Ski Lifts in Ellmau

From the village of Ellmau, it is possible to start the day on the shorter drag lifts and work over to the main lift to Astberg out of Going. From there it’s a run down to the bottom of the funicular back in Ellmau and then up to the Hartkaiser hub. Most people ride the free ski bus to the funicular and head straight up to Hartkaiser.

Once at the Hartkaiser, the full system of 51 lifts and 41 drags is open. The pistes are numbered relative to the lifts they service and the signposting is, on the whole, excellent. One or two runs are, effectively, cul-de-sacs but this is only an issue if you’re approaching the end of the day.

To ski back to the Ellmau at the end of the day, it’s easiest to ski to the bottom of the funicular and then ride the adjacent 90 lift and you have a choice of skiing 100d or 84 back to the nursery slopes in the middle of the village.
