Full review

This is the best resort EVER. They have the best lifts in the world, and 8 snowmaking lakes with 700 snow guns. Wherever you go, a hut is around the corner to warm up or have a nice meal. Thanks to their fast lifts, you don't freeze to death, and the lifts often have bubbles and heat seating. There are 15 ski schools to help the kids learn, and many intermediate and easy runs, as well as many expert runs. Their 3S lift is amazing, spanning an entire valley with ONE tower. But beware the Hahnenkamm at rush hour, it is SUPER crowded. If that happens, head to Jochberg, resterhöhe, and the Bärenbadkogel area. If north american ski resorts like Mammoth or Aspen want to be like Kitzbühel, get BETTER LIFTS, MORE HUTS, and MORE TERRAIN.
