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 quick and easy thanks to the impressive lift system.
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 restaurants littered around the centre.
With so much to explore, the best way to experience Kitz is using the advice of your Ski Club Rep – they’re on hand from January until March this winter.

What's New for 2019/20?
Kitzbühel has spent the 2019 summer upgrading its Fleckalmbahn lift for the 2019/20 season. The aim is to provide a more luxurious, sustainable lift rather than significantly increase uphill speed and capacity. The new lift has spacious, 10 passenger cabins, compared to the old 6 passenger cabins. The capacity of the lift has only increased from 2,400 passengers per hour to 2,590 as a result of the upgrade but annual energy consumption will drop dramatically by 75,000 kWh. It came in at a hefty price tag of €27.5 million and is the latest part of the €220 million 10 year investment project in Kitzbühel.
