For five years, we have had an apartment in close proximity to the Smaragdbahn which is one of the food lanes of the Wildkogel Arena. It is located in the village of Bramberg, the other is about 5 min away by ski bus in the village of Neukirchen. Both villages are genuine Austrian villages located in a delta surrounding the Salzach river. On the south side of the river lies Austria's largest nature reserve Hohe Tauern with many dramatic peaks and on the northernmost southern part of the Kitzbühel Alps, a bit softer alps. The Wildkogel system itself is 1200m up on the north side. A pot of ridge heights of between 1500 and 2100 m. If it has snowed, it gives a veritable playhouse for off-road enthusiasts without having to climb or be afraid of avalanches / dumps etc. Otherwise, it's a great system for families with children and younger youngsters who can go out on your own but still check out where the lunch restaurant is located. Wildkogel Arena has invested a lot in its artificial snowfall to ensure pedestrians even when the weather does not really want to. There is a large solar cell park to electrically supply the entire facility.

The system has a good lift capacity and there are many restaurants / huts. The atmosphere is internationally family oriented, you definitely do not need to lock the skis. The rental (Sports 2000 in Bramberg, there are several) have great service and high quality products if you wish (ask for Peter).

Ski buses run in different directions, including to the neighboring town of Hollersbach (10 min) where there is a connection lift to the Kitzbüheler system.
The valley is flat so driving is not going to be difficult, some passes of simple passes should be crossed if you want to go to other places see below *

Since this year, there is also a SuperskiSalzburg / Kitzbüheler Alpen-lift card, which allows you to buy a weekly map for a giant area, which will be much cheaper than day passes if you move around. (Check their website for discounts if you buy early.)

* We are a great skiing and alp-winning couple in the 60's with two sons over 20. We bring the car and everything rent and use Bramberg as a starting point. There are about 8 major systems within an hour's driving radius.

In summer there are numerous hiking trails in Hohe Tauern and the Kitzbüheler Aplen, there are also many trails for mountain bikes. More about it another time.
