The town itself is a fantastic medieval place to be. Full of shops, bars and restaurants - not that most of them were there when it was first built.

Loads of varied slopes, and an easy network of lifts to use. The lifties are very friendly and eager to help should you need it.

When we went, sadly there was a very distinct lack of snow. Very icey slopes and not a whole lot of off piste to play in. But what snow there was, the Austrians took good care of. Lots of preparation was taking place while we were there for the coming downhill racing so parts of the home run were sectioned off. Still, a great place to ski though.

Kitzbuhel is a brilliant place to ski with a large area for skiing involved. The snow is always next to perfect with the slopes being good for all levels of skier. The area isn't very challenging for the more advanced skier but the all round place is lovely with stunning views from the top of the Austrian Alps. The village area is very lively and buzzing with younger people in the modern bars but also thrives with old traditional bars in the center.

Overall a lovely place.

We were unsure what the skiing would be like just before heading to Kitzbuhel as the snow reports hadn't been great. But there was nothing to worry about as the snow conditions were still excellent, due to heavy snow the month before and the large number of snow cannons in the resort. The skiing itself was excellent, some challenging blacks as well as plenty of cruisers for the less experienced skier. I skied the Hannenkahm a few times, although since the world cup race this had been left to turn to a mogul field at the bottom.

The ski area itself seemed fairly expansive due to the new 3S cable car linking across to Jochberg and Pass Thurn. The only downside was that it closed one day whilst we were over in Jochberg because of high winds, which meant a 40 minute bus ride back (although thats covered on your ski pass). In the opposite direction you head towards Kirchberg, which is very quiet compared to the Kitzbuhel slopes, and we actually sussed out how close you are to the Soll area (just a 10min ride from there).

The town seemed a little quieter than we expected, but there were still plenty of good bars which stayed open fairly late, including the obligatory Irish bar! Also a decent choice of restaurants, although we had opted for a half board hotel package so we didn't use the restaurants.

Overall I would say an obvious choice for any level of skier, due to the range of slopes - and don't let the lower altitude put you off.
