The 14th most popular snowboarding destination in Austria.
Sunday 17 December 2017 06:26 GMT
Southwest of Innsbruck and southeast of Landeck, the Kuhtai ski area has 19 pistes totaling 37km served by 11 lifts accessing a maximum vertical drop of 800m. The high base elevation of the town at 2,020m means there's consistently good snow conditions. The slopes are divided on both sides of the valley so there is usually a sunnyside and a shadyside that holds fresh snow longer. If you are looking for some challenge, try the black pistes accessible from the Weisberg t-bar lift or the Gaiskogel t-bar lift. The off-piste lines are rarely explored here.
The best on-mountain dining for lunch is up at the Zum Kaiser Maximillian, but you’ll want to also check out Dorfstadl and 3SeenHutte. When it comes to apres ski, keep in mind that this valley becomes pretty quiet once the lifts stop spinning. For some nightlife, try the Yeti Bar, the Yellow Umbrella or the Kuhtaier Dorfstadl.
To reach the snowboarding at Kuhtai from Innsbruck, the main option is the Post bus.
Overall, Kuhtai is the 14th most popular snowboard & freeride destination of all 67 snowboarding resorts in Austria.
