A top Austrian resort both on and off the slopes
The world famous ski resort of Kitzbühel has been one of the top Austrian ski resorts for years and really does have everything - superb scenery, atmosphere, style and some of the best skiing around. Following the introduction of the 3S Bahn, Kitzbühel is now linked to the Jochberg/Resterhöhe ski area - opening up an even more extensive range of runs. The fashionable resort also offers stylish restaurants, sophisticated nightspots and its own casino. Aurach is a charming village just 5km south of Kitzbühel with easy access to the Kitzbühel ski area by free ski bus.
Ski Information Beginners
The wide open nursery slopes at the bottom of the Hahnenkamm gondola, close to the town centre, are where the famous 'Red Devils' ski school meet. These nursery slopes provide the perfect introduction to skiing. The Kitzbüheler Horn also offers some great wide, undemanding blue runs.
Ski Information Intermediates
Amidst the wealth of slopes on the huge ski circus, linked by an efficient lift system and a free ski bus service, intermediates are in their element - the swooping, wooded runs of the Ehrenbachhöhe and the exhilarating descents of the Kitzbüheler Horn and the Bärenbachkogel at Jochberg, to name but a few of the challenging and manageable pistes in store for the competent skier.
Ski Information Advanced
Proficient skiers will certainly want to test their skills on the 'Hahnenkamm Streif', considered by many to be the most testing of all the international racing pistes. If you dream of gigantic moguls and exhilarating off-piste, the Ehrenbachhöhe is not to be missed.
