Subject to unfavourable weather conditions in Kitzbühel we have devised two plans. Plan A has been advised for all World Ski Awards guests by the mountain authorities in Kitzbühel due to difficult and potentially hazardous skiing conditions.

Plan A: Walk the Streif

  • 09:00 Departure from the main downstairs reception of the A-ROSA Kitzbühel
  • 09:15 Arrival at Hahnenkamm ski-lift station and cable car to take guests up the mountain
  • 09:45 Gathering at the Hahnenkamm-Race start-house, briefing from the President of the Kitzbühel Skiclub, a Schnapps to warm up and Tirolean live music!
  • Walk down the most famous ski run and race in the world of skiing – the Streif. Accompanied by experienced guides and Kitzbühel legends (not due to the difficultly of the walk, but because of their knowledge of the race)
  • Approximately 11:00 Tirolean food at the Seidlalm water-reservoirs
  • 11:30 Depart Seidlalm
  • 13:30 Arrival at the legendary Rasmushof Hotel, music entertainment and Signe’s world famous “Kaiserschmarren”
  • 15:00 (approx.) Return shuttle to the A-ROSA Kitzbühel ahead of the 6th annual World Ski Awards Gala Ceremony later that evening

Plan B: Skiing at the Resterkogel

World Cup team training is currently taking place at the Resterkogel, however conditions are currently challenging for normal skiers, and if temperatures and wind conditions change, the slopes could deteriorate further.

The team at Bergbahn AG Kitzbühel are flexible to meet particular requests for skiing on the Resterkogel at short notice.

Relax and re-energize in the beautiful 3,000 m² SPA-ROSA. Time to look and feel your best as the red-carpet awaits.
