The biggest of all Events in Kitzbuehel’s annual calender

Hahnenkamm (the name translates to “Rooster’s Comb”), a mountain in the ski resort town of Kitzbühel, is home to the world’s most notorious, dangerous, blood-curdling downhill racecourse for men, called the “Streif” (or the “Stripe”). It’s a wicked, twisting, insane snake of a run, one filled with blind drops, daredevil jumps, and unforgiving grade steeps, challenging an international roster of top athletes for an incredible weekend of downhill ski racing each year. In 2021, this legendary race will be held for the 81st time from January 18 to 24. Skiing the Hahnenkamm is a harrowing experience from start to finish. It is skiing’s ultimate test of guts for glory on the world’s most famous and feared ribbon of snow and ice. The slick, steep, twisty track propels the skiers up to speeds as fast as 140kph. The Mausefalle jump (‘Mousetrap’ in English), reached in just over eight seconds from the start, has a gradient of 85% and launches the racers 80 meters through the air. Fast and exciting, yes. Come see all the action and athleticism from the world’s best male ski racers, starting with the juniors on Tuesday and Wednesday, with the Super-G on Friday, the Downhill on Saturday and the Slalom on Ganslernhang Course on Sunday.
Kitzbühel is awash with fans, celebrities and sports stars during Hahnenkamm week. An outstanding festival atmosphere surrounds the venue, with the spotlight swinging to Kitzbühel’s bars and pubs in the evenings, featuring a variety of side events and parties—and attended by a huge number of celebrities.

Kitzbühel resort is a vast skiing area with 170km of groomed slopes and 32km of off-piste routes that connect several villages; the biggest being Jochberg and Kirchberg. Thanks to some pretty fast lifts and a relatively new gondola stretching across a wide valley, it’s easy to ski the different areas in one day and makes for some excellent touring around. The mountain and ski map can be a bit confusing at first – lifts are grouped by letters based on their location. But once you start to find your way around there’s some awesome skiing and boarding to be had. One of the great things about the runs is that there is often an easy and a hard way down, meaning groups of varying abilities don’t have a hard time riding the same lifts together. Most visitors staying in Kitzbühel will catch the Hahnenkamm gondola from town and then continue to travel up to skiing the Pengelstein area. There are some awesome, long, tree-lined runs down to Kirchberg and the smaller villages of Aschau and Skirast while the further away areas of Wurzhöhe, (connected to Pengelstein by the impressive 3S gondola) Bärenbadkogel and Resterhöhe areas are sunny and less crowded. Just make sure you leave enough time to get back across the valley if you’re staying at Kitzbühel. Advanced skiers will find some great steep skiing under the Steinbergkogel and Ehrenbachöhe lifts and plenty of other stashes of powder off-piste (if the conditions are good). There’s endless terrain to keep all levels of intermediates happy, including on the Kitzbüheler Horn side of the mountain. There’s a beginner nursery with free lifts in town at the base of the Hahnenkamm so given it’s so low it’s prone to poor snow conditions. When there’s no snow, beginner lessons are taken up on Kitzbüheler Horn and it has some great intermediate slopes to progress to – the drawback of the Horn being its location away from the main slopes. In summary Kitzbühel is not ideal for beginners. With our central location there is a ring bus that takes you from Snowbunnys Hostel direct to the Lift Stations at the Hahnenkamm or Hornbahn, alternatively it is a 5 minute walk to eitther.
