Essential Information about Kitzbühel Ski Resort

With a wide array of options both on and off the slopes, it’s easy to see why Kitzbühel Ski Resort has been voted Best Ski Resort in Austria several times in recent years. To help you make the most of your time at this historic resort we’ve compiled in-depth information about the ski resort as well as tips about everything Kitzbühel has to offer:

Ski Areas and Terrain:Kitzbühel boasts two main ski areas: the smaller Kitzbüheler Horn and the expansive Hahnenkamm-Pengelstein-Resterhöhe linked ski domain. The Kitzbüheler Horn, despite its smaller size, offers good cruising runs and is known as the local freestyle and snowboard area, complete with snow park and halfpipe. Overall, the distribution is 40% easy, 45% intermediate, and 15% difficult terrain.

For Beginners: Kitzbühel caters particularly well to beginners, with 10 practice slopes in the valley available free of charge, including free practice lifts. These areas provide a safe and comfortable environment for new skiers to hone their skills.

Almhütten: These artisanal log huts are dotted around ski areas in Tyrol and serve as cozy, welcoming places for hikers, skiers, and other outdoor enthusiasts. They offer a range of refreshments, from hot drinks to hearty snacks and meals, often featuring traditional Tyrolean cuisine. The atmosphere in these huts is usually warm and rustic, providing a delightful break in the midst of nature.

Ski Run Difficulty Signs in Austria — Understanding the Color Codes

If you're skiing in Austria for the first time, it's essential to familiarize yourself with the color-coded signs indicating run difficulty. A key difference in Austria for US skiers is that the shape of the sign or symbol does not reflect the level of difficulty. Additionally, Austrian signs often include numbers and the name of the ski run. The number does not signify difficulty; rather, it indicates your progress along the run—the lower the number, the closer you are to the end of the run.

Green Run

In Austria, as in France and America, a green circle-shaped sign denotes an easy slope. This is consistent with the American system, where a green circle also represents a beginner-level run.

Blue Run

A blue circular sign in Austria, similar to France, marks an intermediate slope. This is fairly similar to the American system, where intermediate runs are denoted by a blue square.

Red Run

A red, circle-shaped sign in Austria signifies a difficult ski run. This can be compared to a single black-diamond run in the U.S. It’s crucial to recognize this before you venture out on Austrian slopes, as you wouldn’t want to inadvertently tackle a challenging run unprepared.

Black Run

In Austria, a black circle-shaped sign indicates an extremely difficult ski run, akin to a double black-diamond run in the States.
