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 :-)

Austria: Kitzbühel/Kirchberg 2018/19

Fantastic day today in Kitzbuhel. Cold and sunny with great powder just all day long pretty much!
It was noticeably busier on the pistes today and it’s not peak holiday time yet.

Heading to Kirchberg on Friday for a long weekend. Anything you would recommend? Areas to avoid? pistes, mountain restaurants, apres ski spots, village restaurants. Two thirty odd year olds who enjoy a good party, great food & ski anywhere.
thanks snowHead

The bar / restaurant on top of the Hannenkham gondola berg station is very nice and very popular with locals on a Saturday afternoon, cracking big sun terrace and good dj's with decent house music. For looking so posh and pricey it isn't actually that expensive....gets a good party going on a Saturday from about 2.30pm onwards as locals enjoy a their mountain without so many tourists and its easy for them to get drunk and then download on the lift. you will need to book a table if you go there. https://www.beitomschy.at/

for you its one easy lift (magic carpet) and then a top to bottom ski run to get back to Kirchberg and then hit one of the more traditional après venues in Kirchberg, or if you leave a bit earlier and ski 3/4's way back to kirchberg then two good stops are either the Maierl...on the left just after the short black section of piste, again very nice bar, big sun terrace and good house music, one of my favourite's in the area...or just a bit further down the same run on the right there is a more traditional euro pop style hut...cant remember its main but you will hear it!

@Liam, hi. I’m here for the season. Well to be honest I’ve not had any food anywhere in the area that’s been rubbish. It’s all tasty and good value. I’ve no complaints.
Another fantastic day in Kitzbuhel. Blue skies and some freshies to be had here and there. Snow was a bit variable in places. All in all a good day.

@VolklAttivaS5, hey, lucky you...a full season! Sounds like you've had a good day in the mountains.
I've skied quite a bit throughout Austria so know what to expect in terms of food, beer and fantastic hospitality!

if you see two guys who can ski pretty well, but cant drink for toffee, do say hallo! snowHead Toofy Grin

ps: fingers crossed the forecasted increase in temps doesn't actually happen and the snow stays good.

@Liam, hmmm may be tricky to pick you out in the crowds!

There’s so much snow here now it would take some prolonged very warm temperatures over at least a couple of weeks to have any reasonable effect I’d say.
I think you will be more than satisfied!

@VolklAttivaS5, in terms of snow conditions - i'm referring more so to the freeze-thaw effect due to the unusually warm temps that have been forecast which generate bullet proof snow conditions in the morning and slushfest in the afternoon! i'm sure we'll be fine though. Very Happy

For anyone in Kitz / Kirchberg this Friday evening, check out the horse racing! https://www.kitzbueheler-alpen.com/en/kirchberg/events/horse-race-on-snow.html

Another lovely clear sunny day in the Kitzbüheler Alpen region.
Had a nice day yesterday skiing over to Pass Thurn and back.
Today I’m off to the Ski Welt.

Another sunny day today but the snow is still in excellent condition all over the Kitzbuhel area and in the Ski Welt. Bit scraped in places but that’s because it’s got busy now it’s February and there’s a lot more piste traffic. Still loads and loads of snow off piste although it was pretty hard and crusty today so I didn’t bother. I did get a short pitch of lovely snow because I’d caught it just right but that was all today.

Hi all - we've flights booked to Munich on 16th March for 4 days skiing and have spotted potential accommodation in Kirchberg. Is it relatively safe to book this now (bearing in mind the season it has been) or should we wait to closer to ensure enough snow?

@mdrumm, given how much snow there has been and more to come next week I think there will be plenty of snow left. What is unknown is how the weather will pan out after the next week, maybe it will stay relatively cold and snowy or maybe spring will arrive early (it is warm in the sun here today just to the east of Munich). You might find typical spring conditions, ie good mid morning but best to spend the afternoon on a sunny terrace. Kitzbühel is a better option than Skiwelt or some of the other nearby places as there is a certain amount of high level skiing and the resort will stay "open" until the end of April (though this will be no more than a couple of pistes).

If you are concerned then places like Obertauern, Serfaus or Obergurgl would be alternatives.

The 16th of March is the end of peak season so accommodation should be much easier to come by, if you wait you should (hopefully!) still be able to find places.

Just at Worgl. Last train leg after a smooth journey from Manchester. Looking forward to a good weekend in Kitzbuhel / Kirchberg! Would recommend the train service from Munich. Very efficient

Yes, you guessed it, another sunny day in Kitzbuhel.
This afternoon I skinned up to the top of the Bichlalm, skied down to the Bichlalm restaurant which is very nice decor-wise but oh my goodness expensive. €4.50 for a glass of squash (schiwasser)! I hadn’t twigged the price of it until I got the bill I just assumed it was the usual €2.50 ish. The Kaiserschmarrn wasn’t a patch on the one I had at my last visit here either, burned on the bottom of some bits and a farty little portion for €14.50!!!
You live and learn.
My own fault for not looking at the menu first as I’d been here before when it was new a few seasons ago.
I think the prices have gone up!

It has been puking with snow since this morning in the Kitzbüheler Alps region with more snow due tomorrow. It’s fantastic. I’ve been skiing knee deep powder to the side of the pistes all morning.
Anyway-does anyone that likes off piste skiing want to share a guide with me on Friday this week? It’s forecast to be sunny after Wednesday.
If you do then PM me for details, it’s a pretty good deal.

We skied at St Johann today. We were turned away from both the gondola station car parks in town as they were full and ended up at Oberndorf.
So I expected the pistes to be packed. It turned out that was completely wrong. I think the locals must have been sitting around at the mountain huts as the pistes were pretty quiet!
The snow was actually in pretty good nick despite the warm weather.

We found the same yesterday - lifts were rammed but pistes deserted. When we had lunch at the top of the Harschbichl we realised where everyone was - it was packed out! Fantastic chicken and chips up there if you’re hungry! Enjoy your week, sad to be home today!
