Kitzbühel ski resort, Austria

ski hotels

One of the most popular ski resorts in the world, Kitzbühel offers the most difficult downhill ski trail -- the famous (or infamous!) Streif! Don't let that scare you away though. Of the 60 groomed trails, there are runs available for every skill level. Beginner? Hit the ski schools and you'll be carving in no time. Expert? The ungroomed trails are your friend. Here you'll find deep powder and plenty of trees to keep you on your toes.   

Kirzbuhel ski resort


Just like Monaco on the Formula One Grand Prix circuit, Kitzbühel is one of the classic stops on the World Cup skiing tour with its Hahnenkamm race, famous for breaking bones, dreams and making men look like boys. It is not all death-defying ski runs in Kitzbühel as there are 170 kilometers of runs and over 50 lifts to choose from. Even the world famous Hahnenkamm slope is a red run for most of its path and eminently skiable for most average skiers. It is only when the army gets to work on it for the race, spraying it with water; that it takes on its infamous leg-breaking nature.

Kitzbühel’s village is a picture-postcard Tyrolean affair with its wooden lodges, quaint farmhouses and charming streets. Home of the legendary Londoner pub, there are also other equally lively après-ski bars and nightclubs in the village and some great traditional restaurants. With the Wilder Kaiser Mountains as a backdrop, shopaholics are well catered for in the village with a number of high-class boutiques that could rival Fifth Avenue.

Kitzbühel’s lift pass covers ten nearby ski systems, including Austria’s largest interconnected area, The SkiWelt. It also covers famous villages like Saalbach-Hinterglemm, Zell Am See and the glacier at Kaprun-Kitzsteinhorn. As the ski area extends to over 2000 meters, snow is more or less guaranteed and the off-piste opportunities are not to be sniffed at.
