Why choose Kitzbühel?

Kitzbühel’s cosmopolitan pedestrianised centre is the ideal place to shop, eat and drink, within a lively après-ski atmosphere. Evening entertainment suitable for school groups can be found at the nearby sports centre and Aquarena, while the culture of Salzburg, Munich and Innsbruck is just two hours away, providing a perfect balance to all the snow-filled fun of the resort.

Nearby, medium-sized Mittersill offers a decent range of amenities, including an interesting National Park Centre. The town gives skiers fast access to the Kitzbühel ski area, either from Hollersbach or from Pass Thurn. Just four kilometres from Mittersill, Stuhlfelden is a small, peaceful village with a few essential amenities, and yet another delightful village lies between Kitzbühel and Kirchberg. Reith is a firm favourite with our groups thanks to its proximity to these two renowned ski resorts. In the Kitzbühel area, every essential amenity is on hand to help school groups enjoy the best possible winter sports experience.

 

On the piste

The world-class resort of Kitzbühel benefits from some of the most advanced ski lift technology in Europe, while far-reaching snowmaking facilities ensure some of the most exhilarating and satisfying skiing available anywhere in the HTS Total Ski portfolio.

The world-famous Hahnenkamm, known locally as the ‘Streif’, is the home of the annual World Cup men’s downhill ski race, held each January. Students get the cowbells clanging as skiers descend the piste at speeds exceeding 140 kilometres per hour. It’s mind blowing to think that the downhill section is 3312 metres long, with an incredible 85 per cent gradient at its steepest point!

Yet Kitzbühel is also a beginner’s paradise, with dedicated learning areas on Pass Thurn or at the Fleckalmbahn Gondola, between Kitzbühel and Kirchberg. Those with a bit more experience can try out the ‘ski safari’, leading groups along a scenic trail from the Hahnenkamm and zig-zagging across the mountains to the Resterhöhe lift at Pass Thurn.

Late season skiers will be in their element in Kitzbühel, which holds onto its good snow conditions – great for uncrowded pistes well into the spring. Snowboarders have a choice of boardercross runs, halfpipes and a huge board course – ideal for testing out their acrobatic skills.
