New Ski Circuit In Austria’s Tyrol
24th January 2022
As Austria reopens for most British skiers and boarders, there is a new ski circuit between the Skiwelt and the Kitzski area which claims to be the longest circuit in the world at 88km.
The 88km (55 mile) long route links the slopes of a dozen ski villages in the huge SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser-Brixental region and its near neighbour the KitzSki region around Kitzbühel.
The circuit incorporates 58 slopes, 29 on blue, 28 red and one black and involves an incredible 17,232 metres of vertical ascent and descent in total and involves taking 46 lifts for ascents and also requires a three-minute shuttle bus connection between the two giant ski regions which you’ll need to take twice. It’s possible to start this new circuit at any point on the route.
The connection between SkiWelt and KitzSki means guests can ski from Going am Wilden Kaiser across to the Kitzbühel Alps to Hollersbach in the Hohe Tauern by never using the same slope twice and creating what the region is claiming as the longest ski circuit in the world.
All the lifts on the circuit are covered by one lift pass, the KitzSkiWelt Ticket, with tickets for the ski circuit costing from €57 per adult and €28.50 per child.
