Best tips for Kitzbühel / Kirchberg (KitzSki)
Kitzbuhel’s Hahnenkamm downhill race course is the most exciting on the World Cup circuit, and race weekend is one of the jolliest parties in the Alps. But the place has powerful attractions at other times too. This is one of the most attractive ski towns on the planet. The lift system, once a bit of an embarrassment, has been transformed in the last decade and it now gets our highest ***** rating for fast lifts. Sadly, Kitz doesn’t get the same rating for snow for us, the great weakness of the place. These days, powerful snowmaking means it’s not a matter of quantity, but of quality. Often the snow is fine high up but crunchy or slushy lower down. The fact is, Kitzbuhel would benefit from more altitude. But then lovely medieval towns are a rare thing at altitude.
- Extensive, attractive, varied slopes offering a sensation of travel
- Increasingly slick lift system
- Exceptionally beautiful medieval town centre, more or less traffic-free
- Excellent snowmaking, which is deployed to give an impressively long season
- Low altitude means snow is often poor low down (though snowmaking is extensive)
- Fewer challenges on-piste than you might expect
- Mediocre resort-level nursery area
- Away from the compact centre, the town sprawls widely
