“Kitzbühel’s world renown is based largely on the Streif, the annual televised downhill race on the Hahnenkamm. But in reality its extensive ski area is largely intermediate, with few pisted challenges for experts. The charming town is a walled, medieval settlement painted with delicate frescoes. The centre is mercifully traffic-free, and a bus service ferries skiers to and from the Hahnenkamm and the Kitzbüheler Horn mountains.“
Kitzbühel was the resort where we first realised whilst waiting in a bus stop that lots of ski resorts are actually quite close together so the following day we hopped on the train to Brixen im Thale and had a day skiing in Söll.Kitzbühel was also the first resort to see successful pegging of an umpah band and saw the first skiing across a dual carriageway. After skiing the Hahnenkamm try and find the 'toilet bar' - it's a great little place.
