Map of the Ski slopes in Westendorf

   

Beginners - Very Good

With the convenience of the slopes and a ski school that specialises in teaching beginners even those of us with two left feet will be negotiating the blue slopes with confidence.

Intermediate - Very Good

With so many lifts to choose from, queues are rarely a problem. Pistes are wide open and scenic with evenly sloping gradients in every direction.

Advanced (Skiwelt is Excellent)

With 250km of skiing, even advanced skiers will be happy with the choices. At certain times, the off-piste skiing is great! Guided services availalable to neighbouring resorts.

 


Après Ski
The Après Ski (after ski – although for some that’s just a suggestion) activities will form an important part of your holiday. Join the locals and your fellow travellers in swapping stories about the days skiing (was it REALLY a black run??) over a spicy glüwein or a hot chocolate (rum optional) and get your legs out of the snow-plough position!

Pubs in Westendorf:
> The Village Pub (or as they say in Austria …. The Willage Pub)
> The Wunder Bar… you know where that’s going don’t you…? okay here it is – The Wonder Bra!
> The Moskito Bar
> Inns Moment where you can enjoy live music
> Gerry’s – get up on the tables and dance
> The Kibo Bar for a more chilled out atmosphere

Resort Activities:
If you’re not taking to the slopes you might want to try one or more of the following:

> Sleigh Rides
> Ice Skating
> Tobogganing
> 9 Pin Bowling
> Winter walks
> Tyrolean evenings
> Pop across to neighbouring Kitzbühel (17km away) for the day
> Day trips to Innsbruck and Salzburg!

Eating Out:
Tyrolean fare is robust, extremely tasty and very filling – not much is Weigh-less approved! Favourites include Tyroler Grostl, a combination of potatoes, onions, bacon and cheese cooked slowly and served in a pan, strudels, pancake soup and the typical schnitzel and pommes. Because the resort is small, you may find yourself sharing a table with patrons from other countries – a huge amount of fun, especially when interesting translations surface! Please remember that pork is the main ingredient in most meals – as an alternative, chicken is available. Price wise, your average meal will set you back Euros 8-12 and a soft drink approximately 2-3.50 Euros at Westendorf Austria. Beers would be around 3.50. For those who feel peckish or those in self catering accommodation, there is a friendly Spar close to the centre of the village where you can pick up all goods relative to the prices in South Africa.
