Ski area Kitzbühel

Ski area Kitzbühel

With 185 kilometres of piste, the "Kitzbühel" lift pass offers perfect ski enjoyment. The chair lift "Resterhöhe" starts directly at Pass Thrun, the panoramic gondola directly in Hollersbach im Tal - the ideal connection to the ski area with its 57 lifts, which bring you comfortably to the pistes on Gaisberg, Pengelstein, Hahnenkamm, Kitzbüheler Horn and Resterhöhe, and up to 2,000 m.

The speed, carving and slalom slopes are special attractions, with the highlight being the steepest competitive slope in the world, the Streif - a must for passionate winter athletes! This also where the annual Hahnenkamm race takes place. With the 3S cable car a fantastic interconnected ski area has been created, which offers you the opportunity to use the pistes from Krichberg, via Kitzbühel and Jochberg, right up to the Skiarena Resterhöhe in Pass Thurn.

The "Mercedes-Benz Snowpark" is a true boarders paradise: with quarter-pipe, tables, slides and jumps on the Hanglalm a snowboarder's heart will definitely beat faster.

The easy runs on Gaisberg, Ehrenbachhöhe and Pengelstein are ideal for families. All around Bichlalm, Pengelstein and Steinbergkogel, there are numerous marked ski routes for all skill levels, as well as excellent deep-powder runs off-piste.

A special highlight in this ski area are the 40 free Wi-Fi hotspots it offers for all its visitors! Only a few easy steps are required to access the Internet and you can instantly supply your friends and family with your holiday news and photos.

For those who live for variety, we recommend the "Super Ski Card" lift pass (see ski region), which is also valid in the ski areas of e.g. Wilder Kaiser - Brixental, Schneewinkel and "Ski Juwel" (Alpbachtal - Wildschönau). You can enjoy 23 ski regions in Tyrol and Salzburg on 2,750 km of pistes.

Night skiing Pass Thurn

There are numerous night ski areas in Austria, and also the Kitzbühel ski area has night skiing pistes. One night ski piste can be found at Gaisberg lift, and it is open for night skiing every Thursday and Friday between 18:30 and 21:00. The approx. 1.5 km illuminated ski piste gives you the opportunity to go night skiing. Alternatively, night-time tobogganing is available at Gaisberghang. The evening ticket for night skiing is for free once per stay for those who have a lift pass valid for at least 6 days. Otherwise the evening ticket for night skiing and night tobogganing can be acquired in resort. You can also look forward to a cosy stop during or after night-time skiing fun at Gaisbergstüberl, which is open until 23:30.

Après ski Pass Thurn

Kitzbühel is known beyond its borders for its incomparable après ski. Already in the ski area and at the valley stations, numerous ski lodges invite you in for refreshment, such as the "Sonnenbergalm" or "Tonis Hütte". Famous-notorious spots in resort include the "5erl", "Pavillon", "Londoner" and "Klausenfalle", where après ski is claimed to be founded. Later in the evening you can move on to the "Highways" or "Jimmy's". Numerous restaurants entice guests to dine and enjoy international cuisine.

The resort doesn't just attract fun-oriented visitors, but also nature lovers. The wonderful mountains can be experienced on hiking trails along the frozen ponds and lakes, or on a snowshoe tour over the region's loveliest hills. Special highlights on these hiking tours are the trails along the Hintersteuerberg or along the unique lake promenade of Lake Schwarz. If the ice is thick enough, the lake also invites you to take a twirl on skates and does not only make children's eys sparkle. The lighted 3.5 km long toboggan run at Gaisberg/Kirchberg is also a great experience, as is a horse-drawn sleigh ride or a torchlight hike through the snowy landscape.

In Mittersill cosy restaurants and bars invite you to relax. Besides various recreational sports offers, you can also enjoy the wonderful winter landscape during a romantic sleigh ride.
