Quiet slopes, a reliable snow record and a short transfer from Innsbruck make Kuhtai an enticing option for returning visitors.
A collection of comfortable hotels beside a high road pass only 25km from Innsbruck - higher than equally snow-sure Obergurgl or Obertauern, but cheaper than either. The resort also claims the title as the highest ski village in Austira at 2,020m.
A modern gondola, three fast quads and a handful of drags serve blue and red cruisers of about 500m vertical on either side of the road, plus some token black runs. Covered also by the standard Innsbruck pass.
The resort tends to be quiet in the evening and weekdays, but for its size it offers a reasonable selection of hotels, many of which are ski-in, ski-out. It is liable to weekend crowds however if lower resorts around Innsbruck are short of snow.
