Ski Holidays in Kitzbuhel, Austria

Kitzbuhel is absolutely synonymous with Austrian skiing. Situated in a ‘snow corner’ of the Alps, the fashionable resort of Kitzbühel presents a state of the art ski circuit covering 170km of pistes.

Famous above all for the Men’s Downhill Race on the Hahnenkamm, this lively and sophisticated resort has something for everyone, from young to old and from beginner to expert. Non-skiers on a ski holiday in Kitzbühel can enjoy well-prepared walking paths or join an excursion to the historic cities of Salzburg or Innsbruck.

Kitzbühel Ski Resort

Dating back to the 14th century, Kitzbühel’s painted medieval houses, stylish shops, concealed passageways and charming cafes are fascinating to explore. Kitzbühel is often regarded as an ‘up market’ or ’swanky’ with its designer shops, superior lift system and rich heritage but it still has the friendly Austrian spirit at it’s heart which makes Kitzbühel great for families.

Skiing in Kitzbühel

The ski area is spread over 2 mountain sides, the majority of the ski area is located up the Hahnenkamm, where you can ski all the way down to Kirchberg and Aschau, plus all the way over the 3S gondola to the Pass Thurn side. The second ski mountain is the Kitzbüheler Horn which only has a handful of pistes, but it is quieter making it a brilliant beginner ski area.

An excellent free bus system operates through all the villages across the Kitzbuhel piste map. There is a regular bus that runs between the Hahnenkamm gondola and Kitzbüheler Horn, and buses that run throughout the day from Pass Thurn back to Kitzbuhel town (less frequent during the middle of the day), allowing you to catch the bus back if you don't have the time to ski across to the 3S gondola.

Powder lovers and freeriders will love the Kitzbuhel terrain. There are many slopes with deep snow below the tree line, wide powder fields and tree line routes making it an off piste paradise. With so many opportunities it is always best to book a guide or instructor to take you to the best spots on the mountain.
