Sporty Fun After Sundown In Kitzbuhel
Kitzbühel is known as the sporting capital of the Alps. So, it’s no surprise that the fun doesn’t stop when the sun goes down. Here are three great ideas for enjoying sporting activities after dark.
If you’re not ready to leave the slopes when the sun goes down, give night skiing a try. Not only is it great for experienced skiers, as it’s challenging in new ways, but experts and newbies alike will delight in the beauty of the snow at night. Every Thursday and Friday, you can hit the slopes after dark at the Gaisberg. The trails are well prepared and clearly lit. Check with the ski schools in the area for tours, if you’d prefer a guide for your first run (or two) out. You’ll want some expert assistance to ensure you stay safe while you enjoy the magnificent scenery of the Kitzbühel mountains.
Snowshoeing by Flashlight
Grab a flashlight and head out for a snowshoeing adventure after the sun goes down. Not only can you explore Kitzbühel at a slower pace, but you’ll also enjoy a very different perspective of the landscape than you get when the sun is high and bright. Trails and paths are well maintained, and there are treks for every skill level, from total novice to advanced snowshoer. Check with the Kitzbühel Tourism office (Hinterstadt 18, 6370 Kitzbühel, Austria) for guided snowshoeing adventures.
Ice Skating by Moonlight
Picture this: moonlight glistens off the smooth ice while the statuesque Alps loom in the distance. Ice skating during the day is always a treat, but doing it under the beacon of a full moon is extra special. Strap on your skates at Schwarzsee Kitzbühel Lake (Schwarzsee, Kitzbühel 6370, Austria), an idyllic place to take a spin on the ice under a starry sky.
These are just a few of the many sporting adventures you’ll find in Kitzbühel after dark. Other fun outings include sledding, hiking, and cross-country skiing. Forget about sleeping and get out and explore.
