Ski pass comparison - Super Ski Card vs. local ski pass

What's the difference between the ski passes?

With so many different ski passes, it's easy to lose track. However, there are actually only two main types of ski pass: a local ski pass and the all-in-one Super Ski Card. If you're not certain which ski pass to buy, we have compiled a ski pass comparison and provided a few tips below to help you make the right choice.

Super Ski Card

The all-in-one ski pass for maximum skiing pleasure in Brixen, Kirchberg and Westendorf.

The Super Ski Card offers absolute freedom of choice for ultimate skiing pleasure. As a guest in Brixen, Kirchberg or Westendorf, the card gives you access to two of the best ski areas in Austria: SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser - Brixental and the world famous Kitzbühel/Kirchberg (KitzSki) ski area. The combined ski areas offer more than 500 km of slopes for maximum skiing fun during your ski holiday. So now you're really right in the heart of a ski paradise.

The Super Ski Card is slightly more expensive than a local ski pass for a designated ski resort. If you're looking to explore more than one resort during your holiday, then buying the all-in-one card will save you money - and time required to purchase another local ski pass. Simply rock up and swing down - in any ski area you choose. The Super Ski Card offers you access to some of the most popular ski areas in the Austrian Alps.

The key question:

Which ski pass should I choose?

The answer depends on your individual holiday needs. Families with young children are more likely to choose a local ski pass (e.g. the SkiWelt ski pass or the KitzSki ski pass). Both ski areas have specially designated family slopes - seven days a week. After all, the two Brixental ski areas are among the largest ski areas in the Austrian Alps.

Sporty skiers and families with older children are usually better advised with the all-in-one Super Ski Card. This option is particularly worthwhile for those planning to spend 3 or more ski days in Brixen im Thale, Kirchberg or Westendorf. This is because you'll have access to two ski areas that are almost completely interconnected. (The 500 m gap is bridged by a regular ski bus service between the KiWest cable car station in Westendorf and Pengelstein cable car station in Kirchberg/Aschau). Switching between ski areas is easy. They are just a stone's throw away from each other and with the Super Ski Card you're always good to go.

Advanced and leisure skiers are spoilt for choice. You'll find both ski pass options offer great benefits. In each ski area, you'll find everything you need for an unforgettable ski holiday. So why not explore the region's incredibly diverse slopes and culinary delights, especially when you can have it all with just one ski pass? All you have to do is choose on the ski pass that suits you best.

Quite frankly, if you're on a skiing holiday in one of the best ski regions in the world, wouldn't you want to experience everything the region has to offer without having to think about it? Brixen im Thale, Kirchberg and Westendorf are ideally situated for a winter holiday in Austria - right in the heart of a ski paradise, the Kitzbühel Alps.
