Kitzbuhel is a unique place in the Austrian Alps, which combines the features of a romantic town in the middle of high mountains with the prestige of a modern ski resort. Skiing in Kitzbuhel is a dream of many skiers.

The entire ski area of Kitzbuhel with the surrounding Kirchberg, Jochberg, Aschau and even Hollersbach and Mittersill, offers over 160 km of ski trails of various degrees of difficulty. Skiing in the Kitzbuhel region is above all a wide range of slopes for skiers with average and good skills. However, very experienced skiers will also find many attractions for themselves. They will mainly enjoy Streif, one of the most difficult runs, used by professionals during the World Cup. Off-piste skiing fans can choose from several secured and controlled off-piste routes located in various parts of the resort. The whole region is quite extensive. Many skiers go on whole day trips from Kitzbühel, through Pass Thurn to Hollersbach. If for some the Kitzbuhel ski area will be too small, in the town of Kirchberg the lower station of the Ki-West gondola has been set up, which connects Kitzbuhel with the ski slopes of Westendorf and the rest of the SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser region.

Snowboarders have at their disposal the DC Snowpark in Kitzbuehel, where various types of installations have been prepared along a length of 600 m.

As for cross-country skiing, there are 120 km of ski runs, the longest of which is 30 km long and leads from Kirchberg to Westendorf.

The Kitzbuhel ski area is located a short distance from Salzburg. The main town is, of course, Kitzbuhel. Although it is a small town, during the season it can accommodate a huge number of tourists, who are fond of this spot. The charming, medieval old town is a landmark of the city and has a typical alpine character. There are a lot of restaurants here offering local cuisine, and above all wellness resorts and casinos, focused more on tourists with bigger wallets. Not far off from Kitzbuhel is Kirchberg, which has an equally high level of services and an extensive accommodation offer. The nearby Aurach is a small village, a typical Tyrolean place for lovers of peace and quiet. At night you can also stay in Mittersill, slightly off from the valley, but connected by a network of trails and lifts.

The après-ski offer is extremely rich. Numerous casinos, cinemas, bars and clubs are just a prelude to the evening attractions. Among the interesting variety of activities are balloon flights, toboggan tracks, rafting, aquaparks, ice rinks, hockey, as well as tennis and squash. In the region of Kitzbuhel there is also an air sports center.

Kitzbuhel Alps ski resort reviews

Can't really complain about the snow conditions this year, as everywhere the situation was quite bad. Although there wasn't much snow off-piste, the slopes were in very good condition - even if it was +13C and sunshine up in the mountain :) Perfect weather for just enjoying the mountain views. The new lifts really made a difference. Back in 2004 - although I liked the old chair lifts - the queues were quite long. Now with the new 6-8 person chairlifts, there was absolutely no queues. The restaurants (many of them) in the ski area provided very good service, good food and reasonable prices.
The ski school is second to none. We put in our children, who had never even had skis on their feet. They were both skiing confidently within hours. By the third day they were doing blue runs with us on the mountain. Very expensive town, but there are some budget and cheaper restaurants with fabulous food for families to go to. We never had a bad meal. Even the food and drink on the mountain was faultless. The night life was highly entertaining and has something for every one and all budgets. Definitely want to go back next year (if I can afford it!).
We went late in the season so knew what to expect. Very picturesque...but then Austria is one of our favourite places. Really pleased we had the Alpin Card as part of an upgrade so we travelled to Worgl on the day we didn't ski. Loved it...but it passed too quickly!
Most of the slopes were closed due to heavy snowfall, and the rest of the working slopes had many bumps! We had a super ski-pass and we were able to go also to Ski Welt area, where most of the slopes were open.
Lovely resort - very friendly atmosphere, skiing conditions very good, slopes not too busy (March). The hutte on the ski slopes were welcoming and good value.
