To locals and insiders, the Wilder Kaiser is of course known as one half of the two mountain brothers, the Wilder Kaiser (wild emperor) and Zahmer Kaiser (tame emperor). Others will learn on site that the Tyrolean Kaiser Mountains are composed of two striking mountain ranges.
Ellmau is located directly in Austria’s largest skiing area, the SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser-Brixental. The slopes and sledge track lead to the village centre, where a great atmosphere reigns all winter long in comfy bars and during night skiing on the Ellmau Ski Night. Great emphasis is also put on winter sports in the neighbouring villages of Going, Scheffau and Söll.
The Wilder Kaiser region is great: 90 cable cars and state-of-the-art lifts make 288 kilometres of slopes accessible. Perfectly prepared slopes invite all to energetic carving and relaxed breaks in over 70 huts. The ski area is known for its wide range of easy and medium-difficulty slopes, so perfect for beginners and families. And snow is guaranteed: over 1,700 snow machines mean that 229 km of slopes can be artificially snowed.
