“Suitable for Non-skiers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

We visited Ellmau when there was a lot of snow.
If you don't ski and perhaps have a partner that does, there are lots of Winter Walks that are very good with graded snow tracks and truly beautiful views with a few places to stop for a warming coffee or chocolate.

“Large ski area with something for everyone”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

Ellmau is linked to the Ski-Welt which is a very large ski area, linked to various other villages such as Soll and Westendorf. Despite it's reputation for being a litlle undemanding for more experienced skiers, I personally think it caters pretty well for everyone. It is also (for a ski resort) amazingly good value for money. The slopes are superbly well maintained, and there is ample snow making to ensure there is always pleny of snow. We have been to the ski-welt region 3 years in a row now, and there has always been plent of snow. Ellmau is a lovely village and is a tremendous base for your skiing holiday, particularly families

“Ski Resort”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

So many options to choose from and the ski instructors for the kids were excellent.

Blue slopes are a bit difficult - but it still remains one of the best skiing areas in Austria.

“Excellent base”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

If you're a skier and want to enjoy the full scope of the Ski Welt area Ellmau is hard to better. Good and easy access to the slopes as well as a good range of local facilities. Very little to do for the non skier or on the days off
