Kirchberg in Tirol

The Austrian Ski Resort of Kirchberg in Tirol is part of the Kitzbüheler Alpen ski area with access to 621km of downhill skiing, with 344 individual pistes, served by 197 ski lifts. In addition to the skiing in Kirchberg in Tirol itself (158km of pisted ski runs), the appropriate ski Lift Pass will allow you to ski or snowboard in the other Kitzbüheler Alpen ski resorts of Fieberbrunn - PillerseeTal, Kirchdorf, Oberndorf, SkiWelt, St Johann in Tirol and Waidring.

There are three Airports within two hours drive, so ski weekends, snowboard breaks and short ski holidays to Kirchberg in Tirol are perfectly feasible. Innsbruck Airport is just one hours drive away, in good driving conditions, so you can be on the piste quickly.

Skiing in Kirchberg in Tirol

Although best-known for being lift-linked to its famous neighbour, Kitzbühel, the lifts in fact go on to join other resorts in addition. These include Aschau, Aurach, Jochberg - Pass Thurn and Mittersill with 200km (125 miles) of trails - together one of the largest linked ski areas in Austria and the world, with a ski bus service on the roads between the resorts below. It's just the tip of the iceberg for those with their own transport too, because skiers can now purchase the Kitzbüheler Alpen Ski Pass, good at about 30 ski areas in the Region, some lift-linked, others not, but together offering up to 680km (425 miles) of trails.

The ski bus service is quite important because, unless you stay in accommodation out of the village centre and near to the lift bases, you're likely to need to use the bus to get from your hotel to the slopes. Beginners will often find their feet on Kirchberg's own un-linked ski mountain, Gaisberg, with its gentle slopes; more experienced skiers will beat most of Kitzbühel's clientele on to the Hahnenkamm by taking one of the less-crowded routes up from outside the village.

Long term meteorological studies have shown that Kirchberg's local slopes have a good snow record, averaging 124 days of cover per year, and 50% of the slopes are backed up by snow making equipment to be doubly safe. There are five ski schools operating in the area: the Schischule Kirchberg, Skischule Kirchberg Activ, Skischule KiWest and a Privat Skischule with Schischule Aschau based in the neighbouring village. All five offer a variety of tuition programs for all levels.

Night skiing was introduced recently, accessed via the Gaisfeg chairlift.

There are even more cross-country trails than downhill piste, just, with 220km (137 miles) of prepared tracks around the Kitzbühel Valley (45km / 28 miles locally).

Snowboarding in Kirchberg in Tirol

Snowboarders are welcome on all pistes with the runs near the Fleckalmbahn and Penglstein particularly popular. Both the main ski schools offer snowboarding courses. The local snowboard park with half pipe is supplemented by an additional one across on the Kitzbühelerhorn.

Kirchberg in Tirol Aprés Ski

Kirchberg has a very lively centre which attracts young Germans and Dutch in particular. Popular spots include the Londoner Pub (not to be confused with the equally popular establishment of the same name in Kitzbühel) and le Boomerang. Night time toboggan runs, sleigh rides or other 'Tyrolean themed' evenings are also popular. In the latter category a spot of accordion music and trying your voice box for yodelling talent is always amusing.

Many visitors are unable to resist an evening trip to the bright lights of Kitzbühel, perhaps taking in the heavily promoted casino there.
