Resort Information

Arguably the most beautiful ski town in Europe, Kitzbühel , basking in the backdrop of the Wilder Kaiser Mountains, attracts skiers and non-skiers from around the world, an amazing number of which descending upon the town each year as it hosts the most famous World Cup downhill ski race – the Hahnenkamm.
The Hahnenkamm directly above the town is still the highlight, but it’s just one of several mountains with runs weaving down through the trees, the others being Pengelstein, Wurzhohe, Resterhohe, Kitzbüheler Horn, Gaisberg and Bichlalm.
The ski area, includes the nearby villages of Kirchberg and Jochberg. The SkiWelt , a short bus ride from its edge, opens up a further huge area to explore.
Despite Kitzbuhel sitting at only 760m above sea level, the snow is kept remarkably well during the winter season. This is primarily due to it’s predominantly north-west orientation, keeping the snow out the sun for most of the day.

Useful Information

Beginners
Unfortunately the local nursery slopes in Kitzbühel are slightly limited and despite the best snowmaking efforts, the snow quality can suffer. There are similar areas in all of the villages in the valley but the same issue persists. Higher up however there is a decent gentle zone on the Kitzbüheler Horn, where there is also good progression on to longer blues. Elsewhere, Pengelstein is probably the best bet for gentle blues within the main ski area.
Intermediates
There’s a huge array of runs for intermediates in the resort, but some of the slopes can get crowded – especially on the Hahnenkamm. Despite the modest
altitude, you can notch up some serious vertical on the Pengelstein sector by
skiing down to Skirast and also on the Kitzbüheler Horn. Take the 3S across
towards Pass Thurn for the quietest slopes, including the highest piste in the
resort at the aptly named Zweitausender.
