Fitted with some of the most modern snow-making systems, the ski area of Kitzbühel offers permanently nearly perfect piste conditions.
The speed, carving and slalom slopes are special attractions, with the highlight being the steepest competitive slope in the world, the Streif - a must for passionate winter athletes! This also where the annual Hahnenkamm race takes place. With the 3S cable car a fantastic interconnected ski area has been created, which offers you the opportunity to use the pistes from Krichberg, via Kitzbühel and Jochberg, right up to the Skiarena Resterhöhe in Pass Thurn.
The Kitzbühel Snowpark is a true boarders paradise: with quarter-pipe, tables, slides and jumps on the Hanglalm a snowboarder's heart will definitely beat faster. The easy runs on Gaisberg, Ehrenbachhöhe and Pengelstein are ideal for families.

Those, looking for some more diversity can upgrade the lift pass to the "Super Ski Card" (see Ski Region). This is also valid in the ski areas Wilder Kaiser - Brixental, Schneewinkel and Ski Juwel (Alpbachtal - Wildschönau). You can access 22 ski regions in Tyrol and Salzburg, with 2,750 km of pistes, accessible via 943 lifts. Unlimited skiing fun!
Kitzbühel is known beyond its borders for its incomparable après ski. Already in the ski area and at the valley stations, numerous ski lodges invite you in for refreshment, such as the "Sonnenbergalm" or "Tonis Hütte". Famous-notorious spots in resort include the "Fünferl", "Hahnenkamm Pavillon" and "Londoner", where après ski is claimed to be founded. Later in the evening you can move on to the "Club Take Five" or "Jimmy's". Numerous restaurants entice guests to dine and enjoy international cuisine.
The resort doesn't just attract fun-oriented visitors, but also nature lovers. The wonderful mountains can be experienced on hiking trails along the frozen ponds and lakes, or on a snowshoe tour over the region's loveliest hills. Special highlights on these hiking tours are the trails along the Hintersteuerberg or along the unique lake promenade of Lake Schwarz. If the ice is thick enough, the lake also invites you to take a twirl on skates and does not only make children's eys sparkle.
The lighted 3.5 km long toboggan run at Gaisberg is also a great experience, as is a horse-drawn sleigh ride or a torchlight hike through the snowy landscape. Those looking to relax after a strenuous day on the piste should visit the pool and sauna complex "Aquarena". A cinema centre and a casino complete the resort's huge selection of activities.
Also for the Nordic winter sports Kitzbühel has a lot to offer! In the area of Kitzbühel, Aurach and Reith there are approx. 60 km of trails, in Kirchberg you can find a further 24 km. The longest trails are the sunny trail Kitzbühel-Reith-Kirchberg with a total length of approx. 20 km, and the urban trail Kitzbühel-Aurach-Jochberg over approx. 16 km is also recommendable for the less experienced.
