Kitzbühel

Ski resorts in Austria
For decades, Swedes have traveled to the Austrian Alps in hordes, with the excitement of experiencing well-prepared pistes and great off-piste skiing. Kitzbühel is no exception.

Kitzbühel is possibly best known for its downhill ski race and many Swedes probably remember Kitzbühel as the place where Ingemar Stenmark took the only downhill medal of his career, which he did in a combined competition which included a downhill run.

Now there are pistes for everyone and with the welcoming town at the bottom of the mountain with its great atmosphere and wild nightlife, Kitzbühel attracts both party goers and families today.

The village is situated between the mountain tops of Hahnenkamm and Kitzbühel Horn, and offers 57 lifts and a vertical drop of just over 1,200 meters. Unfortunately, Kitzbühel tends to not have the best snow conditions with runs that are not skiable all the way down to the village. This means parts of the pistes commonly become over-crowded.
