We've been coming to Ellmau every winter since February 2015. At first we were spending Christmas in the also lovely village of Niederau (some 25 minutes driving south west of Ellmau), and the February half term holiday in Ellmau. But we have come to love Ellmau so much, that from this winter we have been spending both our December and... More

What a lovely little village. Very compact but good access to other villages with a good network of lifts. Can be crowded early on but it soon settles down and there's plenty of space for everyone. Regular free ski buses running through the village all day.

The facilities are world class, the variety of ski run options from beginners through to the experts. Wide open ski runs all perfectly groomed, to narrow winding roads for the adventurous. The ski routes enable you to travel many kilometres to numerous restaurants/rest areas. It would take years of holidaying there to see them all. I thought the prices in... More

What better than the whole area home run challenge? You will NOT (I have never in 45 years) find a better ski area, ever! A whole day blast from Ellmau to Brixen home run, up to Westendorf and their home run to the village, back up to the top again and another home run back to Brixen. Gondola up to... More

Great resort with lots of blue runs and the usual ski bus to take you to the other gondola's . There is also a great toboggan run too that seems to last for ages. Everything is in walking distance and the bars are friendly and not expensive as the french. Book tours as soon as possible as we missed out... More

A very pretty, self contained village with the most spectacular views. If you are on a budget, the best place to eat is at the cafe right next to the MPREIS supermarket. Half a chicken in a roll for 3.5 euro.

We visited this region for 3rd time. The end of January 2017 was the best- the weather, the snow conditions- very, very, very the best. Not crowded slopes, 5 days of 100% sun, ski in- ski out from frau Steger apartments.

The ski area is vast with loads of slopes. More blue slopes at Ellmau than at Soll. Slopes very quiet this week, no queues but apres ski a little quiet.
