheffau Apres Ski
Scheffau is quieter than Ellmau but is extremely friendly and more informal. The Almrausch and Apres Tent are good for a few beers at the end of the day. Off the slopes in Scheffau you will find tobogganing and it is just a short bus ride to Ellmau to take advantage of their facilities.
