Ski instructors in the SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser-Brixental — Austria’s largest linked ski area — are offering visitors free ski guiding tours of the area until 23 March.

If you are staying in Going, Ellmau, Scheffau, Söll, Itter, Hopfgarten, Westendorf, Kelschau and Brixen im Thale, every day from Monday to Friday you can meet instructors from the local ski schools for a whole day’s guiding through the 279km of pistes in the SkiWelt area for free.

They promise to share their insider knowledge and show visitors the best runs, the great places for lunch (there are 70 mountain restaurants to choose from), where the best snow can be found and even the best après-ski. Guides will stop at a different mountain hut at the end of each day, so skiers and snowboarders can enjoy some traditional Austrian après-ski — as part of SkiWelt’s Party Weeks.

All you need to do is register at the local tourist board by 5pm the day before you want to join in — though the guiding is not available for beginners.

The SkiWelt is offering special deals on last-minute trips booked for next week — see our bargains page for more details.
