    Kitzbühel ski resort has been voted “Best ski resort in the World” by voters in 2013, 2014 and 2015, so where better to start off than with their world famous ski run, the “Streif”. This piste is a must for the more advanced skiers, even just to understand how crazy the downhill ski pros are when they go flying down it each year! But fear not beginners, as Kitzbühel has plenty to offer you too!

    Kitzbühel is home to over 170km of well-maintained pistes which are supported by a great lift system consisting of 53 different ski lifts and a great ski bus service connecting all of the Kitzski valley access points. One of the great things about Kitzbühel is that they operate a free lift system on some of their beginner runs to allow people to brush up their skills on skis or snowboards before heading up to tackle the rest of the mountain. Intermediate skiers will be able to shoot straight off and explore the vast array of terrain that Kitzbühel has to offer, whilst overlooking the dramatic scenery of the Alps.

    Whilst Kitzbühel itself is quite low at around 800m, it is a ‘guaranteed snow’ resort with all the snow making facilities allowing them to stay open for an average of 155 days of skiing each season.

    The resort

    Kitzbühel is a picturesque Austrian town close to the border with Germany. Filled with designer shops and award winning restaurants, it attracts many celebrities to the mountain range to explore one of the best spots in the Alps. Often referred to as the sports capital in the heart of the Alps due to the various events that go on there every year, skiers tend to look forward to the world famous Hahnenkamm Downhill race. The event – which takes place each year attracting some of the biggest and best athletes – actually presents the best time to go out to Kitzbühel, with the best atmosphere in the town, and virtually empty slopes as everyone is watching the racing!

    It is believed that Franz Reisch, a pioneer of skiing, made the first descent of the Kitzbüheler Horn way back in 1893 making it the first alpine ski run in Austria, and since then I guess you could say the rest is history! 

    You will find a great time out and about in Kitzbühel, with more than enough to keep everyone entertained both during the day and in the evenings like bowling or the occasional Ice Hockey games at the Mercedes Benz Sportpark. For groups looking for a good après scene, don’t worry as they have that covered as well, just don’t blame us if you are a tad sensitive the next day!
