Skiwelt is Austria's BIGGEST linked ski resort. Whilst it might not challenge advanced skiers, for most it is superb. Scheffau is a little quiet, but not everyone wants apres ski until 3am. If you're looking for a family holiday in a village with charm and character and very easy access to the slopes, Scheffau is beautiful.
