The Wildkogel Arena Ski Area

A paradise for families, rookies and returning skiers

The Wildkogel Arena, our family-friendly ski area in the Hohe Tauern National Park Holiday Region, offers a magical snow-sports experience for beginners and experienced skiers on 64 km of beautifully groomed pistes. With the Wildkogelbahn lift in Neukirchen and the Smaragdbahn in Bramberg, you will be able to enjoy a comfortable ride up to 2100 m above sea level, where you will be greeted by glorious views of the 3,000-meter peaks of the Hohe Tauern range.

Once at the top - whether you prefer a more-laid back experience or an exciting high-speed adventure on skis, want to cut your own tracks through the deep-snow on your snowboard or set out on a ski tour through virgin nature - the Wildkogel Arena, in the heart of the Kitzbühel Alps, promises ideal conditions for a wide selection of winter sports. Due to a full range of difficulty, with slopes that are mainly rated "blue" or "red", the multiple-award-winning ski area on the Wildkogel is ideally suited for families, beginners and those returning to the sport after a bit of a hiatus. And for your added enjoyment, other extended ski areas, such as the Zillertal Arena and the Kitzbühel Alps - with around 300 kilometers of pistes in total - are also located close by. Likewise, winter hikers and sun worshipers also discover their own piece of heaven with us.

10-passanger gondola lift "Ganzer X-press"

For even greater quality, comfort and multiple-award-winning skiing enjoyment, the Wildkogel lift company is building the new 10-passenger gondola lift known as the “Ganzer X-press”. The new “Ganzer X-press” 10-passenger gondola lift runs from the Ganzer Grundalpe to the top of the Pfeifferköpfl, crossing the line of the existing Pfeifferköpfl 6-seater chairlift and requiring construction of a new mountain station some 60 meters west of the existing mountain station of the Pfeifferköpfl lift.

The project will result in the creation of some 2.5 km of new pistes, which will also be equipped with snowmaking capability.
