Kitzsteinhorn

The ski area in Kaprun

Skiers, carvers and boarders get a sense of pure freedom on the Kitzsteinhorn. Pistes groomed to perfection, with a variety black, red and blue runs makes the heart of every snowfreak pound. There is something for everyone: On the glacier plateau there is a perfect area for beginners.

Professionals, (or anyone who would like to become one), can measure their speed on the permanent race track, or you could train till you drop on the mogul piste. Three snow parks, for all ability levels, sum up the Kitzsteinhorn experience. The Kitzsteinhorn-Glacier is only 10 minutes away from Piesendorf Niedernsill.

 

 

WE’RE BRINGING TOGETHER, WHAT BELONGS TOGETHER

The K-onnection to the future: Kaprun – Maiskogel – Kitzsteinhorn

This gondola link is a long-held dream come true. 

Directly from the village of Kaprun with the aid of two new gondola lifts, first up the Maiskogel, from
there to the Langwiedboden and the very heart of the Kitzsteinhorn glacier ski area!
Ski-in-Ski-out, 100% snow guarantee from October until well into springtime, along with a wealth of new opportunities – priceless benefits that further solidify Zell am See-Kaprun’s position as a top destination in the Alps. For unsurpassed winter sports, memorable family holidays or high-alpine sightseeing that reaches all the way to the TOP OF SALZBURG at 3,029 meters above sea level.
As of December 2019, an ultra-modern tri-cable gondola, the 3K Kaprun-Kitzsteinhorn-K-onnection, will link the Maiskogel with the Kitzsteinhorn.
With this K-onnection, the Maiskogel family ski area essentially fuses with the Kitzsteinhorn glacier ski area to create a single compelling ski destination. This new, second access means of riding up to the Kitzsteinhorn isn’t the only reason holidays will now become more attractive than ever: 

Beginning in December 2018, Maiskogel Family Mountain will also offer guests added comfort and convenience, along with whole new dimensions and perspectives, in the form of a 10-passenger gondola known as the MK Maiskogel Lift.
Also under development at the valley terminal of the MK Maiskogel Lift, right in the heart of Kaprun, is the Kaprun-Center: a service hub with ticket offices, a ski depot with over 2,000 storage lockers and a modern sports shop. 

HIGHLIGHTS: The direct K-onnection from Kaprun up to the Glacier. 
This new connection essentially fuses the Maiskogel family ski area with the always-snowy glacier ski area to create a single compelling ski destination. 

Total Convenience - Ski-in-Ski-Out 
On foot from your hotel to the gondola. Now ride the new, ultra-modern MK and 3K lifts, first up the Maiskogel, then to the heart of the glacier ski area, where great snow conditions are 100% guaranteed. And when your winter sports are over for the day, hop back on board the lift with skis in tow for an enjoyable ride down to the valley, all the way back to the town center of Kaprun. 

Maiskogel Family Mountain - more summer experiences 
Thanks to the new MK Maiskogel Lift, Kaprun becomes more attractive than ever for families and their children. This lift will also run in summer, providing convenient access to the hiking paths and bike trails close to town.

Superlative Lift Axis 
With the longest lift axis (a 12 km-long continuous string of pearls rising from 768 m to 3,029 m) as well as the greatest elevation gain (2,261 m) in the Eastern Alps, the K-onnection proudly boasts several superlatives.
