Favourable position for snow

Located at an altitude of between 802 and 2,000 m, Kitzbühel in Tyrol is not one of the highest ski areas in the region. Yet the season here averages 155 days in length until the end of April. While some of the runs down into the valley understandably cannot offer the best conditions right up to the end of spring (a fact we can attest to first hand from our test in March), the runs at high altitude are usually still in good shape late into the year.

Plenty of freshies

The plentiful supply of snow in the area is attributable to the so-called “Nordweststaulage”, which sees moist air from the North Sea condense against the Kitzbüheler Alps and cause snowfall. As the snow largely falls on grass instead of rocks, small amounts are enough to cover the runs here. The natural snowfall is supported by almost 1,000 snow cannons. In total, an area of 331 ha (from a total of 463 ha) or 112 km of runs can be artificially prepared. Kitzbühel is certainly impressive in this respect and received eight points from us.

Highest altitude 1900 meters. If you already make the mistake to drive here, then please in January, perhaps also in February if it is still cold enough.In 10-20 years this ski area is no longer there in my eyes.

There was good snow everywhere in February and the slopes were also snowed. However, thaw it in the valley and the slopes directly at Kitzbühel thaw and then freeze again.

The Kitzbühel ski area is not particularly high, but it can be described as snow-proof due to its wide snowing and thus also has comparatively long seasons, which often reach from the end of November to even early May.
