Skiing and snowboarding in Kitzbühel

The wide uncrowded runs are best for intermediates – although there are runs to suit all abilities. As a beginner you’ll get to know the passionate local ski instructors – they’ll enjoy showing you the areas beauty on open gentle slopes.

The Hahnenkamm lift is where you’ll access the Kitzbühel Alps for a large variety of runs. You’ll find the Hahnenkamm Streif – the Ski World Cup’s most famous downhill run. It’s used in January for the Ski World Cup – attracting visitors from all over the world. You’ll need to be very experienced – at least if you try it from the top.

You’ll have the option of the less crowded Kitzbüheler horn – on the opposite side of the valley. Great for a warm up ski – before tackling the daring runs in the afternoon. Beginners will enjoy the snowpark here and there are plenty of marked trails for freeriders and snowboarders.

If you’re looking for off- piste powder skiing Pass Thurn in nearby Jochberg is the place. While you’re there we recommend a stop off at Bruggeralm– you’ll enjoy this traditional farmhouse serving Gröstl, Schnitzel, Pancakes and Ribs. Be sure to try the powder run all the way back to Jochberg.
