Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Apparently they have been talking about that gondola for a while but only just got around to it. It was always a nice run but rarely used because of the old rickety 2 person lift with carpets over the knees.
Interesting to hear the idea of linking with St Johann.
Big pancake snowflakes today. Going to ski afternoon since Mrs Dougie want to look at some shops. Not arguing too much as enjoyed myself a little too much watching “Frog On The Tyne” playing at O’Flanagan’s last night!

When I went to Kitzbuhel (only been once) the Horn was closed all week due to some technical problem so maybe that’s why they have put the new gondola in.

The new gondola, over the back in the Raintal, isn't part of the access to the Horn, so it wouldn't be involved in any problem which shutdown the whole area.

@Dougie, is it possible to ski from Kitzbuhel to the bottom of Ki-West, or do you have to get a bus? Am already planning my Feb trip to Kitzbuhel Happy
Thanks in advance!

@geoff10, There is a shuttle bus between Ki West and the Pengelstein gondola. In my experience it is pretty efficient, I cant remember waiting longer than 5 minutes or so. Maybe given the right conditions it is possible to ski off piste between the two areas (more likely from Kitzbühel to Ski Welt) through the trees and on forest tracks but would require a lot of local knowledge.

@munich_irish, I haven’t been for a few years but from memory you can plot your way down through the trees to hit the road opposite Ki-West.

I'll be staying in Kirchberg for two weeks from 13th Jan with my husband. The weather forecast is looking promising! This will be our first trip to the area (indeed, our first ski trip to Austria).

I am looking for recommendations of instructors who can show us around offpiste. We've got avi gear etc and I have a certain amount of knowledge of how to stay safe off piste but I'd like to spend a day or two exploring a bit further afield than I would be comfortable navigating on my own.

If anyone is in the area and wants to meet up for a ski then let me know. We're both competent skiers.

@geoff10, Sorry I have not replied quicker. You cannot ski directly to the bottom of Ki-West. There are lots of buses but the bottom of Penglestein I is the quickest. Since the Steinbergkogel was closed today, we skied to the bottom of the Mairl and the bus came within a couple of minutes.
We skied over Westendorf and into Brixen to find the gonodola back to Brixen was shut. Had a fantastic day skiing to Ellmau and back to Brixen before getting the bus back to Kitzbuhel, all on the ski pass, so not extra cost.
Edit: Can’t ski directly on pistes but sounds like you can off pistes.

Skied in Kitzbuhel yesterday. A bit more open than earlier in the week. Snow was superb!
There’s even more open today too so those coming out at the weekend hopefully should have a good week.

Can't wait!

Now I need to make a decision about which skis to bring. I'm out for two weeks, staying in Kirchberg.

I'll definitely bring my new dynastar x96 and touring boots. But the pistes look great too. I could bring my telemark gear and try to actually get good at that. Or I could bring my alpine boots and piste skis and hoon around. Both options involve bringing two sets of boots but I can handle that. Decisions, decisions.

Matwall is in a similar dilemma. He's going to bring his 'new' (i.e. my old) whitedot directors so that the two of us can do a little bit of touring. They're not great for piste skiing tho. I don't suppose his slalom skis are the right choice in these conditions. I guess he could always hire something out there. I'm assuming it's not crazy expensive to rent skis out there?

Went over to Kitzbühel today skied down to the Maierlbahn had an early lunch of Kasespatzel whilst waiting for the next bus to Ki-West. Then went over to Westendorf and skied all over Westendorf including down to Brixen Im Thale and back.
It’s been snowing all day and getting heavier since lunchtime. Big fat snowflakes again, the trees can barely take much more. In fact on the way back to Kitzbuhel Hahnenkamm I saw a broken tree right across the trunk where it had snapped off midway presumably under the weight of snow.
Westendorf was soooo snowy and pretty deserted actually compared to Kitzbuhel.

A couple folks have been killed this week by falling trees groaning under wet snow in Austria.

@Whitegold, I can believe it.
I suspect that could be another reason apart from the risk of avalanche why there are signs everywhere telling you to stay on the pistes.
There’s some seriously deep tree wells forming as well.
Loads of signs in town about being careful about the snow slipping off rooves too.

Fab afternoon in Jochberg skiing lots of nice snow just to the side of the piste. After a very cloudy windy morning it brightened up nicely.
Best day of the season so far (since Jan 5th for me)

It’s a beautiful day in Kitzbuhel today. Stunning.
It’s nice and fresh with clear blue skies. It makes the efforts of the past couple of weeks with the bumper snowfall all worth it (hard work for the locals and resort staff etc) to appreciate views like these today.
Anyone coming out at the weekend is in for a treat!
