Kitzbuhel tips?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I have a meeting in Kitzbuhel in two weeks and I will have five days there, with plenty of time to ski.  Though it is early season, it appears they've been getting quite a bit of snow (unlike us here in Colorado!).  I've never been to Kitz before, and I wonder what are the must-do's if things are generally open?  I'm a solid double-black-XX skier, with very extensive off-piste and ski-mountaineering experience.  Are there ski guides one can hire so I don't flounder around missing the best skiing?

 

Thanks,

 

Rich

Kitzbuhel area is pretty low altitude. As long as this cold front sticks around and drops snow, you're ok. But, if things warm back up a bit, you might need to travel west to the higher mountains for decent skiing.

 

Wherever you end up skiing, there should be a guide company in town or a tourist office with a list of guides.

I just made quite a long post in another theard about it:

I've been racking my brains trying to remember which company we  used  ... it's the ski school with royal blue outfits. Our guide was named Albert. Good guide, kind of young and cocky and made fun of Americans, though, so I wish you would request him and show him what's what.
