Freeriders should look under Bichlam in order to ride some cool powder, while advanced riders will find the more testing runs on Ehrenbach (a part of the Hahnenkamm), and down the steeps of Ehrenbachgraben. The Jochberg area has some easy bowls to hunt out. The best way to cut the off-piste is to seek out the assistance of a local guide at the off-piste school. A great long off piste run is down to Aschau to the left of piste 56, just cut high left at the top.
Some good powder is normally to be found around the blacks under the Steinberg-kogel or on the Kitzbuhel Horn. Now that Kitzbuhel is linked to the SkiWelt area of Westendorf, Hopfgarten, Soll, and Ellmau, it may be worth paying extra for that lift ticket if you want to make a big adventure, but only if you're into clocking up miles of dullish piste, although Westendorf has some long off piste runs back into the Kitzbuhel valley and a good park.
