Fantastic views. Lots to do for the children who were aged between 5 and 11. This is one of the best mountain top activities out of the local ones on offer.

Skiwelt is my favourite Ski Area. It is an extensive area made up of many ski resorts. I personally love Scheffau and Ellmau. Love the long blue runs.

Hello Karin, SkiBus are quite regular in Soll. However, that depends on where you are staying. My experience in Soll is that the bus services are frequent. You might find more information on SkiBus from Skiwelt website. Alex

Hello All, Can anyone compare above 3 ski resort for an advanced skier? Can you mention also your favorite villages to stay for all three resorts? Thank you,

Response fromnakagoli|
all are similar, but for an experienced skier, brixen might be the best as it has more slopes but also connects with the kitzbuhel ski safari leading to quite high and difficult slopes at pass thurn. but it might be better to stay in kirchberg which is just a bit further along the valley from brixen. that way you are at a point between ski welt and ski safari with connection both ways.

Ski Pass (25 Replies)
Hi All, 11 of us arriving in Soll 11th March for a week's skiing. I will probably do 2 days ski school (intermediate) skier and then join some of the group to ski ourselves. I am thinking of booking the Skiwelt Wilder Kaiser Brixental Area Pass, but if I do decide to go further afield towards the end of the week is it possible to add onto it to get the Kitzbuheler Alpen All Star Card Area Pass?

Response fromnakagoli|
no. you have to get the all star pass at the start. it only adds around 10€ to the price.
