Kitzbühel Ski Resort
This charming medieval town of Kitzbühel has a serious skiing pedigree and recent investment in snowmaking and the lift system mean the queues and bare slopes of old are becoming a thing of the past.
Covering 185km of marked pistes – topped up by an additional 45km of marked ski routes – Kitzbühel has a surprisingly large ski area. Of course there is the infamous Streif Downhill course and some great steep terrain amongst the woods, but in reality this is a great resort for intermediates looking to put some miles under their belts. You really feel a sense of travelling when you ski from one end to the other and getting around is super quick thanks to the impressive lift system – another two new lifts were built for 2018/19.
The town of Kitzbühel is as picturesque as it gets and the sense of history is clear. Wandering around the pedestrianised town centre within the old city walls is a great experience and it is certainly different to most ski resorts. Stay in the middle if possible to experience the resort at its best and make the most of the numerous cafes, shops, bars and restaurant littered around the centre.
With so many slopes to explore, the best way to experience Kitz is with a Ski Club Leader – they’re on hand to guide you around the pistes (and the bars!) from 5th January until 30th March this winter.
