Kitzbuhel is one of the most famous ski resorts in the Alps, being, in fact, the emblem of the Austrian ski holidays. This resort complex was one of the serious contenders for the 2006 Winter Olympics.
The resort is 4 areas with ski slopes, of which 2 are connected by a network of lifts. The Hahnenkamm slope, the most significant in terms of ski slopes, allows you to easily reach it by a gondola lift from the city.
Trails of increased difficulty level originate from the Ehrenbachhoe summit and end in Kitzbuhel, and the trails for those who prefers less extreme slopes, leading to Kirchberg, connected to Kitzbuhel by a regular bus route.
Ski area in the resort area Kitzbuehel is located in the altitude range from 800 to 2 000 meters, the total number of tracks – 58, their total length reaches 168 kilometers. The longest track is 6.8 kilometers long.
The sections of the tracks located near the Steinbergkogel summit are perfect for alpine skiing professionals. For beginners, the slopes on the easy and gentle slopes of the Horn are intended, and for those who are confident in alpine skiing, the slopes of Resterhon and Pengelstein are perfect.
