Kühtai Ski Resort

Kühtai ski resort is located in between the Ö​tztal and the Stubai mountain ranges and is just 35km from Innsbruck. Boasting doorstep skiing, a snow-sure record and breathtaking scenery, it’s one of the highest ski resorts in Austria.

This relatively unknown, small and quiet ski resort is one of Austria’s best hidden gems. A modern gondola and other fast chairlifts make it easy and efficient to reach a variety of runs from cruising blues to blacks.

When the snow is worse lower down the valley, Kühtai ski resort becomes more popular with locals. There are numerous hotels and apartments in the area as well as a fitness centre and a few bars that become livelier on most weekends.
