Quite apart from the excellent ski area, there are also numerous highlights and special sporting attractions for all snow lovers...
Night turns to day in Söll (just down the road from Ellmau): Austria's largest night skiing area offers perfectly groomed floodlit slopes right down to the valley from Wednesdays to Saturdays in winter. The Hochsöll, Hexen-6-seater and Hans im Glück lifts offer pure moonlight skiing pleasures with over 10 kilometres of pistes in total - the longest night run in Austria!
As dusk falls, snow groomers prepare the slopes for evening skiers, the valley run is even floodlit until 22.30 hrs! And then of course there is the perfect opportunity for après-ski fun...
Cross-country skiing offers sporting pleasures combined with a wonderful experience of nature! Whether you prefer classic or skating techniques: our Wilder Kaiser region has over 65 km of groomed cross-country ski runs that lead through fantastic winter landscapes. Here, too, every taste is catered for, from beginner trails to more challenging routes.
There are numerous venues for a coffee or a hot chocolate break between the four “Kaiser Mountain” regions of Going, Ellmau, Scheffau and Söll. There is also the possibility of using the floodlit night trail in the evening in Scheffau!
Ski touring has become increasingly popular in recent years! The Wilder Kaiser region has numerous beautiful tours amongst its repertoire. To ensure a safe passage, however, you should be acquainted with the terrain and make sure you know what weather can be expected before setting out. It is therefore advisable to tackle the route with a state-certified mountain and ski guide - we are more than happy to help you find a qualified person to accompany you on your ski tour adventure.
And another special new service: The Ellmau lift company opens the slope up to Hartkaiser every Thursday for ski tourers in winter from 18 to 22 hrs - so you can pursue your favourite sport on a groomed slope.
Do you know what a snow-bike is? You can jet down the slopes in the Skibike area Wilder Kaiser - Brixental with this mix of cycling and skiing. Great fun for people of all ages - and blessed relief for those who often get pain in their joints during "normal" skiing.
Accompanied by experienced instructors from the Snow-Bike School in Ellmau, you can learn basic techniques in a workshop. Then you can head out to the fun-filled slopes! Snow-biking is suitable for children aged 8 and over, bikes can be rented on site.
