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 :-)

From newly registered snowhead.

Hi, we're off to austria (myself, wife and kids) mid march. I would appreciate info on best runs for intermediate boarder, if there is such a thing, and also shop / leisure facilities for family - non skiers as yet.

Top site btw. Isn't technology great! wink

Kitzbuhel is a very pretty old town so it's a great place just to wander around, good shopping but like all ski resorts heavily geared to sking. There is a superb leisure complex, swimming pool, spa etc., entry is included on your lift pass so what the cost is without a pass, I haven't a clue.

There are two main areas in Kitz, the Horn and the Hahnenkamm. Boarders like the Horn. It is sunny and open and has a fun park. There can be a bit of walking to do on some of the Hahnenkamm runs. Don't miss the red Raintal run on the hOrn. I'd start out on the Horn and when you have had enough of that try the other way. Ski busses link the two areas, but they get less frequent in the middle of the day. It's great for non-skiers and there are TO trips to Innsbruck and Salzburg. There can be a bit of walking round the town, but it's one of those places you come to love. I've been 3 times and can gladly answer detail questions (if I know the answer) but I am a skier.

For this year I wouldn't worry at all. It may be low but it is cold and there is plenty on the ground at present. I was there at Christmas and there was plenty then and they have had about 2m since!

Enjoy! snowHead

Peter Ross, I've skiied there the first week in March and it was fine. They currently have double the snow depth now compared to the year I went so it should be fine.

Many thanx all for your help.

Chris Bish: I have heard the Raintal is lush. Madeye-Smiley We are staying near Lake Schwarzsee, I would expect taxis will be the best way to get around?

Can't wait to see the swimming poo, it will be worth the trip alone. Laughing

There are fairly regular ski buses from Kirchberg to Kitz that pass by the Schwartzsee. You will also not be a huge distance from the Fleckalmbahn, which takes you straight to the heart of the best skiing on the Hahnenkamm.

And there is also a link to the bergbahn website and eventually to a pdf file that gives the bus times. They are not abundant but do exist. Plenty of good snow though, so what the heck! snowHead

And another thing. There is a station in Kitzbuhel so you can get around by train if you are a non-skier. Most ski schools operate on the Horn in a nice little sunny bowl in the middle. Why not sign up the family for beginner lessons and visit from time to time. This would be easy to achieve and there are good restaurants on hand too. The Alpenhaus for example, which is at the bottom of the fun-park. snowHead
