By snowcat onto the Bichlalm
With or without a guide, the off-piste wonderland offers endless fun in the powder snow
Snowcat operating from 19.12.2015
Look forward to exceptional off-piste fun on the Bichlalm and to the most exclusive ascent in the region! And if you want, you can factor in the Bichlalm lift.
Kitzbühel in general, with its simply endless Alpine pastures, offers pretty well unlimited off-piste fun in the wider ski area's backcountry.
The Bichlalm in particular has for many years been recognised by those in the know way beyond the Tyrolean borders as backcountry heaven. With its ultra-modern snow groomer with a “piggyback cabin” and seating for 25 people, this year from the end of December to 29 February 2016 Bergbahn AG Kitzbühel will once again be operating a shuttle service up to the Bichlalm , making a rapid ascent to the Stuckkogel possible.
NEW: Bichlalm double chairlift (from 19.12.2015)
Since summer 2015 the new Bichlalm chairlift has been enjoying huge popularity. Look forward to the winter première, which is the perfect introduction to Bichlalm’s many side-country delights.
