Ellmau has, without doubt, one of the prettiest settings in our programme - nestling between the Kitzbüheler Alps and the majestic Wilder Kaiser mountains. The relaxed village centre has a range of shops and is dotted with cosy bars and cafés. The Astberg skiing has some good runs and gives great views of the Kitzbühel valley. The Hartkaiser links you into the fantastic Ski Welt circuit - this is a great choice of resort for everyone!
Ellmau has great nursery slopes in the village centre. The caring instructors will teach you well so that you will quickly progress on to the many gentle runs in the area.
Ellmau is one of the 8 resorts linked up on the Ski Welt Circuit with 250kms of piste and 93 lifts to choose from. Access to this area is via the Hartkaiser mountain railway from which the entire system fans out and the views are stupendous.
For the advanced skier you will find plenty to choose from both on and off-piste, including the Silleralm descent and the Eiberg slalom run, both on Söll¿s Hohe Salve mountain.
There is an abundance of well groomed piste, 150 miles to be exact. For the carvers amongst you there are some good runs under the funicular to check out. Also Ellmau has some of the best beginners terrain in the area. Don't miss a day or two at the fantastic Westendorf fun park - incl. on the Ski Welt area pass.
