Kitzbuhel, Austria

It’s hard to say whether Austria is better known for its music or its skiing, but it is easy to say that for skiing enthusiasts, Austria is a dream come true. With the awe-inspiring peaks and runs of Innsbruck, Montafon, Kitzbuhel and Arlberg the hardest part of skiing in Austria is deciding where to go.....

Innsbruck has twice hosted the Winter Olympics because of its world-class facilities and ski runs. There are six different areas for skiing and snowboarding in Innsbruck, each offering a slightly different set of challenges and amenities. A Super Ski Pass is available for all areas and includes 200 lifts and 310 miles of skiing terrain.
When you’re taking a break from skiing, Innsbruck also has ice climbing, shopping, the Alpine Zoo, historic sights and first-class dining.
Montafon valley offers 66 railways and ski lifts, ten skiing schools, 122 miles of downhill ski runs and 62 miles of cross-country trials. The Montafon Skipass is a combination ticket that includes all railways, lifts and bus posts in the valley.
Winter hiking trails and toboggan runs, as well as quaint villages also permeate the  Montafon valley. Dreamland, a kids area, also offers ice skating, tennis and skiing.

Kitzbuhel boasts 60 lifts, 99 miles of manicured ski pistes and 31 miles of snowboarding carving areas. It is also home to the world-famous Hahnenkammrennen ski race.
Fine dining, nightlife and a full-service casino make Kitzbuhel the perfect destination for those who want to ski all day and party all night.
The Arlberg region is the birthplace of modern Alpine skiing and 85 lifts and 161 miles of downhill terrain. A variety of ski schools, from professional to beginner make the Ahrlberg region the perfect place to learn or hone your skiing skills. Ski bars, world-class resorts and fine dining make the Ahrlberg region a wonderful place to stay if you like to be pampered at the end of the day.
Ice skating, curling, tobogganing and sleigh rides are also fun ways to spend the time in Arlberg.
