Map of the Ski slopes in Kitzbuhel

   

Beginners - Very Good

The ‘nursery slopes’ at the foot of the Hahnenkamm & at the
top of the Kitzbüheler Horn are gentle, easy slopes.

Intermediate - Excellent

Kitzbühel’s superb lift system offers a fantastic choice of
skiing, with kilometres of blue and red runs. Our ski guiding
service will take you on the Ski Safari with 35km of skiing!

Advanced - Excellent

Lots of challenges here, with steep black runs and, at times, great off-piste skiing. The most challenging skiing is found in Pass Thurn.

 


Après Ski
The Après Ski (after ski) activities will form an important part of your holiday. This is the opportunity to soak up the village
atmosphere, get to know some of the locals and generally eat, drink and be merry. And not necessarily in that order…!
Kitzbühel is famous for its Après Ski! The lively and cosmopolitan bars, disco's, nightclubs and local ‘watering holes’ include the
infamous Londoner Pub, the wonderful ice bars on the slopes and mountain pubs where the beautiful…and not so beautiful, strip
down to their t-shirts to catch the late afternoon rays. Try out Das Lichtl, Jimmy's, The Londoner, Stamperl, La Fonda, Highways
and Royal Dancing.

Besides skiing, the list of things to do in and around Kitzbühel is almost endless. So if you’re not taking to the slopes you might
want to try one or more of the following:
