Skiing in Kühtai takes place on both sides of the valley. The northern side is the steeper, less sunny side of the ski area, whilst the southern side has more gentle skiing, higher up and sunny slopes throughout the winter. The northern side of the ski area has a big and popular snow park whilst the southern side of the ski area has night skiing mid-week and on Saturdays.

Kühtai now shares a ski pass with Hochötz, the Ötztal ski area just down the valley. The ski areas are linked by a short bus transfer and Hochötz ski area offers a good addition to the Kühtai ski area. There is a good range of skiing in and around the treeline which helps during inclement weather.
