The SKI Area

Enjoying the ski area of Kitbuhel is tiring work but luckily there are more than 50 on-piste restaurants, catering a wide variety of dishes to refuel even the hungriest of snow lovers.

Off Peak Week suggests slowing things down not too long after lunch to enjoy the lively apres scene that can be found both on the pistes and in the town.

When Does Kitzbuhel Open?

22nd October to 3rd May - A world record 199 Skiable days!

When To Go To Kitzbuhel?

With 199 skiable days there are a huge range of options for visitors but due to the fairly low altitude of the resort the best snow conditions are generally found in January.

February is often packed with families on half term holidays but there is always plenty of snow left over for the sunny month of March, where skiers and snowboarders will enjoy long days and a fun atmosphere right up until the end of season in May.

Must Do Runs at Kitzbuhel

Advanced skiers and boarders can try their luck down the world famous “Der Strief” Downhill racing course, a regular spot on the world championship tour. With inclines of up to 85% and dropping 860m over 3km it is a true test of a riders skill and fitness.
