Kitzbühel is not only great for advanced skiers thanks to its groomed runs – we can also certainly recommend the area for skiers who like to venture off-piste. There are 13 marked routes off-piste across the entire ski area, combining to provide 36 km of ungroomed powder fun. On the Steinbergkogel and Zweitausender – these routes are easy to reach from the lifts and well-marked in the trail map. They also offer a safe option for powder fans. Kitzbühel offers nine LVS checkpoints which are well spread across the entire ski area. Freeriders can also find out about the current avalanche hazard at these information points.
Bichlalm – the ski area’s very own ski tour zone
In addition to the ski routes in the main part the ski area, the Bichlalm and Kitzbüheler Horn are favourite destinations for freerider enthusiasts. The Kitzbüheler Horn is blessed with meters of natural snow every year, offering a paradise of powder drops and tree runs on ski routes around the Reintal lift. The ski area operators in the Bichlalm area have completely geared their approach towards the needs of freeride skiers. A new chairlift carries skiers up to the Hochetzkogel, from where they can take a grooming vehicle onwards to the Stuckkogel. From here, skiers have plenty of off-piste terrain to explore, not to mention tons of untouched powder.
