Ski Club Holiday to Kitzbühel, Austria
January 19th 2019 for 7 nights
Tour Operator: Crystal
Resort information from the Crystal web site:
Sandwiched between the Hahnenkamm and Kitzbüheler Horn mountains, Kitzbühel is one of the most cosmopolitan Alpine resorts. An imposing Gothic church and brightly-coloured medieval buildings dot the high street - housing traditional hotels, sophisticated shopping, buzzing après and an atmospheric nightlife. Add to that the scenery, a diverse ski area - with 170km of piste - and it’s easy to understand Kitzbühel's popularity. It’s also home to the Hahnenkamm Streif, the Ski World Cup’s most notorious downhill race - which draws crowds of thousands to the biggest annual ski party.
On one side of the valley the Hahnenkamm gondola gives you access to the main bulk of skiing with miles of terrain and plenty of variety - recently expanded to reach the quieter Jochberg and Resterhöhe slopes thanks to the 3S gondola link. Savvy skiers tend to start the day on the Kitzbüheler Horn - on the opposite side of the valley. The Horn is smaller but also quieter and perfect for warming up your ski legs or getting away from the crowds. It’s also home to a beginner’s snowpark and has plenty of marked snow trails for keen freeriders and snowboarders.
There are over 50 mountain huts and restaurants to choose from for break times – surprisingly it can sometimes work out cheaper to have lunch on the mountain. Most après is concentrated back in town - although on a clear day it’s worth grabbing a drink and a few final rays from a deckchair near the Hahnenkamm top station.
