Several advantages for families

Kitzbühel’s reputation as an upper-class destination may put some families off visiting the resort. Skiing here is certainly not the cheapest option and that is pretty indisputable. However, Kitzbühel has offers in place which make it a little more affordable for all the family. For instance, children and young people receive between 45 and 60% discount on lift tickets at the weekend. As already described in the beginner category, the practice slopes in the valley can also be used free-of-charge. This is a great opportunity to introduce youngsters to winter sports in Aschau, Pass Thurn & co. There is also a vast range of ski schools to choose from, as listed on the local tourist association page. Across the entire ski area, ski schools have children’s areas where young guests can learn to ski.

Not all slopes suitable for youngsters

Exploring the entire ski area with children can be a challenge, depending on their ability. There is not always a simple alternative to red-marked slopes for beginners. In addition, the flat sections spread across the ski area may put some children off. If the youngsters are not yet confident on their skis, parents should definitely avoid the Familienstreif run. Despite its name, this trail requires a certain amount of expertise. However, the runs on the Pengelstein are ideally suited for a family day on the slopes. The ski area also impressed us in this category with the numerous chair lifts which feature protection for children, as well as the sled run in Kirchberg which offers fun beyond skiing.

There is a children's land at the valley station of the Hahnenkamm Railway. Otherwise, on almost all lifts there are also pistes that are suitable for beginners. Difficult passages are often defused by simpler outrides.
