World Ski Awards 2016
Winner: Best Austrian Ski Resort
Kitzbühel's appeal lies in its traditional Tyrolean atmosphere with painted houses and cobbled streets, and of course its extensive ski area which offers a variety of runs for all levels of skier - ideal for groups of mixed standards!
Most of Kitzbühel’s slopes face north-east or north-west and enjoy good snow conditions, excellent powder and beautiful skiing both above and below the tree line.
The Ski Safari, which extends from Kirchberg to Pass Thurn, is a tour which can be accomplished by intermediate skiers and is an experience not to be missed.
