Kelchsau | A Small Family Ski Area in the Tyrol

The small family ski area of Kelchsau is tucked away in a side valley in the middle of the SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser – Brixental in the Tyrol.

Easy slopes, inexpensive ski passes and cosy huts for refreshments are the hallmarks of the Kelchsau ski area. Skiing here is almost like it was 40 years ago, when ski resorts were much smaller. The facilities in Kelchsau are, of course, state-of-the-art: four lifts open up 16 kilometres of pistes. If that’s not enough, head to the Skiwelt Wilder Kaiser – Brixental and the ski resorts of Westendorf or Söll, where there are 284 kilometres of pistes to experience.

Smaller beginner skiers are in good hands at the Alpine Ski School, where children from the age of three can playfully familiarise themselves with skis and snow. For the older ones, there’s a varied programme during the ski course days including events such as a treasure hunt or ski races.

The Kelchsau ski area has its own low-cost ski pass. In addition, Skiwelt Wilder Kaiser – Brixental offers a range of advantageous offers for families. These include the flexible Jungfamilien ski pass for parents with small children and the FamilienSkiWochen (Family Ski Weeks) with free ski passes for children and young people up to the age of 15. Children under the age of six are generally free on the ski lifts in the region.
