Kitzbühel will begin the winter season this weekend, Saturday 19 and Sunday 20 October and will be the first non-glacier ski area in the Alps to open for the 2019/20 season.
But how is that possible?
Kitzbühel is able to open this early because of ‘snow farming’. The resort stored snow from last winter over the summer in huge piles under cover to protect it from melting.
