Kitzbuhel - Information

Resort Information  Kitzbühel

In the World of skiing there are few better-known resorts than Kitzbühel. The resort offers all the skiing and après ski you could wish for. The slopes are fabulous and varied, the facilities both on and off the slope excellent and its nightlife as wild as you want it to be. The town is picture postcard perfect too, with its medieval walls, church spires and painted shop fronts. Add to this, the World’s most famous ski race, the annual Hahnenkamm World Cup Downhill, and you have the stuff of legend. Mere mortals can take on much of the route of the Hahnenkamm too, as it forms part of the tremendous Kitzbühel Ski Circus. There is a great selection of accommodation on offer in the resort, from bargain rooms to 5-star deluxe hotels. The resort is also easily accessible, so if you can’t make it for a week, it is also practical for a weekend break. Kitzbühel is therefore, a great location for a ski or snowboard holiday, for all levels.It is a great resort for intermediates, with dozens of blue and red trails, but there is much to interest more advanced skiers and snowboarders too. There are several areas in which to ski, the largest of which is that accessed by the Hahnenkamm gondola, which rises from close to the town centre. Across town another gondola heads up to the Kitzbüheler Horn, which has some enjoyable slopes and is one of the best areas for beginners. Those looking for a spot of cruising should head towards the wide-open spaces of Pass Thurn. For advanced skiers there are some steeps and moguls at Ehrenbachgraben, but it is probably worth considering hiring a guide and looking for excitement off-piste. The Hahnenkamm itself is a must and much of it, apart from the most dangerous steeps, is open to the public when the racing isn’t on. In total, the Kitzbühel Ski Circus covers over 148km of piste, so there is plenty to keep almost everyone busy for a week or more. Plus the Ski area of Westendorf is now extended to meet the Kitzbuhel area at Aschau, with an eight seat gondola from there up to the gampen sector of Westendorf.
