KITZBUEHEL TRIP REPORT, February, 2018
Alphorn Ski Association had a wonderful trip to Kitzbuehel, Austria. The snow this season all over Europe was plentiful and Kitzbuehel was no exception. We arrived after a non-stop flight from Philadelphia to Munich early in the morning, ready to get on to our bus for the ride to the resort.
The Tiefenbrunner Hotel faced the walking district of the town, which was established in the 11th century. There have been some changes over the last 10 years, which were not obviously to be seen, but what an experience! Most of the buildings had galley ways going towards the back and viola you ended up at an indoor plaza with glass elevators going down 5 stories to a gallery of shops on each level. Everything had been constructed without disturbing the integrity of the buildings within the city walls dating to the 14th century.
Our group got used to the routine- dinner at 7:30 PM until midnight and up early to our meeting point at the back of the hotel at 9:00 AM ready to ski. The big surprise was the skiing experience. Kitzbuehel, home of the Hahnenkamm has 47 lifts, but for an additional 5 Euros per day you could expand your skiing experience to a total of 487 lifts and 1,275 km of trails. We took advantage of that ski pass and skied from Kitzbuehel to Mittersill on one end and to Kirchberg and Aschau on the other end and from there we took a connecting Gondola and expended our total for another 87 lifts in the “Ski World” of the Wilde Kaiser area. Many times we were too tired to ski back to Kitzbuehel, but we made it back in time of closing of the lifts at 4:30 PM by bus. All 14 participants came home safely and I hope with great memories of our 30th trip to the Alps.
