The KitzSki ski area:
The Kitzbühel-Kirchberg ski region has already been voted ‘Best ski resort in the world’ four times. Lying between 800 and 2,000 m, the unforgettable, natural beauty of the Kitzbüheler Horn, Hahnenkamm, Pengelstein and Resterhöhe is incomparable. From the legendary ‘Streif’ to perfect beginner slopes, the Kitzbühel ski region offers 54 comfortable lifts serving more than 179 km of superbly groomed ski slopes, as well as 36 km of marked ski routes.

Meanwhile, down in the valley, beginners and those taking up skiing again can enjoy free use of the practice lifts!
Hochkönig ski area:
The Hochkönig ski area is extensive, friendly and youthful. It is no surprise that holidaymakers return to this white paradise year after year. Ski or snowboard to your heart’s content, weave effortlessly through powder snow, soak up the winter sun and let the waft of freshly prepared ‘Kaiserschmarrn’ (emperor’s pancake) tempt you. Up here, at the ‘summit of emotions’, mountain personnel, together with 32 state-of-the-art lifts leading to 120 km of connected ski pistes, ensure glorious days of skiing between the Maria Alm, Dienten and Mühlbach areas.
The Nagelkopf adventure mountain in Piesendorf is a veritable insider's tip - a paradise for children of all ages. Sports and action are the order of the day: snow tubing, trampolining, tobogganing and ‘Zipflbob’ (a mini, plastic slide or bob for one) guarantee tremendous winter fun. The Salzburg Super Ski Card and the Kaprun-Zell am See lift pass, if bought for a minimum of 2 days, cover skiers and snowboarders from 09.00 to 16.00 on the Adventure Mountain Naglköpfl.
All the ski resorts stand out not only for their modern lifts and snowmaking facilities, but also for the many different mountain huts and restaurants which serve traditional local, and international, specialities.
