Ski Lifts in Kirchberg

Kirchberg is well-served by a modern and efficient ski lift system. The ski areas are well-connected and skiers have the option of purchasing the extensive All Star Card which gives access to ten different ski areas across the Kitzbuhler Alps and a total of more than 1,000km of pistes.

Kirchberg Ski Lifts

There are 54 lifts across the KitzSki area, including the impressive 3S cable car and a number of high-capacity heated chairlifts. There is a good mix of high speed cable cars and chairlifts, many of which carry four or more people, meaning lift queues are only really a factor during peak holiday periods. There are also Wi-Fi hotspots at most lift stations – a simple but useful feature when trying to get in touch with friends elsewhere on the mountain.

From Kirchberg, there are two main lifts providing access to the KitzSki. The Maierlbahn cable car is based in town and takes skiers up to the Ochsalmbahn base station, while the Fleckalmbahn is located slightly higher up – a short bus ride from town – and takes skiers to the top of the Ochsalmbahn. From there, skiers can head over to Hahnenkamm or towards Steinbergkogel and the rest of the ski area. The Fleckalmbahn can often be closed in windy conditions – an inconvenient start to the day if you are planning to use it but the pain is relatively short lived thanks to free and regular shuttle buses to the Maierlbahn during the core part of the season.

The lift system is less contemporary in the discreet Kitzbüheler Horn section of the ski area, though with fewer skiers to contend with, lift queues are rarely too much of a problem.

Lift Passes

The Bergbahn Kitzbühel pass for the KitzSki ski area provides access to 170km of pistes, and includes an evening trip up the Gaisberg lift for those keen on good mountain food and tobogganing. Daily & other multi-day passes are also available. A better option, however, is the All-Star Card, which gives access to ten different ski areas and more than 1,000km of pistes. It is only slightly more expensive than the Bergbahn Kitzbühel option.

Parents and novices should note that there are some lifts across the ski area which are free for beginners. These can change according to the time of season so visitors should ask the pass office for more information.
