Why choose this resort
Combine all the cobbled character of the Middle Ages with state-of-the-art lifts, snow-makers and uncrowded pistes and you have all the makings of a classic winter break. Kitzbühel’s combines the elements of a classic winter resort with culture and thanks to Salzburg, Munich and Innsbruck being just 2hrs away, history and skiing are right on your snow-dusted doorstep. Hahnenkamm is the home of the annual World Cup downhill in January with a chance for students to get the cow bells out as they storm down the Streif piste at a top speed of over 140km/hr. The downhill section is 3312m long with an 85% gradient at its steepest point, beginning at 1665m and ending close to the centre of the resort at 802m.
On the slopes
Those looking to improve their ski skills will be pleased to know that the foot of the Kitzbühelerhorn offers plenty of chilled-out gradients and after a couple of lessons they’ll find plenty more options on the Pengelstein. The slopes of Saalbach, Hinterglemm and Leogang are just a short bus ride or lift away and offer groups a host of intermediate runs. Across the 170km of skiable piste there is a great amount of choice ranging from the scary stripes of Hahnenkamm to the monolithic moguls of Ehrenbachhöhe meaning experts won’t be left wanting. This internationally renowned ski resort boasts some of the best lift connections in the Alps, including a spectacular three cable gondola linking the Pengelstein to Jochberg. Another huge benefit to our school groups is Panorama gondola connecting Mittersill to the Resterkogel top station. Beginners usually start either on Pass Thurn or at the Fleckalm gondola, whilst experienced skiers have a wealth of blue and red runs to explore. Snowboarders aren’t left out either with boarder-x runs, halfpipes and a gigantic board course providing the all-important air-time.
