Skiing in Autumn
At the latest from autumn onwards perfectly groomed pistes and powder snow are waiting on the Kitzsteinhorn.
The Glacier Park (2.900m) with its different obstacles, which were largely hand made by the finest work of the Kitzsteinhorn crew, is expected to open at 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.
*Please note: The operating hours of the glacier lifts depend on weather, snow and operating conditions. Ski lifts are operating at sufficient snow conditions at the earliest october 3rd. For hikers and day guests (non-skiers) the Kitzsteinhorn is opened all year round.
Glacier skiing in winter
Wide glacial slopes with natural snow, varied routes for freeriders, three snow parks and Austria’s largest super-pipe for freestylers – Kitzsteinhorn offers an unequalled range of winter sports opportunities.

Skiwinter in Zell am See - Kaprun
The ski pass Zell am See-Kaprun is the key for 50 cable cars and lifts and 138 km of pistes in Kaprun and Zell am See.
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.
