Kitzbuhel Ski Resort

Kitzbühel is one of the most famous ski resorts, due to the Hahnenkamm downhill race course on the World Cup Circuit. The resort itself is picturesque with a medieval car-free town centre. The slopes mainly cater for the intermediate skier with some more advanced skiing for the expert. It is a beautiful resort with a vibrant nightlife, lots to do off the slopes and a variety of good restaurants in the town and on the slopes.

Kitzbühel's extensive slopes, shared with Kirchberg and Jochberg, offer a mixture of skiing for all levels. Steep slopes and off piste skiing are mostly concentrated in the Steinbergkogel-Ehrenbachgraben area. Intermediates will find great skiing all around the Kitzbühel area. Kitzbühel is not a massively high resort (900-2000m) so later on in the season, the lower slopes can suffer.

The excellent mountain restaurants (over 50 to choose from) can be one of the main reasons people return to the resort. Kitzbühel's nightlife is a big selling point for the resort with something for everyone to choose from; busy bars, little cafes with afternoon tea and cakes, live music and late-night bars and nightclubs.
