With a helping hand from the free magic carpet lifts, finding your ski legs could not be easier. In Kirchberg itself, there's a nice, gentle nursery slope by Gaisberg, but for more variety you'll have to hop on a ski bus round to Kitzbühel. Once you've conquered these runs, there are some good progressive slopes on the Kitzbüheler horn.
The cable-car links to Kitzbühel means that keen intermediates looking to explore have the whole ski area at their fingertips. The Kitzbühel ski circuit has loads of swooping, wooded blue and red runs, and the Wurzhöhe area in particular is known for its wide variety of slopes for mixed-ability intermediates - ideal for whether you're still perfecting your technique or trying to catch some speed.
There aren't many challenging runs on Kirchberg's side of the mountain, but once over in Kitzbühel, you'll have an excellent range of long, winding reds and tricky blacks to get stuck into. Many determined and adventurous skiers will head straight to the world-famous Hahnenkamm Streif to try and beat the world record, but if that loses its novelty, you can try out some of the region's steepest slopes, concentrated in the Steinbergkogel-Ehrenbachgraben area.
Access some of the most beautiful places in the region on a network of free cross-country skiing tracks that are open to both classic and skating styles of all different levels. Drift along the Pillerseetal Valley, skate across the foot of the Rettenstein or cruise the high-altitude trails in Kirchdorf and Aschau. There are a few floodlit trails for night owls, too.
Wide powder fields, narrow gullies and spectacular cliff drops make Kitzbühel an exhilarating destination for off-piste skiing. The locals swear by the Kitzbühelerhorn area, with varied terrain and nice slow lifts to help you recover. If you want to explore further, the easily accessible backcountry descents stretch across an area of 200km.
