Freeriding in Kitzbühel
The first Alpine ski run down from the Kitzbüheler Horn was in March 1893. The enthusiasm for snow and skiing has taken a firm hold ever since. Kitzbühel’s grass-covered mountains are perfect for every freerider.
As meadows cover the slopes up to the peaks, a mere 50 centimetres of snow is all that’s needed for powder snow perfection. You can of course tackle all the peaks yourself. Ski tourers love the great overview and easy accessibility of the Kitzbühel Alps. The backcountry covers more than 200 square kilometres, offering plenty of space for solitary mountain experiences. Off the beaten ‘Streif’ track, untouched powder snow and glorious nature await.
Kitzbühel is also blessed in the snow – there are many powder snow slopes below the tree line, which means they can be used even in less than optimal weather conditions. Huge fields of powder, narrow gullies and spectacular cliff drops await lovers of pristine slopes and sporting challenges away from the groomed routes.
If you want to experience the limitless freeriding fun in Kitzbühel, please always pay attention to the daily avalanche warning report and only ski on unsecured terrain if you are carrying the appropriate safety gear. Should you not have the relevant experience or want to refresh your knowledge of backcountry basics, we recommend our local freeride guides, who will guide you safely through powder snow-covered terrain in the Kitzbühel Alps
