Zell am See-Kaprun is one of the best known and most popular ski areas in Austria. Along with the view of the 30 mountains over 3000 metres, our winter sports lovers enjoy the combination of many hours of sun with a snow guarantee. They can reach the valley station of the Schmittenhöhebahn or Areitbahn in a few minutes’ drive to start the ski fun in next to no time!
The Kitzsteinhorn glacier, which is a great spot for skiing year-round at over 3,200 metres altitude, is also in the region.
Cross-country skiers find lots of slopes in the region.
Off the piste you will also find a wide range of leisure options. A romantic winter walking route goes straight past the castle and in a few minutes you can reach Lake Zell and see it sparkle in the winter sun. By strolling along the lake you can easily reach the town centre of Zell am See, where shops and boutiques are waiting to be browsed.
You can skate on Lake Zell if the ice is thick enough. Alternatively there is the indoor ice rink in Zell am See.
