Ski tour to the Hahnenkamm over the Asten

In the winter months, the Asten run is open daily for ski tourers until 10 p.m.! Rejoice and walk one of the most popular slopes - the Hahnenkamm - even in the evening. Tourers can march up Kitzbühel's local mountain every evening on the Asten run (No. 20).

Normally, snow groomers work intensively on the descent for the next day. Especially for our touring ski lovers, the "piste groomers" make allowances. This creates a time window for danger-free tours - and all this very close to the "Gamsstadt".

Please pay attention to the currently signposted notices or information about short-term closures on site.

For a comfortable descent on Friday evening, the Hahnenkamm cable car will be in operation until 23:00. So, for all those who come later on tours: - up the mountain - on to the Hahnenkamm!
