Skiresort.de, the world’s largest test portal for ski resorts, named our Kitzbühel|Kirchberg ski region in Tirol the Best Ski Resort in the World in 2016, after having conferred this title upon the ski area in 2013, 2014 and 2015 as well.
In addition, World Ski Awards (the Oscars of the skiing community) chose Kitzbühel as the World’s Best Ski Resort – and KitzSki as the World’s Best Ski Resort Company.
Top: SkiArea Test rated KitzSki as the overall test winner in 2012/2013, 2014/2015 & 2015/2016.
But why does the Kitzbühel|Kirchberg ski resort hold such a fascination for winter sports enthusiasts? Firstly, one of the main reasons is likely the extraordinary beauty of our surroundings. Secondly, we offer 215 kilometres of slopes and 36 kilometres of marked ski routes in all degrees of difficulty, action-packed snowboard fun parks, natural toboggan runs, plus hundreds of kilometres of cross-country ski trails and winter hiking trails. The more than 50 rustic, cosy ski huts invite you to take a break and sample some delicious food. The top attraction is probably the legendary Hahnenkamm race with the world-famous “Streif”.
As if all that weren’t enough, we also have the best pistes anywhere from October to the beginning of May, which translates into as many as 180 days of unparalleled skiing pleasure and never-ending excitement. Highly professional ski and snowboard instructors are on hand to give help and advice to beginners and those getting back into skiing. The Kitzbüheler Horn, Hahnenkamm, Fleckalm and Pass Thurn all feature perfectly groomed pistes, plenty of variety and, of course, cosy and rustic ski huts where you can stop in for refreshments and relaxation.
The Kitzbühel|Kirchberg ski area in Tirol boasts 215 kilometres of perfectly prepared and marked pistes, including 15 valley runs, for beginners, regular holiday skiers and advanced winter sports enthusiasts. With our 54 lifts, we are also Austria’s largest cable car company. The cable cars offer the highest levels of comfort, including heated seats. They are pleasant, modern and stress-free. We also have 1,068 snowmaking machines in operation. With 10 lakes with a total capacity of approx. 725,000m³, the number of reservoirs is also impressive.
Furthermore, we are one of the first non-glacier ski resorts to open every winter and can be relied upon to welcome skiers and snowboarders from October. During the 2015/2016 season, we were open for action on 191 days, which is a new record!
