Best tips for Söll (SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser-Brixental)
Söll has long been popular with British beginners and intermediates, attracting both youths and families looking for fun of different kinds. The resort is in fact far from ideal for beginners, but the SkiWelt can be a great area for intermediate cruising. Whether it is depends on the snow. If the weather is coming from Russia, this area can have the best snow in the Alps; but usually it isn’t, and the snow may suffer from afternoon thaws and night-time frost. Many visitors are surprised by the small size of the village (in particular, there aren’t many shops) and the long trek out to the slopes. You may prefer to stay near the lifts and trek into the village in the evening. Or you may prefer, like us, to stay in one of the other SkiWelt resorts – Ellmau along the valley (which has its own chapter) or Westendorf over the hill (covered at the end of this chapter), which has quicker access to the Kitzbühel slopes. Söll is a pleasant, friendly village, bypassed by the main valley road; although its chalet-style buildings spread quite widely, the core is compact – you can explore it on foot thoroughly in a few minutes. The resort is part of the vast SkiWelt – one of Austria’s largest ski areas. You can also progress (via Brixen) to the slopes of Kitzbühel; these and various other ski areas within easy reach, such as Waidring, Fieberbrunn and St Johann, are covered by the Kitzbüheler Alpen AllStarCard ski pass.
