Neukirchen / Wildkogel Summary

The Austrian Ski Resort of Neukirchen / Wildkogel has direct access to 30km19 miles of downhill skiing, with 14 marked pistes, served by a total of 15 ski lifts.

Neukirchen / Wildkogel comprises the villages of Bramberg am Wildkogel and Neukirchen.

Neukirchen / Wildkogel Overview

Neukirchen-am-Grossvenediger propmotes itself as the friendliest ski area in the Alps and it's hard to argue with that. The ski area is compact and best suited to beginners and intermediates, but advanced skiers can head off-piste with a guide if they get tired of the tougher pisted terrain and the giant ski area around the neighbouring Ziller Valley is just on the doorstep.

The main Wildkogel ski area is reached by gondola and trails descend to neighbouring villages such as Bramberg. Much of the terrain is within a north facing bowl so snow conditions are good throughout the season.

The resort itself is medium sized and can be lively. The surrounding scenery of the Hohe Tauern National Park is both beautiful and spectacular.

On the Mountain

The longest possible descent in Neukirchen / Wildkogel is 14km9 miles long.

Skiing in Neukirchen / Wildkogel

Neukirchen has 55km (35 miles) of well groomed blue and red slopes plus a single black. Trail options include an incredible 14km (nine mile) winding blue down to the neighbouring village of Bramberg (you need to take a bus back - free of charge) or the plunging five kilometre (three mile), 1300 vertical metre descent from the top of the lifts back down to the resort centre.

Beginners have nursery slopes by the village and at the top of the gondola when snow is short at village level. With most of the area dominated by easy blue runs it's a great choice for those looking to be progressing around the mountain by the end of their first week, or indeed second week skiers who want something challenging but not too intimidating.

Experts have limited options on the piste but extensive off piste powder fields to enjoy in the company of a guide. Alternatively buy a ticket for the nearby Zillertal Arena, accessed via Wald or Krimml, a short free ski bus ride away and opening up 160km (100 miles) of lift linked skiing. The full Zillertal Superski ticket takes in more ski areas in the Ziller Valley including the Tux glacier and Mayrhofen's big ski area.

Neukirchen / Wildkogel offers good sking, particularly, for Intermediate and Beginner skiers.

Snowboarding in Neukirchen / Wildkogel

A great beginners area for boarders, with easy access by gondola to the powder bowl, but without the intimidating gradients. Both ski schools also offer snowboarding tuition.

More advanced boarders will probably want to head off-piste with a guide to hit steeper powder, or have fun on the resort's boarder - cross course. There are several terrain parks and half pipes at nearby Gerlos, part of the 160km Zillertal Arena a short free ski bus ride away.
