Kaprun ski area
The skiing season in Kaprun starts early autumn and extends into early summer. On the Kitzsteinhorn glacier you can ski and snowboard on snow-covered slopes for ten months of the year.
Skiers and snowboarders can expect first-class snow quality on the pistes, like the famous Black Mamba piste, between 3.029 and 2.000 metres above sea level. Real winter sport fans find what their heart desires on challenging freeride routes in first-class snow parks, on ski touring routes or on the glacier cross-country ski track. Special Freeride Info Points convey knowhow and knowledge; skills and safety in the backcountry are at centre stage on Freeride Mondays. The infrastructure at the Kitzsteinhorn is top: state-of-the-art cable cars take you uphill to 3.000 m while a wide range of culinary delights from the lower terminus 911 m above sea level to Salzburg’s highest-situated restaurant at the summit terminus 3.029 m above sea level complement your day of skiing conveniently.
There are five freeride runs across the Kitzsteinhorn Glacier Ski Resort: Ice Age, Westside Story, Left Wing, Jump Run, and Pipe Line, all with 100 per cent snow reliability, thanks to the resort’s altitude of 3,000m. Experienced skiers will find powder lines, cliff jumps and pipes around the Kitzsteinhorn. The Freeride XXL signposting system provides information about skiing the glacier, while the Freeride Info Base has up-to-date information about the routes, weather, snow conditions, and avalanche warning levels.
