Kitzbühel & winter sports are a truly timeless and legendary combination.  Ever since 1892, the city known as “Chamois Town” has been world-renowned for its snow sports.

The first Hahnenkamm Race took place in 1931. Over the last few decades, this challenging race has become the world’s most important alpine ski event. Kitzbühel is more deeply rooted in skiing history than any other alpine skiing resort.

Kitzbühel has always been a trendsetting city. Snowboarders and newschool skiers can take full advantage of a premium snow park, bringing high international standards to local youth winter sports.

Alpine skiers have a myriad of options to choose from thanks to 170 km of ski runs, 54 gondolas and ski lifts, which transport winter sports fans as high as 2,000 m above sea level.

Many charming ski huts await your visit. Powder skiers will find their personal nirvana among the 32 km of ski routes and a wide variety of ski mountaineering opportunities.
