The piste map remains hopelessly over-ambitious in trying to show the whole SkiWelt area in a single view. Some complain of poor and confusing signposting. Most slopes are heavily wooded, with a mix of short runs at altitude and much longer ones to the villages.

Slopes

  • Resort altitude: 800m
  • Lower slopes: 620m
  • Upper slopes: 1955m
  • Total pistes: 280km

For beginners

Ellmau has an array of good nursery slopes covered by snow-guns. The main ones are at the Going end, but there are some by the road to the funicular. The Astberg chair opens up a more snow-sure plateau at altitude. The Brandstadl area has a section of short easy runs.

For intermediates

With good snow, the SkiWelt is a paradise for those who love easy cruising. There are lots of blue runs, and many of the reds deserve a blue classification. It is a big area, and you get a feeling of travelling around. In good snow the long red runs to the valley - down the Hartkaiser funicular, for example - are excellent. The main challenge arises when ice and slush can make even gentle lower slopes tricky. For timid intermediates Astberg is handy.

For advanced

There is a ski route from Brandstadl down to Scheffau and a little mogul field between Brandstadl and Neualm, but the main challenges are in going off-piste.
