Kirchberg Intermediate Skiing

Kirchberg is an excellent destination for intermediate skiers with 170km of well-groomed pistes in the KitzSki ski area, and easy access to a total of more than 1,000km of pistes across ten ski areas locally. All covered by the All Star Card lift pass.

Nearly half of the KitzSki area is comprised of intermediate red runs, and wide open pistes are a common sight throughout the region. With the good lift system, it is easy to cover a lot of ground in this vast ski area, particularly outside of peak holiday periods, and there is an enjoyable concentration of pistes beneath the Wurzhöhe and Bärenkogel peaks such as the red 60 run which will stimulate intermediates.

From Kirchberg, the Fleckalmbahn and Maierlbahn provide access to the heart of the Kitzski ski area, giving competent skiers the opportunity to experience skiing in the famous Hahnenkamm area, while there are a number of long blue runs around the Ochsalmbahn and Steinbergkogel lifts which give less experienced intermediates an opportunity to gain confidence.

The long blue runs (25 & 26) back down to the village can unsurprisingly become busy with ski school groups and late in the day as skiers return home, but there are plenty of alternatives including the network of blue runs beneath Pengelstein and the enjoyable reds beneath Bärenbadkogel, 62 & 65 in particular. Worth noting, however, that the runs by Bärenbadkogel can get slushy in the afternoon.

Although discreet, the Kitzbüheler Horn area should not be discounted, offering a nice circuit of pistes as well as the option to test your speed on the guest race piste.

While substantial, skiers really wishing to cover some ground have the option to ski any of the nine other areas using the Kitzbüheler Alpen All Star Card, with the SkiWelt offering a proximate alternative to the KitzSki area.
