Kitzbühel - unquestionably one of the all-time great resorts of world skiing

Few ski resorts have the charisma of this iconic resort, with its celebrated Kitzbühel downhill, the Streif run on the famous Hahnenkamm – arguably the most challenging World Cup downhill in the world (don’t try to ski it  - at least not from the top!).  And yet…most of the other slopes in this extensive ski area provide excellent but relatively unthreatening terrain for most skiers and snowboarders. Astonishingly, a further 1088km of skiing is available in the wider Kitzbüheler Alps Area. An exciting  day on the neighbouring Kitzbüheler Horn is recommended! Kitzbühel ski resort’s charm, sophistication and alpine beauty are unquestionable – particularly its walled medieval town centre - but what really makes this a world class resort is the sheer variety of the slopes. Skiing in Kitzbühel alone offers a well-connected and well-balanced 234kms of skiing, striking chords through tranquil blues around the Fleckalmbahn or more demanding terrain around the Hahnenkamm. For the adventurous, or those still wanting more, the spoils of the Ski Welt region’s 284kms can be effortlessly reached via Westendorf with the Kitzbüheler Alps Superski Card. World- class skiing and a world-class resort make up the ideal recipe for Kitzbühel ski holidays that will not disappoint.

Beginners skiing in Kitzbühel

There are several nursery slopes and the main area is conveniently located at the base of the Hahnenkamm. With the help of the ‘Red Devils’ ski school in Kitzbühel, learning is made easy and great fun. What makes this area unique is that you won't move off the free beginners area until your 2nd day.

Intermediates skiing in Kitzbühel

The choice of blue and red runs is extensive with lots of wide open slopes on the Kitzbüheler Horn and the scenic area of Pass Thurn. The Hahnenkamm has a large interlinked network of lifts which encompasses the areas of Kirchberg, Aschau, Aurach, Jochberg and Pass Thurn. A further 800km plus additional runs can be explored with the Super Ski Card. 

Advanced skiing in Kitzbühel

The ultimate challenge is the ‘Streif’ with its vertical ‘Mäusefalle’ which even the ski racers fear. Off-piste skiing is also good and varied, one of the best areas is at Pass Thurn, where modern lifts carry skiers towards the Resterhöhe area for some of the finest skiing in the region.

Snowboarding in Kitzbühel

Kitzbühel’s two snowparks offer plenty of fun and challenges, as do the various special snowboarding pistes provided throughout the area. The XL Qpark has several rails, kickers and boxes. The park can be located by the Hanglalm by Pass thurn. 

Our favourite run

'The Hahnenkamm run in Kitzbühel - it remains one of the iconic challenges. Stopping and looking down from the top of the Mouse Trap is one of those moments that gives you some measure of the incredible courage of the top downhill racers' (Anni Mothes, Product Manager Austria).


There are several walking options around the Kitzbuhel area - both on and off the mountain (70km+)
