The region's state-of-the-art ski lifts will whisk you up to the top of the panoramic mountains in the Kitzbühel Alps. Seat heating ensures ideal comfort. And whenever you need to recharge your batteries, you can stop by one of the many quaint mountain huts in Brixen im Thale, Kirchberg or Westendorf and savour delicious Austrian delicacies during your ski holiday. On this page, you can discover all that awaits you on a winter holiday in the Brixental Valley.
The two Brixental Valley ski areas are located at an ideal altitude of up to 2,000 m above sea level. The region has guaranteed snowfall due to the natural geographic barrier formed by the Tyrolean Northern Alps, which causes clouds to stick around the main Alpine ridge in the Kitzbühel Alps. The region also has snowmaking facilities, which combined with high-tech GPS depth measurement systems, enables efficient snow management on the gentle mountains of the Kitzbühel Alps. In ideal conditions, more than 70% of all ski slopes can be covered with snow and made ready for use in just three days. With such an amazing snow guarantee, there's nothing to stand in the way of an unforgettable ski holiday.
