Kitzbühel is famous for having one of the most demanding runs of the FIS downhill calender, the Hahnenkamn. Extensive coverage of snow making now compensates for the lowish altitude (Kitzbühel used to struggle during mild seasons.) 165 km of piste are pitched at the beginner-intermediate but the off-piste and bump skiing is also pretty good. Considerable investment in new lifts, at Kitzbühel, has reduced problems with queues. Off the piste, Kitzbühel is attractive and large enough to provide plenty of interesting diversions for non-skiers. A good choice of hotels, bars and restaurants makes for a great apres-ski environment at Kitzbühel.

Visitor Reviews of Kitzbühel

Daragh from Ireland writes:

We stayed in St Johann but skied most days in Kitzbuhel. Getting there by train is easy and the train station is beside the bottom lift station .There was limited snow at the time we stayed but with the use of snow cannons and fantastic grooming, it made for a great few days skiing. Great food and great fun. We will come back again.
The only complaint was from the snow boarder in our group who thought that there was too many flat sections on some pistes.
