KitzSki Ski Holidays
The Kitzbühel / Kirchberg ski area otherwise commonly known as the Kitzski ski area is one of Austria’s oldest and renowned ski areas. Sitting in between the Kitzbüheler Horn and the Hahnenkamm areas, it is said in legend, that skiing was “invented” in the Kitzski area. With records dating back to the 14th century, Kitzski still has remnants of the era dotted around the resort’s centre. The combination of its range of pistes and piste preparation, snow reliability and conditions, apres-ski scene and mountain restaurants and lodges have seen the Kitzski area awarded the Worlds Best Ski Area by German publication skiresort.de. Home to the fantastic resort of Kitzbuhel, and the only resort within this ski area, Kitzski effortlessly combines traditional Austrian charm with a modern progressing theme. It has top-rated facilities from its upgraded lift systems, perpetual piste grooming machines to its snowmaking facilities.
Even though it is known for its upmarket designer boutiques Kitzbuhel and the Kitzski ski area still maintain a friendly and buzzing Alpine spirit. With more than 230 kilometres of snow-sure pistes reaching above 2,000 metres, Kitzbuhel has a lot to offer a wide range of skiers from old to young, beginner to expert across its 67 marked pistes. A fun place to be especially when the famous Men’s Downhill Hahnenkamm race comes around each year, Kitzbuhel transforms into a beaming hive of activity.
