In Kitzbühel, everyone will find trails to their liking: from the strongest experts – fanatics of skiing to “simple” skiers who are looking only for a pleasant pastime. On the tracks Mausefalle (mousetrap) and Streif (Streif – strip), the most famous races of the World Championship are held annually. Streif still has the reputation of the most technically difficult track in the world. Each winner will forever remain on the lists of legendary skiers, and also “receive” a personalized cabin on the Hahnenkammbahn lift.
The hardest Ganslernhang hosts the most prestigious slalom competition, Hausbergkante – as experts say: “This is the fastest way to a hospital bed”, Mausfalle (Mousetrap) – but there is nothing like a mouse. There is a “blind” flight of 80 meters. The skier does not see the landing site until he is high enough in the jump, when it is too late to make adjustments. In this case, athletes are guided by the tops of the mountains, otherwise they can crash on a tree.
Numerous other tracks of the resort are wide, they cross alpine meadows at a height where there is no longer any vegetation or run through coniferous copses. But any track, from the most difficult to the “simple” ones, is perfectly prepared, beyond praise.
