Ski Kitzbühel by Train

168 km of piste between 800-2000m

Kitzbühel is famous for its classic Hahnenkamm downhill race, but it’s a fairly easy run for the leisure skier and snowboarder, with some amazing views across the valley. In fact most slopes are pleasant intermediate fodder, the only downside being that the resort is so low that the conditions on lower slopes often deteriorate badly before Spring. The town is pretty, the apres ski good and the range of accomodation should suit all budgets.

Ski Kitzbühel by train

From the station in Kitzbühel a free ski bus meanders around the village to the bottom stations, the first being the small but boarder friendly Kitzbähler Horn, the second being the Hahnenkammbahn. There is actually a railway station right next to the Hahnenkammbahn, named after the lift itself. Kitzbühel is a very easy day trip from Innsbruck, about an hour and a half via Wörgl and during the ski season there is a direct rail service from Munich.

Getting to Kitzbühel by Train

The best destination to access the downhill slopes by public transport in this ski area is Zweisimmen. Station adjacent to Gondola (left out of station). Note that the lift pass is good for all lifts in Gstaad Mountain Rides and on all local buses and the railway as far as Rossinière. Stations at Saanenmöser, Schönried, Saanen, Rougement and Château-d'Oex are all a few minutes walk from valley stations.
