The SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser - Brixental is connected to the skiing area Kitzbühel by the “Ki-West” train in Westendorf. Together with other connected skiing areas it represents the third largest skiing area throughout Europe, the so called “Top Ski Kitzbüheler Alpen”. All skiing areas are accessible via one ski pass. Figures reveal what this area has to offer: 356 funicular railways, more than 700 km of ski slopes, 200 lodges and mountain restaurants… in order to explore the entire area you might need a very long vacation!
