Bad Kleinkirchheim, the famous home to one of ski racing's greatest ever names, Franz Klammer is situated in the Austrian Alps close to the Italian and Slovenian border. There is around 103km of perfectly groomed pistes both above and below the tree line plus extensive snow-making facilities to guarantee unlimited skiing pleasure.
The Nursery slopes are in the centre of the village and there you will find the gentle blue runs to progress to.
Virtually all the slopes in the Bad Kleinkirchheim and St. Oswald ski area are ideal for intermediates.
For expert skiers there are more demanding pistes such as the K 70 FIS run, named after the Austrian emperor Franz Klammer. This FIS run is difficult enough to ski, even for professional World-Cup ski-racers, it includes a tricky jump and a steep bottom section. The most difficult run is the 'Muldenabfahrt', which is 1km in length.
The Locals refer to the town as the BKK, it is one of the most popular resorts in Austria due to its thermal spas. It is a bit calm in BKK attracting mainly families. On almost every day (with the exception of Monday), Après-Ski with music is offered at the various huts. You can end your ski day with live music and Alpine snacks. A visit to the thermal spas in Bad Kleinkirchheim is very recommendable where you can end your ski day in the warm water.
