Spring / Summer 2015
Glacier firn skiing*
Luscious green in the valley, sparkling white on the Kitzsteinhorn. Skiers and snowboarders will find glistening firn-coverd slopes until early summer. Even in summer the Kitzsteinhorn invites with its bright and sunny glacier runs. In Austria’s first glacier ski region at the Kitzsteinhorn the cable cars and lifts are opened until mid of july for all skiers and snowboarders.
Summer on the Kitzsteinhorn is an experience in itself. Right next to the Hohe Tauern National Park and situated amidst the highest mounatins in Ausstria, the high alpine nature is at its most spectacular. Up on the glacier the snow defies even the high summer temperatures down in the valley. Mighty rock formations jut out among the green hilltops and meadows strewn with flowers. The crystal clear mountain streams are a welcome source of refreshment and the panoramic views make one feel very humble indeed.
* Please note: Shortened period of ski service until May 25th
Due to construction work of the new cable ways “Gletscherjet 3 + 4” and new structuring of the central glacier skiing area the lifts and slopes are opened in summer 2015 only until May, 25th. After the summer break the ski service starts again in autumn 2015. For non-skiers the cable ways on the Kitzsteinhorn are opened all year round.
Pure freedom at 3.000 metres
The legend of the Kitzsteinhorn: more than just a glacier, it's THE Glacier. In Salzburg's highest skiing region, the clocks tick differently. At the latest from autumn onwards perfectly groomed pistes and powder snow are waiting: Wheter on the ski runs, on the freeride routes or in the snow parks - choose from an unique diversity of possibilities.
The Glacier Park (2.900m) with its different obstacles, which were largely hand made by the finest work of the Kitzsteinhorn crew, is already open from mid/end of october.
Ski Touring Autumn
Ski touring fans can be happy about the special offers, in autumn, on the Kitzsteinhorn: two sign-postes ski touring routes, an Info Point on Langwiedboden and selected gastronomy for endurance athletes.
Fireworks of Events
The countless autumn and early winter events in the white glacier snow are as colourful as the autumn leaves in the valley.
