Ski resort ratings for Kitzbuhel compared to all other ski resorts. Based on 180 reviews.
Kitz is a ski town and skiing here is a way of life. It's not purpose built so has real character but there are some flat runs that boarders hate. It's a great resort but you have to seek out the best places. If you're a beginner go to the Kitzbuheler Horn: lovely big sunny bowl with great progression in one area. Not scary not narrow, then go to the main area after a couple of days or so. If you are an intermediate then Kitz is a great playground but remember this is Austria - no green runs so some of the runs are harder than you think! But it is mostly intermediate.
In regard to off-piste skiing. The obvious places are on the map but do try the route from under the 3s to Aurach and al
Review by Gunther from Dresden on Wednesday Nov 10th. Visited Kitzbuhel in march 2010 as couple
It's surprisingly well maintained for a European resort with great grooming, reasonably fast chairs, long bump runs, a lot of off piste powder filled bowls as well as a great variety of trails for all levels of skiers. I really enjoyed being able to cover miles and miles of trails each day. Furthermore, Kitzbuhel has some of the hottest nightlife of any resort I've been too.

It's surprisingly well maintained for a European resort with great grooming, reasonably fast chairs, long bump runs, a lot of off piste powder filled bowls as well as a great variety of trails for all levels of skiers. I really enjoyed being able to cover miles and miles of trails each day, on some mornings we would catch the bus to surrounding towns, like Kirchberg and spend the day making our way back to Kitzbuhel.

We found the snow conditions at Kitzbühel amongst the best European conditions that we have ever had. Over a 1m of snow fell in the resort whilst we were there - much more up on top. We had probably the best weeks skiing that any of us have ever had. The resort itself was excellent with great alpine charm.
One minor point - the Hahnenkahm gondola in the morning had horrendous queues from 9am until about 11am. My advice here is get out early - or lie in - and don't come back into Kitzbuhel until the end of the day. For some of us ***ping kids off at ski school, this, however, couldn't be helped.
I was expecting the prices in restaurants etc, to be expensive - especially with the Euro

I love Kitzbuhel!!! That is all I could say but I will give a few good reasons why. Hannennkhamm (Dont know about spelling, sorry!) Can there possible be a more frightening downhill course to watch on TV and then try to ski yourself. The Londoner Inn - A world famous pub in Kitz where the winner of the above mentioned downhill race serves beer on the night of the race. What an atomosphere that weekend! The picture perfect scenery - That sentence speaks for itself, not just of the mountains, but of the town itself.
