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.
