Ski Lifts in Westendorf

Westendorf’s ski lifts are a part of the SkiWelt lift system, one of the best lift systems in the Alps. The result is a well-connected ski area served by modern efficient ski lifts which distribute skiers quickly across a ski area totalling 279 km of well-groomed pistes and queuing for the lifts is not an issue.

Westendorf Ski Lifts

There are 91 cable cars and ski lifts across the SkiWelt ski area, including the convenient Hochbrixen gondola which connects Westendorf to the main SkiWelt area. From Westendorf, skiers will typically start the day by taking the Alpenrosenbahn up to Talkaser and, after a few runs in the Westendorf section of the ski area, head down to Brixen to take the Hochbrixen gondola into the central part of the SkiWelt ski area. Skiers wishing to head straight to the heart of the SkiWelt can also make the short journey from Westendorf to Brixen by bus or car to make the Hochbrixen gondola their starting point for the day.
Wherever you are in the ski area, the ski lifts are modern and efficient, making it possible to explore the ski area  Ski Welt ski lifts cater well for visitors of all ages and abilities, with a mix of gondolas, cable cars, chairlifts and drag lifts including gentle surface lifts at the top of the Hochbrixen gondola.
Some of the ski lifts in the area are kept open late for night skiing during peak season, meaning there is plenty of activity on the mountain late into the evening, particularly around Soll and Going.

Westendorf Lift Passes

Visitors to Westendorf have two main options when purchasing their lift pass – the SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser Brixental pass which provides access to the whole of the SkiWelt (279 km), or the even more generous Kitzbuheler Alpen All-Star Card, which gives access to ten different ski areas and more than 1,000 km of pistes.
The SkiWelt ski area alone is big enough to satisfy most skiers for a week or more. The All-Star Card lift pass costs only a little more and is an interesting and worthwhile option for more adventurous skiers.
