There were plenty of skiers and snowboarders up there and whilst there were just 2 lifts running it was a pretty ok ski, nothing like the glacier skiing at this time of the year but then again it isn’t glacier skiing. There is snow set arrive tomorrow and then it is expected to snow all week so the lifts at Kitzbuhel and other areas are likely to be opening as the snow reaches down into the valley. After skiing we stopped for a bite to eat at Schwarzsee where the local business owners seemed to be having an impromptu hair and tan expo – it seems many of them had been in warmer climes in recent weeks.
Kitzbuhel skiing in the first week of November

I am not the first to ski Kitzbuhel this autumn, the ski lifts at Pass Thurn have been running for a few weeks now but it was my first this season (and to date earliest) in Kitzbuhel.
