Ski school & Ski rental

Our ski school has been open since Friday, the 25th of December and remains open by appointment at this time. Private Ski & Snowboard lessons can be booked, for both children and adults. Group lessons are unfortunately not possible, due to the strict corona rules.

The ski rental is also open by appointment.

For more information or to make an appointment, please contact us by email at or by phone at +43 (0)664 99439038.

Lock down

According to the latest press conference (February 12), all hotels, apartments and restaurants will remain closed at least until early March. Non-essential stores ( commercial) and physical services such as hairdressers may reopen subject to the requirement of a negative corona test of up to 48 hours.

Also, a 10-day quarantine requirement currently applies for entering Austria, with “free testing” only possible on day 5. An online registration document is also mandatory.

The ski area Skiwelt Wilder Kaiser-Brixental will remain open! From Monday to Friday the connections between the different villages are closed. On the weekend these will also open.

Expected opening for tourism

It is expected that tourism will slowly pick up again from the beginning of March 2021.

The UK currently issues a negative travel advice until mid-March. This means that upon returning to the UK a quarantine obligation will apply.

Winter sports and COVID-19 in general

Skiing and snowboarding takes place outdoors and are therefore sports where little contact is made with others. Because of this, the risk of contamination is low and winter sports are very well possible, taking into account the corona measures! Surely you don’t want to miss your week of skiing this year?

The corona measures have been drawn up in cooperation with the entrepreneurs in Westendorf and the tourist information centre Kitzbühler Alpen. Below you will find an overview of these measures for winter 2020/21.

Corona measures Westendorf Winter 2020/21


  • Different guest groups must keep at least 2 meter distance from each other.
  • Employees in direct contact with guests must wear mouth and nose protection.
  • Guests must wear mouth and nose protection in public areas accessible to all.

Ski schools

  • Groups not larger than 10 persons. This means even faster learning, even more fun and even more skiing.
  • Start times may change slightly. So we can make sure that we get to the first elevator with less.
  • Lunch can also take place at a different time.
  • As a precaution, all ski instructors are tested once a week on COVID-19. This way we can guarantee the safety of our guests and ski instructors.
  • As little change of ski classes as possible in between.
  • Mouth caps/Buffs are mandatory during the lessons.
  • In order to be able to act correctly with someone who tests positive for corona, we note the details of everyone who follows our lessons. Of course, we follow the rules of data protection.


  • Wearing a FFP2 mask is mandatory in gondolas and chairlifts with a cover.
  • Keep a minimum distance of 2 meter in front of the ski elevator (From the 24th of January).


  • Background music only.
  • Eating and drinking is only done sitting down at the table.
  • All guests must register via a QR code in each bar and restaurant. This also applies to ski rentals and hotels.
