Scheffau Ski Resort Guide & Piste Map
Scheffau Resort Description
Scheffau, like many of the neighbouring villages, was originally settled by farmers and the name comes from its farming background (literally, a crooked or tilted meadow). The first ski lift was built in the 1960s, but tourism in the village really took off with the construction of a ski lift up to the Brandstadl and the connection to the main SkiWelt area.
Scheffau is a small village with fewer hotels and guesthouses than the more developed villages nearby, but with a large number of private houses and apartments on offer as vacation rentals.
There is a small draglift in the village, but the main Scheffau skiing is located at the top of either gondola lift which starts on the other side of the main road.
Scheffau is easily reached from the airports of Salzburg and Innsbruck. Munich is also relatively simplly accessed via the Inn valley motorway and then over the border into Germany at Kufstein.
