Summary

Westendorf is a quiet, attractive village with good local slopes for confident intermediates. The resort is slightly off the main SkiWelt circuit, but is linked to Brixen im Thale. Access to Kitzbühel’s slopes on the other side of the mountain is easy, with just a short bus ride involved, making Westendorf one of the best places to stay for exploring both areas in a week. Snow reliability is not a strong point of the region though.

The Aualm quad chair up to Zinsberg is due to be upgraded to an 8-seater. A new 1.2km red run with snowmaking is planned for the Brixen area. There are plans for yet more snowmaking. A new underground car park is being built at Hopfgarten. At the HochSöll mid-station a family ski depot with test centre and toboggan hire will be available, and the children’s ‘Witches land’ in Söll is to be expanded. The panoramic Bergkaiser mountain restaurant is being refurbished and will have seating for 200. The terrace in the Brandstadl mountain restaurant in the Scheffau area is being expanded.
