Ski Ellmau

Ellmau is a delightful place to ski, nestled in the Austrian Tyrol between the craggy peaks of the Wilder Kaiser mountains and the more rounded Kitzbüheler Alps.

For beginners, families and intermediate skiers, Ellmau is ideal, with slopes down to the village providing a range of initial options well-served by lifts. Despite the relatively low altitude, snow-making facilities are second-to-none, ensuring good coverage even in milder weather. Take a trip up the Hartkaiserbahn, a spectacular mountain railway, and then descend at your leisure along winding blue and red trails. There's a particularly long red run for strong-legged people from the Schmiedalm chairlift.

If you think that's all about Ellmau then you're mistaken because it's part of the massive SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser-Brixental circuit which means 280kms of piste, 90 cable cars and at least 70 mountain huts along the way for refreshment. SkiWelt gives you access to several other resorts including Söll and Westendorf.What's more, with a Kitzbühel Alps Ski Pass, you can reach that famed ski paradise, Kitzbühel, via Brixen im Thale and thrill yourself with a run down the world-famous Hahnenkamm.

A perfect base for varied skiing!

Après-ski Ellmau

Once a Tyrolean farming village, Ellmau is picturesque and traditional, dotted with chalets and with a pretty church. Nightlife is relatively quiet, but there's live music in many of the bars - try The Heldon, Café Memory and the Disco Tenne, and every day is party day at Fabels.

For non-skiers and for a change, try tobogganing, swimming, bowling, curling and skating. Nearby is the bustling market town of St. Johann in Tirol with a traffic-free centre good for a shopping day.

Ellmau is a good value Austrian ski resort, good value and perfect for families. Let GetSkiing whizz you there for a jolly holiday in the snow!
