Ski tour areas in the Kitzbüheler Alpen

Wilder Kaiser

Many ski tours in the Wilder Kaiser are quite often available right into May (Schneekar, Griesner Kar). Even in the depths of winter a few are possible and the rugged rock formations of the Kaiser mountain range provide inspiration on each individual tour. The starting point for Wilder Kaiser tour are the Wochenbrunnalm, the car parking area beneath Graspoint Niederalm and Kaiserbachtal (the toll road is only open in spring).

Kelchsau

Kelchsau is a long valley running north to south, branching off near Hopfgarten in Brixental. At the toll area the valley branches out into Kurzen Grund (right) and Langen Grund (left). There are also a great deal of lovely tours to the left and right of the road when you are coming here (Lodron – 1925m, Schwaigberghorn – 1990m). Base points which provide a variety of opportunities include Gasthof Wegscheid (1148m), Neue Bambergerhütte (1761m) and Erla Brennhütte (1213m). From the summits in the Kelchsau (Schneegrubenspitze, Salzachgeier, Schafsiedel etc.) there is a superb view to the Hohe Tauern and the Großvenediger.

Windau

Windautal ('Die Windau' as the locals call it) is a valley running north to south which is not quite as long, which branches from Westendorf and runs parallel to the Kelchsautal. Gasthof Jagerhäusl (815m) is at the half-way point. This is the starting point for tours to the Lodron (1925m) and the Brechhorn (2037m), in winter Gasthof Steinberghaus (878m) is the final station. Ski tours proceed from there to Gerstinger Joch (2035m) and the Steinbergstein (2215m). Those of you who don't dread longer, flat passages will find other worthwhile destinations at the head of the valley, like the Gamskogel (2206m) and Geige (2084m).

Spertental

Spertental, which proceeds from Kirchberg in Tirol to the romantic town of Aschau, is the third lateral valley running north to south in Brixental. Just after Aschau the valley splits into the Oberen Grund (right) and the Unteren Grund (left), where there is also a large car park available (1025m). Brechhorn (2037m) and Gerstinger Joch (2035m) can be scaled from Windau, and also from the east. Further down in the valley there are lots of other lovely summits. Even the Große Rettenstein (2366m) has been tackled on skis.

Auracher Graben

Auracher Graben is very popular with local people because it is easy to get to, is snow-assured and provides plenty of variety. There is a large parking area (1045m) at the only right-hand bend on the road from Aurach to Aurach wildlife park. From here it is around 30 minutes on a forest trail to open terrain and where you have to decide between numerous summits: Gebra (2057m), Bischof (2127m), Sonnspitz (20262m), Staffkogel (2115m) or the Saalkogel (2006m).
The ski schools, with their qualified mountain guides and ski guides, take you safely up to the loveliest summits and into the softest deep snow slopes in the Kitzbüheler Alpen. Please pay heed to the recommendations from Tirol and Salzburg avalanche warning services before each excursion.

Rules for piste-goers in the Kitzbüheler Alpen

Safe & Fair! 10 recommendations from the Austrian Alpine Safety Authority Dear Piste Users, you are responsible for your own welfare when you are out and about on the pistes. Alpine hazards, in particular the risk of avalanche are factors which you have to assess for yourself. Bring emergency equipment with you. Ski pistes are in the first instance available to cable car and ski lift users. To avoid any accidents and conflicts we would ask you to pay heed to the FIS rules of conduct and also to the following recommendations:

1. Pay attention to warning notices and also local regulations.

2. Follow the instructions when a piste is closed - completely or in sections. Dangerous situations may arise when machinery is being used on the pistes – in particular machinery which have cable winches - or in the event of avalanches being triggered, etc. Pistes may be closed for safety reasons for the duration of the work.

3. Only ascend in single file at the edge of the pistes.

4. Only cross a piste at clear sections and when there is sufficient room to do so.

5. Only use the edge of any freshly prepared pistes. Tracks which have been frozen overnight can greatly impair the quality of the pistes.

6. Leave the pistes by 10:30 p.m. or at the time stipulated by the cable car company.

7. Be seen. Use a head lamp, wear reflective clothing etc. when it is dark or there is poor visibility.

8. For piste tours in particular, only use the dedicated ascent routes/pistes.

9. Do not bring dogs on to the pistes with you.

10. Use the designated car parking areas and pay any car parking fees.
