KSC Promoting young Wintersport Talents:

The Kitzbühel Ski Club (K.S.C.) is a non-profit organization that has consistently pursued its goal of promoting winter sports, especially to the young, since its foundation in 1902.

Some 8,700 members support the K.S.C. with their membership (annual fee for adults € 30,-- / children  15,--).

The K.S.C. offers all year round training and competitive sporting opportunities to 150 to 160 young athletes aged 6 to 16 years in the 7 Olympic winter sports disciplines of ski alpine, country ski, ski jumping, Nordic combination, biathlon, ski-cross and snowboard, organised by circa 15 coaches and staff.

Prerequisite for the K.S.C.’s success in developing young talent is having the right sporting venues. Alpine training takes place mainly on the “Ganslern” training and race course. Ski jumpers use the “Schattberg” ski jump facilities. Originally constructed in 1904, it has recently been converted to an all year round training facility using specialised mats and tracks. Cross country skiers enjoy use of the 4.5 km long “sports cross country trail” at Golf Schwarzsee. Well maintained by the K.S.C., it has artificial snow making facilities, floodlighting and includes 4 biathlon air rifle target stands.

An annual budget of around Euro 350,000 is required to support the ongoing costs of sporting activities and the facilities. This is covered by revenues from the annual International Hahnenkamm Races. The Kitzbühel Young Skiers would therefore like to take this opportunity to thank all Hahnenkamm Race sponsors, partners and supporters.

Since 1952, K.S.C. athletes have won 53 medals at Olympic Games and World Championships, thereby securing fame and glory for their club and hometown.
