The "Fleckalm" 10-person gondola will provide winter sports fans with maximum comfort thanks to its ergonomically-designed heated seats!

The speed, carving and slalom slopes are special attractions, with the highlight being the steepest competitive slope in the world, the Streif - a must for passionate winter athletes! This also where the annual Hahnenkamm race takes place. With the 3S cable car a fantastic interconnected ski area has been created, which offers you the opportunity to use the pistes from Krichberg, via Kitzbühel and Jochberg, right up to the Skiarena Resterhöhe in Pass Thurn.

The Kitzbühel Snowpark is a true boarders paradise: with quarter-pipe, tables, slides and jumps on the Hanglalm a snowboarder's heart will definitely beat faster.

Night skiing Kitzbühel

Austria has several night ski areas with pistes that are open until night-time. The ski area Kitzbühel also offers night skiing possibilities so you can go skiing in the evening. Every Wednesday from 18:30, night skiing is possible on approx. 1 km of illuminate pistes in Reith. Another 1.5 km night ski piste is available at Gaisberg lift in Kirchberg every Thursday and Friday between 18:30 and 21:30. Here you can also go night-tobogganing. If your lift pass is valid for at least 6 days you can go night skiing at Gaisberg for free once per stay. Otherwise, evening tickets for night skiing or night tobogganing can be acquired in resort. If you need some refreshments during or after night skiing, Gaisberstüberl is open until 22:30 during night ski days.

Après ski Kitzbühel

Kitzbühel is known beyond its borders for its incomparable après ski. Already in the ski area and at the valley stations, numerous ski lodges invite you in for refreshment, such as the "Sonnenbergalm" or "Tonis Hütte". Famous-notorious spots in resort include the "Fünferl", "Hahnenkamm Pavillon" and "Londoner", where après ski is claimed to be founded. Later in the evening you can move on to the "Club Take Five" or "Jimmy's". Numerous restaurants entice guests to dine and enjoy international cuisine.

The resort doesn't just attract fun-oriented visitors, but also nature lovers. The wonderful mountains can be experienced on hiking trails along the frozen ponds and lakes, or on a snowshoe tour over the region's loveliest hills. Special highlights on these hiking tours are the trails along the Hintersteuerberg or along the unique lake promenade of Lake Schwarz. If the ice is thick enough, the lake also invites you to take a twirl on skates and does not only make children's eys sparkle.

The lighted 1.5 km long toboggan run at Gaisberg is also a great experience, as is a horse-drawn sleigh ride or a torchlight hike through the snowy landscape. Those looking to relax after a strenuous day on the piste should visit the pool and sauna complex "Aquarena". A cinema centre and a casino complete the resort's huge selection of activities.
