KitzSki Kitzbühel-Kirchberg - Kitzbühel Alps

KitzSki - the famous skiing area on the Ehrenbachhöhe and Mt. Hahnenkamm with its mythic “Streif” is located in the Kitzbühel Alps.

In the heart of the Kitzbühel Alps, only 6 km from the Chamois' Town, there's the skiing area of the Bergbahn Kitzbühel AG lift facilities. Since 2004, the spectacular Kitz 3S-Bahn connects the actual Kitzbühel skiing area to Jochberg, Pass Thurn and Mittersill creating a skiing area which nowadays includes seven municipalities in two Austrian states, Tyrol and Salzburg. The Fleckalmbahn cable car takes you from the Kirchberg right onto 188 km of slopes and 46 km of ski routes.

And then the choice is yours: Would you like to ski down the mythic "Streif", known as the world most daunting ski run? Or maybe you prefer the beautiful wooded slopes of Kirchberg or do the XL Route on the KitzSki Line from peak to peak? The skiing area with its "Bärenland" kids club in Jochberg, the "Kids go free days" and the family slope is considered really family-friendly. Skiing at the practice lifts in the valley is free. For snowboarders, however, there are two parks, one of them is the KitzSki Snow Park on the Hanglalm pasture. But Kitzbühel is also famous for its parties! Every year in January, the ski elite meets here for the Hahnenkamm Race weekend.

As the previous season's snow is conserved in the KitzSki snow depots, the new ski season can already start in late autumn. Since 2013, KitzSki Kitzbühel-Kirchberg has been declared for seven years in a row "World's Best Ski Resort" by the world's largest skiing area test portal The Snow Card Tyrol (more than 90 skiing areas in Tyrol), the SuperSkiCard (22 ski regions, 2,750 km of slopes) and the Salzburg Super Ski Card (23 ski regions) are valid in this skiing area.
