The name Kitzbühel also has its price. During the main season, a lift pass costs a whopping 51 euros (correct as of March 2016) – the most expensive price tag in Austria, shared with Ski Arlberg, Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn and Ischgl. As a result, each kilometre of piste costs € 0.30, which is well below the average for the Alps (€ 0.82). In addition, there is a special discount every day: Depending on the day of the week there is 20% off for ladies, men, the over-60s or students. At the weekend, kids and young people enjoy between 45 and 65 percent off. On selected dates during the season, children can even ski for free – these dates are always announced at the start of the winter.
Free practice lifts
Another positive point is that the practice slopes in the valley (Rasmusleiten, Mocking, Ministreif, Hausleiten, Pass Thurn, Aschau and Reith) can be used free-of-charge. However, this does not apply for all car parks! Our tip: If you are looking to save some money, do not park in front of the Hahnenkammbahn. This is the only car park which requires visitors to pay a parking fee. If you are eating out, it is also worth taking a look at the menu first. This is another area which can be expensive! However, there are also plenty of very moderately-priced lodges throughout the ski area.
