Ski Area Test – KitzSki is overall winner

Once again, against strong national and international competition, KitzSki has come out on top and won the hotly-contested accolades awarded by the prestigious Ski Area Test.

For the first time as OVERALL WINNER too – with 56 out of a possible 60 points.

For the first time the International Piste Quality Seal in Gold went to a Tyrolean ski area, thus emphasising the efficiency of the entire team at Bergbahn Kitzbühel. The Snow Groomer’s Trophy impressively completes the picture in terms of piste management and quality.


The Ski Area Test has developed into a premium brand and is an important indicator in the cable car industry for quality and safety. To date, 347 cable cars and tourist destinations have been tested. During the 2012/13 winter season, no fewer than 43 ski resorts were visited. The test team consists of a total of 220 industry experts (including executives, journalists, cable car staff, business specialists and experienced amateur skiers) and they work anonymously to gather together impressions of all the ski resorts throughout the European Alps. Among other things consideration is given to: General information and guidance, forms of transport and lifts, barriers and crossing signs, snowmaking equipment, lift personnel, mountain restaurants/huts, cashier staff, child services, marketing, events, ski schools, sports shops.
