Piste map Kitzsteinhorn

Vera´s insider tip: The Black Mamba is the most difficult and steepest slope in the Kitzsteinhorn ski area. The descent of up to 63% is very demanding, even for the most experienced skiers. It starts at the Kristallbahn valley station and ends at Langwiedboden. If you want to conquer the Black Mamba, you should take on the slope in the morning – the more people on the slope, the more difficult and icy the adventure becomes.
